Why Ivanka Trump Is Shutting Down Her Fashion Line

Ivanka Trump is closing her fashion brand in favor of a career in public policy. In a statement, she expressed gratitude to her employees, who will be laid off, the New York Post reported. "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,” Trump said.
