Ivanka Trump clothing and jewelry
In 2007 she formed a partnership with a diamond vendor, Dynamic Diamond Corp., to create Ivanka Trump Fine Jewelry, a line of diamond and gold jewelry, sold at her first flagship retail store in Manhattan.
In November 2011, Trump’s retail flagship moved from Madison Avenue to 109 Mercer Street, a larger space in the fashionable Soho district.
On October 2, 2015, retail website racked.com reported that “Ivanka Trump’s flagship store on Mercer Street appear[s] to be closed” and, noting that the shop had been “stripped clean,” said that it is unclear exactly when the shop stopped doing business.
As of October 2016, though, the company’s website lists Trump Tower as its flagship boutique and its only dedicated retail shop, with the brand also available at fine-jewelry stores throughout the US and Canada, as well as in Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates.
Ivanka Trump is currently Executive Vice President of Development & Acquisitions at the Trump Organization. In December 2012, members of 100 Women in Hedge Funds elected Ivanka Trump to their board.
Ivanka Trump has her own line of fashion items, including clothes, handbags, shoes, and accessories, which is available in major U.S. department stores. Her brand has been criticized for allegedly copying designs by other designers, and by PETA and other animal rights activists for using fur from rabbits.
In 2016, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission recalled “Ivanka Trump”-branded scarves because they did not meet federal flammability standards.
A 2016 analysis found that most of the fashion line was produced outside the U.S. As of February 2017, department store chains Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom dropped Trump’s fashion line, citing “poor performance.”
