Although Ivanka Trump has distanced herself from her namesake brand, the business can't seem to catch a break. The San Francisco Chronicle reports that Ivanka's clothing company has been sued over what a boutique chain claims is unfair competition.

According to the class action lawsuit filed by Modern Appealing Clothing in San Francisco Superior Court on Thursday, the company (Ivanka Trump Marks, LLC) was able to gain an unfair advantage over others "from Donald J. Trump being the President of the United States and from Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared, working for the President of the United States".

The suit references the boost in publicity Ivanka's line garnered after daddy Trump dragged Nordstrom for dropping her and of course, Kellyanne's contribution, which allegedly saw sales increase by 346 percent from January to February.

In docs, obtained by TMZ, the company says even the prez is "exploiting the power and prestige of the White House" simply to help his daughter's company make a few bucks. Conway appeared on Fox & Friends in February and told viewers to "go buy Ivanka's stuff".

The lawsuit says MAC's business has been negatively impacted because, since the election, sales of Ivanka's brand have surged several hundred percent compared to past year (a Slice Intelligence report says USA sales of the brand on Amazon grew 332% in January and February compared to 2016). They are seeking to block her clothing from being sold in the state of California.

Ivanka Trump, woman-for-campaign-purposes and daughter of a poorly-executed pumpkin pie that was set on the window to cool and accidentally fell out, has several "fashion" lines that everyone seems to have collectively chose to no longer fuck with.
