Here, we round up 17 designers who have spoken out on where they stand. Advertisement - Continue Reading Below. Zac Posen: Against Dressing Melania.

Melania Trump (/məˈlɑːniə/; born Melanija Knavs; [mɛˈlaːnija ˈknaːu̯s], Germanized to Melania Knauss; born April 26, 1970) is a Slovenian-American former fashion model and, as wife of the 45th U.S. President Donald Trump, the current First Lady of the United States. Melanija Knavs was born in Novo Mesto, and grew up in Sevnica, in the Yugoslav republic of Slovenia. She worked as a fashion model through agencies in Milan and Paris, later moving to New York City in 1996. Her modeling career was

Melania Trump will become First Lady of the United States in January, a gig which typically has fashion designers falling all over themselves with excitement. But thanks to her controversial husband Donald Trump, many prominent designers have gone on the record saying they won't dress (or at least, that they're hesitant to dress) our future FLOTUS. Read their statements here. View Gallery 10 Photos.

Hervé Pierre, the designer behind Melania Trump ‘s inauguration night dress, has opened up about his big moment on the national stage. The former Carolina Herrera creative director spoke to Harper’s Bazaar about the “honor” of creating the First Lady’s white off-the-shoulder gown for the Inaugural Ball, and exactly what went into designing the piece for her first night in the White House.  The designer shares that Melania told him at one point during the design process, “Hervé, I love you, but I cannot move my arm to hold my husband’s arm when we dance.”

"Melania Trump designed the 'Be Best' logo herself, an East Wing official told us," said Davis on the social media platform. "She likes clean lines, the official said, and wanted something that would appeal to children." Melania Trump designed the “Be Best” logo herself, an East Wing official told us.

"As adults we can and should be best at educating our children about the importance of a healthy and balanced life," she told an assembled crowd at the launch yesterday.

The vanilla crepe off-the-shoulder gown with a red silk ribbon at the waist was a collaboration "between herself and Hervé Pierre, former creative director of Carolina Herrera," according to the first lady's office.  First lady Melania Trump had a solo appearance on May 25, 2017 in Brussels while President Trump was at a NATO summit.

Melania Trump relies on the styling services of Hervé Pierre, a freelance designer who immigrated to the U.S. in his 20s and now shops anonymously for her New York.  At least since Jackie Kennedy was criticized for her preference for pricey European designer duds, the First Lady's wardrobe has been politicized. Yet, Melania Trump's choice in clothing has led to political eyebrow raising of the type we haven't quite seen before.

“Melania changes outfits during flight!” Does it really matter? Of course. Because Mrs. Trump has been, up to now, a cipher cloistered in a gilded New York penthouse but is about to take her place in the East Wing (at least according to her team) as the United States’ official hostess. And because, as a representative of the country and the Trump administration on the world stage, this was her clearest statement yet about how she will manage that position.  She didn’t ask one designer, like Hervé Pierre, who created her inauguration dress as well as the leather skirt she wore to depart Washington, to help her assemble her wardrobe. She didn’t underscore her own international story.

Fashion is Melania Trump's primary mode of communication. One year since her husband's inauguration, here's what we've learned about the first lady from the way she dresses.  Melania at President Trump's inauguration, wearing Ralph Lauren.

As we near the first anniversary of Donald Trump’s inauguration, it’s fair to say that our exposure to our commander-in-chief’s stream of consciousness becomes more intimate every day. And yet we still know surprisingly little about our first lady, Melania Trump. Unlike her predecessor, Michelle Obama, the former model appears to have taken a backseat in her husband’s White House.

First Lady Melania Trump has already stepped out in a series of designer looks for her first 56 days in the role, from Ralph Lauren to custom Herve Pierre and most recently a black beaded $9,590 Michael Kors suit for Donald Trump's first joint address to Congress. However, unlike an A-list actress, Trump is reportedly footing the bill. Related: Melania Trump's style: 124 PHOTOS. Melania Trump's style transformation. See Gallery.

Though Melania Trump, a former model and immigrant herself, has worn designer clothing throughout the campaign, including the now-infamous $1,100 Gucci pussy-bow blouse, she appears to have obtained it herself. After the Republican National Convention in July, Trump’s spokesperson told Women’s Wear Daily that she ”isn’t working with any designers,” and had purchased her convention dress online. There has been a noticeable absence of press releases from brands encouraging the media to note that she is, in fact, wearing their clothing—usually the sort of thing fashion brands are very happy to ca

Jean Paul Gaultier has said he would have no problem dressing Melania Trump, despite designers Tom Ford and Marc Jacobs saying they would not do so. A number of designers have declared that they would refuse a request from America's future First Lady. But others, including Tommy Hilfiger, Thom Browne and now Gaultier, have said they would not have a problem. Asked whether he would dress Mrs Trump, Gaultier replied: "Definitely. It's not my objective but why not?"
