Ivanka’s Website is Officially Shut Down

This is the end for Ivanka…or, for the time being, her fashion brand’s website.

Her entrepreneurial spirit was doused earlier this summer, when the brand announced that they would discontinue in order for Ivanka to concentrate solely on her political work in Washington. Ivanka explained her reasoning behind this strategy, saying, “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…so making this decision now is the only fair outcome for my team and partners.”

Although this news was released in July, only now has the company officially shut down their site. Ivanka Trump’s namesake business posted a statement on the web page, thanking their loyal customers and collaborators. “It has been an honor to build this incredible community of women and we are very proud of the content and product we delivered,” the message reads. “Most importantly, we cultivated amazing partnerships and friendships during the life of the brand.”

Bye, Ivanka!

In this age of misinformation, our work is needed like never before. We report on the news that matters most to American Jews, driven by truth, not ideology.

At a time when newsrooms are closing or cutting back, the Forward has removed its paywall. That means for the first time in our 126-year history, Forward journalism is free to everyone, everywhere. With an ongoing war, rising antisemitism, and a flood of disinformation that may affect the upcoming election, we believe that free and open access to Jewish journalism is imperative.

Readers like you make it all possible. Right now, we’re in the middle of our Passover Pledge Drive and we still need 300 people to step up and make a gift to sustain our trustworthy, independent journalism.
