Ivanka Trump and her family might have just found a new home in Washington, D.C., but it appears that the first daughter's line of clothing and accessories is losing its residence at at least two major retailers.
It was confirmed on Thursday that Nordstrom seems to be severing ties with the Ivanka Trump brand by no longer listing it on its online store, the New York Times reported. The company stated that it had not placed an order for the spring collection, which includes both apparel and footwear due to a decline in sales, not because of political reasons. "We’ve said all along we make buying decisions based on performance," the store said in a statement. "In this case, based on the brand’s performance, we’ve decided not to buy it for this season."
Now, it appears that luxury retailer Neiman Marcus is following suit by removing pieces from Trump's jewelry line from its site and at least one of its locations, Racked noted. By Friday, at least 21 items could no longer be purchased on the website though they had been available previously in the week. Just as with Nordstrom, the Dallas-based company appears to have removed the brand from its listing of designers they carry. The company has yet to provide any official word on why they removed the brand and products, though a drop off in sales due to a boycott may be to blame.
In January, Trump did step down from management and directorial roles at both her fashion brand and The Trump Organization, but she still will receive payments from the businesses.
Shannon Coulter, an outspoken opponent of President Donald Trump and his family, has spearheaded the financial initiative #GrabYourWallet, asking shoppers to no longer patronize stores and businesses that have links to the Trump family.
While it's unclear what the future holds for Trump's foray into the world of fashion, it appears that her association with her father's administration certainly isn't helping things.
Update: A representative for the Ivanka Trump brand has responded to the reports.
"Nordstrom ordered both apparel and shoes for the spring, and followed through with the orders on the apparel," a spokesperson told Refinery29. "They canceled the shoe order, kept the apparel order and moved the apparel from online into stores. It's there.”
