MAC is suing Ivanka but according to an interview, they don’t care about sales: ‘One of the rules I learned early on about MAC is we’d rather make a friend than a sale’

San Francisco based Modern Appealing Clothing ( MAC ) is suing Ivanka Trump for ‘unfair competition’. The  suit also asked for a restraining order that prevents the Ivanka Trump label from being sold in California. MAC is described as a “San Francisco’s fashion Wonderland”. It  was founded in San Francisco by brother and sister Ben and Chris Ospital, with their mom, Jeri, in 1980.

While Ivanka’s clothes are classic chic, Modern Appealing Clothing (MAC) just complete opposite:

The merchandise is high-concept fantasy” with “collections of independent brands and local designers with out-of-the-ordinary visions

Ben Ospital:We all had a radical streak. Mom and Dad supported Cesar Chavez, and at 12 I was making signs for United Farm Workers protests.

Ben: We still say today what we said then: “Dress one person well, they’ll tell 20 people.” That’s how things started.

Goble: One of the rules I learned early on about MAC is we’d rather make a friend than a sale. I understand through Ben, Chris and Jeri’s guidance the importance of the karma of clothes.

    Call me old school but those outfits suck.

    In any event, “MAC” cannot hold a candle to Ivanka Trump.
