That’s the thing about genetics. Ivanka Trump’s mother is a former fashion model and Olympic athlete. Her father is one of the best-known businessmen in the world. Ivanka Trump appeared on the cover of Seventeen before she was that old and has enjoyed considerable success with her own company. A summa cum laude graduate of the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, Ms. Trump (who is married to Jared Kushner, the publisher of The New York Observer) is the executive vice president of development and acquisitions of the Trump Organization. This is hardly a vanity position—she led her family’s acquisition of Miami’s Doral Resort and she created her family’s winning RFP and is overseeing the renovation for the OPO building in Washington, D.C. In 2007, she co-founded the highly successful Trump Hotel Collection with her brothers.
Ms. Trump has had great success with her own company, the Ivanka Trump Collection. Her brand began as a line of fine jewelry, but has since expanded to include shoes, handbags, clothing, outerwear, sunglasses and fragrance. In 2012 Ms. Trump opened her own storefront in Soho, the Ivanka Trump Boutique. She is also an ambassador for the U.N.’s “Girl Up” campaign. And did we mention that Ms. Trump is only 31 years old? With her impressive accomplishments at such an early age (at 26 she wrote a book that hit the New York Times best-seller list), we’re certain that Ms. Trump will continue to astound New York—and the world—with her sharp eye for fashion and keen business sense.
