Ivanka Trump to Shutter Fashion Brand

WASHINGTON — Ivanka Trump is shutting down her fashion brand, which she started in 2014 and has been a target of boycotts during her father’s presidential tenure.

“When we first started this brand, no one could have predicted the success that we would achieve,” Ivanka Trump said in a statement. “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.

“I am beyond grateful for the work of our incredible team who has inspired so many women; each other and myself included. While we will not continue our mission together, I know that each of them will thrive in their next chapter,” the statement continued.

The Wall Street Journal first reported about the closure of the brand.

Ivanka Trump resigned from the business last year and placed it in a trust, but some groups like Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington have still raised questions about her interest in the company.
