Ivanka Trump clothing line reports record sales

Shannon Coulter hardest hit.

From The Hill: Ivanka Trump’s eponymous women’s fashion line is reporting record sales figures despite calls for a boycott and controversies surrounding President Trump.

“Since the beginning of February, they were some of the best performing weeks in the history of the brand,” Abigail Klem, the president of the Ivanka Trump fashion brand, tells Refinery29 in an interview published Tuesday. “For several different retailers Ivanka Trump was a top performer online, and in some of the categories it was the [brand’s] best performance ever.”

The news of a sales surge comes after Nordstrom announced in early February that it would no longer carry the 35-year-old’s clothing and accessories, citing poor product sales. The move caused President Trump to tweet shortly after the announcement that his daughter was being “treated so unfairly” by the luxury department store giant.

Also last month, Neiman Marcus stopped carrying the first daughter’s jewelry line on its website, and employees of T.J. Maxx and Marshalls stores were instructed to throw away any signage advertising her wares.

The Office of Government Ethics recommended disciplinary action against White House adviser Kellyanne Conway after she urged viewers to “go buy Ivanka’s stuff” during a February interview on “Fox & Friends.”

A campaign called Grab Your Wallet, which is critical of the Trump administration, asked shoppers to boycott retailers with any Ivanka or Donald Trump

According to the e-commerce aggregator Lyst, from January to February, Ivanka Trump sales increased 346 percent, Refinery29 writes.

The mother of three announced in January that she would take a formal leave of absence from her apparel and accessories firm after her father became commander in chief, saying she would “no longer be involved with the management or operations” of the company.

Klem, a registered Democrat, says she attempts to limit any chatter between herself and the company’s namesake. “I really like Ivanka. We’re business associates. We’re very close in a way. … But I want to do this with real integrity. So I feel like, while we’re not banned from speaking personally, I think it’s easier if we talk as little as possible.”

Ethics counselors advised that the company cease using images of Ivanka Trump in “new promotional, advertising, or marketing materials,” according to the profile piece on Klem. The guidance apparently doesn’t impact existing marketing materials, such as the company’s website.

“It’s unprecedented what this brand is dealing with,” says Klem. “We are really committed to having the brand be separate, even from [Ivanka], so certainly her dad is even more distant from that. We’re committed to doing everything we can to carve an identity for this brand that is about what the brand stands for and the core brand attributes. And so absolutely, it complicated matters.”

  6. It goes to show the more negatives from the left the higher the sales. Bet they would love to own a pair of panties with the trade mark “Ivanka Trump” made in the USA 🇺🇸

  7. Well, HELLO—-if it’s between, for instance, Nancy Pelosi and Claire Mcaskill styles OR Ivanka Trump……hmmmmmmm…..I pick the one that won’t make me look like a frumpy fat woman from the mid-West, or a dottering aged, striated Californian with familial tremor….looped ties at the neck and all that from my 1970’s blouse and constructed jacket….

    I pick Ivanka for my money! No contest…no matter WHAT party from which I come…..don’t want to go to the mat wearing the aged wardrobe of the far left….. 🙂 Color me Trump on this issue 🙂
