Ivanka Trump isn't relying on her father's success to get her through her adult life. The 28-year-old jewelry designer is making her foray into handbag design, with a collaboration with Marc Fisher Footwear to design a collection of reasonably priced handbags that will launch next Spring. The collection will be released at department stores like Nordstrom, Lord & Taylor and Macy's come February. With a price range of $75 to $175, Ivanka's fans who cannot afford her jewelry collection will be able to own a handbag she created.
“I would like consumers to be able to connect with the Ivanka Trump brand in a wide range of price points while maintaining the integrity of the brand from a quality and design perspective,” Trump explained.
“My overall goal is that every consumer will have the opportunity to grow with the Trump brand, from the purchase of Ivanka Trump shoes and accessories to ultimately staying in Trump hotels, playing our golf courses and living in our condominium buildings.”
The collection reflects Ivanka's personal style, reinventing lady-like totes and satchels, as well as elegant evening bags using exotic skins and three dimensional textures in spring colors. Some of the bags will be timeless additions to any accessories closet. Ivanka also plans on launching a shoe line in the same price range as the handbags. Her ambition to make fashion affordable no matter the level of disposable income is her true Trump card.
