Why Private Equity Is Still Chasing Fashion
Ivanka Trump's Fashion Choices Are Much More Significant Than You Might Think
What you wear really does matter. At least, if you're the president's daughter. A new report shows that Ivanka Trump's fashion choices are significant, thanks to the fact that she's often donning pieces from her own eponymous fashion line. The revelation is the latest in a long history of scrutiny of Donald Trump and his family's business connections and wealth.
An investigation in The Wall Street Journal published on Dec. 27 found that in 46 of 68 social media photos in 2017, between when she officially became an adviser in March and October, Trump was sporting her own brand's clothing. That may not seem like a big deal, but Trump wearing her own items is calling into question federal rules around promotion. Under the law, public office holders are prohibited from using their position to promote brands from which they benefit; executive branch employees are similarly prohibited from endorsing products, people, or companies.
It appears that there may be some impact on business when Trump wears her clothes publicly. As was pointed out on CNN's New Day on Tuesday, Trump wore her brand's cold shoulder sweater dress at a NASA event on Dec. 11. That dress then sold out on the Macy's website.
Trump told the Journal in an email statement that, "If what motivated me was to grow my businesses and make money, I would have stayed in New York and done just that."
