Ivanka Trump debuts uniforms line

NEW YORK – February 11, 2008 – Her business savvy already well-established, Ivanka Trump has revealed a new, equally impressive talent as fashion designer. The 26-year-old Trump has incorporated her strong sense of style into a line of custom-designed uniforms for Trump Hotel Collection, the new, ultra-luxury hotel brand helmed by a new generation of Trump business titans: Ivanka and her brothers Donald Jr. and Eric. The uniforms recently made their debut with the opening of Trump International Hotel & Tower Chicago on January 30, and reflect Ivanka's exceptional level of involvement in every detail of launching the new hospitality brand.

Inspired by current fashions and architectural lines, and produced in conjunction withChatsworth, Calif.-based House of Uniforms, Ivanka has created a cohesive collection distinguished by a clean, refined design, expert construction, and superior fabrics and textures that befit the world's most luxurious hotel brand. And she has balanced style with practicality, creating beautiful ready-to-wear garments that are also dynamic and easy to clean. 
Ivanka has ensured that every element is as refined as the name behind the collection, bestowing a sense of pride and distinction on all associates, from front to back of house. Each look has been designed to reflect the associate's purpose and the area of the hotel in which it is worn. Together, the complement of styles creates a fashion statement that is understated and fluid – with a contemporary edge.
Charcoal tones are carried through the uniforms of the Trump Metro Collection, which will be worn at all city hotels – New York; SoHo; Chicago; New Orleans;Toronto; and Aberdeen, Scotland. A female concierge or front-office associate wears a striking three-piece suit of fine, lightweight wool in cool charcoal, with a fitted, single-breasted jacket with Mandarin collar, fine detailing and topstitching, and a choice of a pant with a tuxedo-inspired topstitched side-stripe or a knee-length pencil skirt. Her male 

counterpart is outfitted in a European-cut suit with peak lapel in charcoal pinstripe wool with trousers featuring a watch pocket.
Shades of charcoal also define the doorman's heavy Italian wool herringbone coat and two-toned jacket with off-center closure; the ladies' hostess dress in fine wool with waist treatment and off-center closure; and the housekeeping pantsuits, which have been designed with the same clean architectural cut of the collection in a fine synthetic blend for breathability and freedom of movement.
Restaurant uniforms reflect the elegance of the 1950s and the service-oriented culture of the finest European hotels. Female servers are outfitted in flowing, charcoal waist-length jackets with flared, elbow-length sleeves and a funnel collar, while male servers wear a tailored jacket with pointed hem and banded collar.
The uniforms of the Trump Resort Collection – Las Vegas; Dubai, U.A.E.; Baja, Mexico; Cap Cana, Dominican Republic; Fort Lauderdale, Fla.; and Waikiki, Hawaii– are equally sophisticated but with a lighter look and feel. Here, cool combinations of tan and stone or taupe and beige prevail. The ladies' suit, with its belted waist and long- and short-sleeve versions, matches the urban version in stylishness and carries through the same topstitch detailing.
