Fashion designers with true talent are champing at the bit to design Melania Trump’s inauguration gown. A real smack in the face to the overcharged liberal designers who thought insulting the new FLOTUS was in good taste.
According to Breitbart– A number of iconic fashion designers are reportedly chomping at the bit for the chance to dress future First Lady Melania Trump for Inauguration Day.
New York socialite and philanthropist and Trump family friend Jean Shafiroff, who sits on the Couture Council of The Museum at New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology, took a poll to determine how interested designers were when asked their thoughts on dressing Mrs. Trump.
“Any designer who dresses her will get enormous press,” Shafiroff told the outlet.
The news comes after several world-renowned designers, including Tom Ford and Marc Jacobs, publicly declined to design clothing for Mrs. Trump.
“‘I have no interest whatsoever in dressing Melania Trump,” Jacobs told WWD in November.
Shortly after Trump’s victory in November, designer Sophie Theallet urged her colleagues in the fashion world not to design clothing for or associate with the new First Lady in any way.
“The rhetoric of racism, sexism, and xenophobia unleashed by her husband’s presidential campaign are incompatible with the shared values we live by. I encourage my fellow designers to do the same,” she said.
You wouldn’t think Calvin Klein would be on a TMZ videographer’s list of people to accost outside trendy restaurants. But that’s just what happened the other night, when the designer was leaving Catch. The reporter asked if he would design for Melania Trump at the inaugural ball, if he “got the call.”
Klein is a Democrat who’s dressed Michelle Obama and donated $43,000 to Hillary Clinton’s campaign this year, but his response puts him in the camp of Tommy Hilfiger and Thom Browne, who’ve both said they would be willing to dress the incoming Republican First Lady.
