Many felt the brand disrespected the traditional Japanese kimono clothing.

The 38-year-old announced last week on Instagram she was changing the name.

Kim initially said she would not be changing the name despite the huge backlash.

But when Kyoto mayor Daisaku Kadokawa urged her to 'reconsider' she caved.
