Ivanka Trump steps out in NYC wearing her own fashion label, 3 months after shutting down brand
Her brand had become controversial shortly after her father's presidency win, causing concerns about conflicts of interest. It had also become a target of political boycott.
President Donald Trump's daughter and senior White House aide, Ivanka Trump, stepped out of her New York City apartment Wednesday morning in her own fashion label loafers, which was shut down three months ago. Reports stated the 36-year-old headed out in a $450 black and green stretch-knit sweater by Isabel Marant, featuring touches of white and turquoise, and slim pants. She completed the ensemble with a pair of black flat loafers from her namesake brand and a laptop tucked underneath her right arm, according to the Daily Mail.
The first daughter shut down her fashion line in July this year, stating she had made a conscious decision to focus more on her work as a White House adviser. Her brand had become controversial shortly after her father's presidency win, causing concerns about conflicts of interest. It had also become a target of political boycotts, reports stated.
Ivanka was accompanied by her husband and White House aide Jared Kushner as he went to board a Secret Service vehicle. Reports stated the Secret Service on Tuesday had stopped a CBS reporter from asking Kushner about Saudi Arabia in a commercial flight from Washinton D.C. to New York City.
Meanwhile, Ivanka was recently in the news after the resignation of outgoing US Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, became public. There were mounting speculations Ivanka would replace Haley, as the President suggested she would be good for the position.
However, he also added if he did appoint his daughter to the position, he would be accused of nepotism. The President, before leaving for a campaign rally in Iowa last week, said his daughter would make an "incredible" UN ambassador: "I've heard how good would Ivanka be. Ivanka would be dynamite, but I would be accused of nepotism if you can believe it, right."
Ivanka Trump, however, shut down the rumors last week by tweeting she had no plans to represent the US to the United Nations. "It is an honor to serve in the White House alongside so many great colleagues and I know that the President will nominate a formidable replacement for Ambassador Haley. That replacement will not be me," Ivanka wrote.
