Ivanka Trump has a certain cosmopolitan flair, which has carried her into the world of haute couture. And while her daddy is fanning the flames of ‘Made in the USA’ (sorta), his baby girl makes no bones about her fashion being made in China.
And now, her scarves in particular are under fire. In fact, the issue is so hot that the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) said in a notice her lovely ascots “do not meet the federal flammability standards for clothing textiles, posing a burn risk.”
Yes, wearing her kerchiefs could cause you to spontaneously burst into flames. Well, at least that’s the PR perception because the CPSC has announced that 20,000 of Ivanka’s scarves are being recalled for violating the U.S. Federal Flammability Standard.
“We’re disappointed to learn of the need for Global Brands Group, our license partner, to recall two styles of Ivanka Trump scarves, but we are relieved that immediate action is being taken,” a spokesperson for the Ivanka Trump collection said in a statement.
“We’re committed to providing our audience of millennial working women with accessibly [sic] priced, quality products that suit their needs and look great. We’re seeing to it that this issue is fixed immediately.”
So, what’s that in fashion… a fire sale? What? Too soon?
