Venezuelan-born fashion designer, Carolina Herrera discusses the hot topic of dressing the incoming first lady stating, “It is an honor.”
While at an event at New York’s Lincoln Center, that was being held in her honor, Carolina Herrera said she would be glad to dress the first lady, Melania Trump.
Joining her fashion peers on the topic, Ralph Lauren and Jean Paul Gaultier, Herrera said, “It is an honor to dress the first ladies of the country and it’s something to do for the United States. It’s not for myself. It’s for the public.”
Considering former first ladies such as Laura and Barbara Bush her friends, Herrera insisted that, “Donald Trump was elected and he will be our president. Melania deserves the respect of any first lady before her.”
This is in stark contrast to other well known designers, such as Tom Ford, who stated last month that when he was previously asked to dress Melania, he declined. Ford told The View her look is “not my image.”
Ford went as far as to say that a first lady should be able to “relate to everybody.” Therefore, his clothes were “too expensive,” despite having previously dressed Michelle Obama.
Several other designers followed in Fords’ shoes such Marc Jacobs and Sophie Theallet.
Herrera appears to be a favorite of the Trump family as she previously dressed Marla Maples, President-Elect Trump’s second wife. Trump’s daughter Ivanka, can often be seen at Herrera’s fashion events.
