Trump Towers
For Ivanka Trump, it’s out with the old and in with the new. With the spring debut of her shoe line, produced by Marc Fisher Footwear, the businesswoman is in the process of updating her wardrobe to include only styles from her namesake collection. “I [said to] my husband, it’s a good thing we’re in real estate because we’re going to need a bigger closet,” she joked to Insider, though she remained mum on the number of styles and brands she’ll be parting with. Trump drew quite the high-powered turnout for her footwear debut party last week, with her family — including father Donald and stepmother Melania — joining the likes of Macy’s exec Terry Lundgren and Zappos.com CEO Tony Hsieh. Trump’s samples arrived at the showroom just in time for the FFANY show, and the collection spanned jewel-embellished bridal looks to beach-ready flip-flops. “I’m surprised at how large of a line it is. I like what I saw,” said Lundgren, who was personally handed a gift bag by Donald Trump as he made his exit. The Trump patriarch was a bit more gushing. “[Ivanka] has been very focused her whole life,” he said. And while the father and daughter work closely together on the real estate empire, The Donald said he has no intention of getting involved in Ivanka’s fashion business. “I wear shoes. I don’t sell them.”
