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.
Shafiroff told the New York Post that Zac Posen, B. Michael America, Victor de Souza, and Zang Toi are among the designers who say they’d be willing to dress the First Lady to-be.
“Any designer who dresses her will get enormous press,” Shafiroff told the outlet.
“‘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.
Last month, designer Calvin Klein said “of course” he would dress Melania Trump.
“She’s beautiful,” the designer told TMZ.
