Ivanka Trump’s clothing and shoe company will be shuttered “ASAP”.
The line of shoes, purses, clothing and accessories had been already been dropped by several stores including Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, and DSW since the inauguration of her father, President Donald Trump.
The staff reportedly has already been informed they are being laid off when the 4-year-old company folds, Page Six. Trump stepped away from the company in 2017 to take on a senior advisory role at the White House.
In a statement to Page Six, Ivanka said, “When we first started this brand, no one could have predicted the success that we would achieve. After 17 months in Washington, I do not know when or if I will ever return to the business, but I do know that my focus for the foreseeable future will be the work I am doing here in Washington, so making this decision now is the only fair outcome for my team and partners.”
