Fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger carries a lot of clout. And he’s not buying into the fashion industry’s self-centered refusal to work with the future First Lady, Melania Trump.
According to an interview he gave to Women’s Wear Daily .
“I think Melania is a very beautiful woman, and I think any designer should be proud to dress her,” Hilfiger as a response to French fashion designer Sophie Theallet’s refusal to dress Melania. Hilfiger added, “Ivanka is equally as beautiful and smart, although she wears her own clothes. I don’t think people should become political about it. Everyone was very happy to dress Michelle [Obama] as well. I think they look great in the clothes. You’re not gonna get much more beautiful than Ivanka or Melania.”
Here is Theallet’s original pompous letter…
