In the wake of Donald Trump being elected the 45th President of the United States, politics continue to affect the fashion industry. This time, the controversy is dressing or not dressing First Lady, Melania.
Just five days after designer Sophie Theallet penned an open letter to the fashion industry stating she planned to boycott dressing the First Lady, other designers have begun to open up.
Tommy Hilfiger plans to keep politics out of it and encourages others to do the same. As told to Women’s Wear Daily, Hilfiger said, “I think Melania is a very beautiful woman and I think any designer should be proud to dress her.”
Celebrity designer, Bradley Scott agrees with Hilfiger and believes Theallet’s letter to be disrespectful, telling Fox411, “First Lady is First Lady, it’s a position that should be exalted not disrespected.”
As of today, no other designers have jumped on board with Theallet and Melania is remaining mum on the subject.
