Ivanka Trump, everyone's second favorite Trump daughter (begrudging shout out to Tiffany), is shutting down her clothing brand. According to the Wall Street Journal, she "grew frustrated by the restrictions she placed on the company to avoid possible conflicts of interest while serving in the White House."

Hmm. It could also have something to do with plummeting sales, boycotts, retailers jumping ship, and multiple copyright infringement lawsuits, but who's counting?

Before "her" designs go gently into that good night, let's take a look at what we won't be missing.

The design process for this dress probably involved something close to the following exchange:

  • "How can we spice up the little black dress?"
  • "Oo, I know! Make the sleeves look like a bed ruffle!"
  • "Good enough!"


Speaking of sleeves, WHY GOD WHY?!?

What if the Hamburglar was a white woman who liked wearing her corset over her clothes and backward? (Kris Kross' impact!)

Wait, what is that thing tacked onto knock-off Taylor Swift? Ants on a log?

Another design process exchange:

  • "How do we spice up the little white dress?"
  • "Oo, I know! Take this hole puncher and go to town!"
  • "Good enough!"

Who hasn't wanted to cut out a section of the carpeting at their dentist's office and wrap it around their body?

For most designers, managing to make a "compression" dress with built-in "hidden shapewear" look this baggy and ill-fitting would be a challenge. Ivanka isn't most designers.

Yet another design process exchange:

  • "How do we spice up a basic white t-shirt?"
  • "Oo, I know! Let's staple a random pattern on the front!"
  • "Good enough!"

For preppy funeral-attending women who want to show some clavicle skin and don't mind ending up with unfortunate lace-patterned tan lines.

This frock is so grotesque, Voldemort considered making it one of his horcruxes.

Who says you can't wear your French maid Halloween costume all year round? This is a free country (for now)!

Fighting over whether a dress is blue and black or white and gold is so 2015. 2018 is all about fighting over whether or not a dress has suffered a bleach accident.

All of these looks go perfectly with this pendant that reads "Opportunity is everywhere." I'm guessing there wasn't enough space to finish the sentence: "...when you're a white woman born in the lap of luxury, who can always rely on nepotism."

Or this one, which stands for "courage." Huh, that's a weird way of spelling complicit.

Au revoir, Ivanka Trump fashion line! Promise you won't write.
