About Us

Our Story

At Ivanka Trump, we're committed to helping women create the lives they want to lead.

When we launched our brand in 2011, we aimed to fill a void in the market by creating a line of chic, affordable, easy to wear pieces for modern women—those who might not have the luxury of a wardrobe change to match the many different hats they wear throughout the day.

Our company was founded by women for women. We're focused on solutions and we work to create content and product that's made to make your days a little bit easier. Think, the ultimate work tote (phone charger, included!), layering pieces that can be worn multiple ways and form-flattering dresses with hidden shapewear built in. Our community of rising stars and industry thought-leaders contribute to content that's created to help you achieve your own version of success. From negotiating a job offer to taking time off to raise a family to planning a triumphant return to the workforce, we've got you covered.

The Ivanka Trump collection includes shoes, handbags, apparel, accessories, fashion jewelry, fragrance and baby bedding. It's available at select retailers including Bloomingdale’s, Lord & Taylor, Dillard’s, Macy’s, Zappos and Amazon—with a few of our favorite pieces available here at IvankaTrump.com.
