What's in a Name?: Vogue Threatens to Sue Canadian Fashion Event

Most recently the Victoria, British Columbia fashion industry had organized a fashion event celebrating the West Coast's talented designers. This fabulous evening was going to called, Victoria's Fashion Night Out in order to pay tribute to all of Victoria's fashionistas who had planned to take part in the event. Unfortunately, the name that the organizers had intended to call the event was a little similar to another well-known fashion event, Vogue's Fashion Night Out.

As soon as Vogue's legal team caught wind of the similarities between the names they contacted the organizers of Victoria's Fashion Night Out and demand that they change the name immediately change their name or legal action will be taken. Victoria's Fashion Night Out organizers had to scramble to change the name the night before the event to simply, Victoria's Fashion Night.

I guess when it comes to fashion the early bird gets the worm.
