As the inauguration party of the future president of the United States is just a few days away, Melania Trump, the future First Lady, has to ensure she will look her best. To do that, she needs a top designer to create her gown.
Jean Shafiroff, who is friends with the Trumps and member of New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology, said a few words about the designers that are willing to dress the next FLOTUS.
Zac Posen is one of them, he already mentioned once that he would dress Melania. Amongst the ones that want to do it are Victor de Souza, Zang Toi and B. Michael America.
Shafiroff points that anyone that will dress her that day, will get a lot of attention.
The future First Lady has been in quite some trouble regarding fashion. Many designers declared that they won’t ever dress her.
Tom Ford is one of them, since then he clarified his comment saying that he feels like the President and his First Lady should wear American things, that are affordable. His creations are not appropriate, as they are very expensive and Italian.
Marc Jacobs also said that he doesn’t want to. Sophie Theallet, who worked with Michelle Obama numerous times, warned designers after Trump won the elections. She said that they should not work or design for Melania at any cost.
On New Year’s Eve, Melania wore a Dolce & Gabbana dress. Stefano Gabbana then took to his Instagram to express his admiration towards her, naming Melania “D&G woman”. Fans of the brand were pissed off by his comment.
Another designer that is looking forward to a collaboration with Melania is Calvin Klein.
