From Leah Barkoukis at Townhall:
“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 company, told Refinery29 in an interview. “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 comes after Nordstrom announced it would no longer carry her line in their stores, citing poor sales. Other retailers like Jet, Belk, Neiman Marcus, and ShopStyle quickly followed suit, while employees of T.J. Maxx and Marshalls were told to throw away signs advertising the brand. More.
Reality check:Readers will recall that fashion and makeup firms have been boycotting the Trumps since the election.
Both Bigs (Hollywood and Fashion) have forgotten that people liked them when they portrayed other people’s stories and images. Once they chose to force us all to attend to theirs, they found themselves in competition with every bore on the planet. And we know how that goes.
The Trumps were the first to figure out the significance of their decline: Their disapproval does not matter the way it used to.
