“I don’t have a problem dressing the first lady of this country, whoever she is,” Herrera told Reuters.
At the Fall 2017 collection, fashion designer Carolina Herrera is used to dress first ladies ranging from Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis to Michelle Obama.
She carried on stating: “I think it’s out of respect for the United States.”
Besides she made first daughter Ivanka Trump’s inaugural ball gown, and on Monday said she would happily dress the U.S. first lady.
Since Trump election, the fashion world has been divided on the issue after some couturiers including Tom Ford and Sophie Theallet expressed they would not work with Trump family.
The new Fall 2017 collection was attended by actresses Emmy Rossum and Christina Ricci and socialite Nicky Hilton Rothschild. Models including Bella Hadid strutted the runway with their hair pulled back sleekly. Outfits mixing white cotton shirts with black leather kicked off the show.
Evening and day looks were created in burgundy and pale pink and according to Herrera “It’s a collection with very simple silhouettes without any effort, very feminine.”
