“It’s not for myself. It’s for the public.”
Designer Carolina Herrera has said she would dress future First lady Melania Trump after a few designers have refused:
Who might dress the wife of President-elect Donald Trump has become an issue after designers Sophie Theallet and Tom Ford, who have both dressed first lady Michelle Obama, said they wouldn’t do so for Mrs. Trump, a former model.
But when asked if she would, Herrera said, “Of course I will, as the first lady of this country I will. Of course.”
She added, “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.”
Obama has worn Herrera while in the White House.
Herrara has said before that she believes those who refuse to dress Melanie will eventually cave:
“I think that in two or three months they’ll reach out, because it’s fashion,” Herrera says. “You’ll see everyone dressing Melania. She’s representing the United States.”
