She’ll focus on her work at the White House.

Ivanka Trump plans to shut down her fashion brand, which includes jewelery along with clothing, handbags and shoes, the Wall Street Journal reports.

Trump will focus on her role as a senior adviser to her father’s administration, according to the newspaper.

She had felt stymied by restrictions she placed on the company, IT Collections LLC, to avoid possible conflicts of interest while serving in the White House,” according to the Journal. Trump had distanced herself from the 18-employee company’s operations.

Last year, the brand moved away from fine jewelry and toward fashion jewelry. Brand President Abigail Klem said at the time that the move was “part of our company’s commitment to offering solution-oriented products at accessible price points.”

She told the Journal she’s not sure when or if she’ll return to the retail sector.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Zadok Master Jewelers

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
