Why we think BLACKPINK’S Lisa might be launching a fashion line
The mega K-pop star's name has just been registered as merchandising labels and this is what we know so far.
Unless you've spent the last few years with your head buried in the sand, you've probably heard of major K-pop group BLACKPINK. The group of four have been topping music charts all over the world with their catchy songs and were even the first ever K-pop girl act to perform a set at Coachella.
The group hasn't released any new music since its popular Kill This Love EP dropped almost a year ago, but now it seems that one of its members may have another project in the works. According to The Pop Hub, BLACKPINK's management label, YG Entertainment, has just filed a trademark under singer Lisa's name.
The trademark is reportedly registered under merchandising labels, which means that a clothing line may be on its way. If the label gets approved, the owner of the trademark will have the rights to produce outerwear, ready-made clothing, underwear, mufflers, headwear, waterproof clothing, shirts and more.
Fans have been quick to note, though, that the trademark has been registered under Lisa's birth names, "Manobal Lalisa" and "Manobal", rather than her stage name. Controversially, this could mean that the star won't own the rights to her own name when it comes to merchandising purposes.

Hopefully, Lisa did approve the label herself and has big plans for her future in fashion. If the girls' stage style is anything to go by, her line would certainly be a bestseller.
