Melania and Ivanka may have been dressed by the designer Zac Posen but he has zero plans to do so anymore. “I have no plans to dress the members of the first family,” the 36-year-old couture designer told to The Daily Beast.
“Right now, I’m staying away from bringing my brand into politics. There are issues that are being questioned that are fundamentally upsetting to me — deeply: LGBT rights, immigration, funding for the arts, Planned Parenthood and women’s rights. These are just issues that are very close to my heart, and I use my own private voice and funds to fight them and in support of them. I think it’s important to use your voice. I think that every brand and person has a right to be vocal,” ” he told to The Daily Beast.
He also added that there is much more held by the future despite the current administration.
“I’m very upset with the state of affairs right now. I always try to be optimistic. I think that freedom will prevail. And I don’t dictate who buys my clothing in a store.”
According to FoxNews:
Posen also revealed that the fashion industry should be “cautious” in how it advocates for current issues.
“I aim to be about powerful women in my clothing,” he said. “It’s important that I support the amazing women that I’m able to work with. It’s a message about creativity and process. And being able to self-create is the message I want to share to the generation of young people being born now.”
The previous First Lady, Michelle Obama, was also dressed by by Posen and his other deress-dos include Rihanna, Kim Kardashian West, Gwyneth Paltrow and Naomi Watts.
Besides Posen, there are other big names who have declared they wont dress any of the Trump family. They include Marc Jacobs, Christian Siriano, Joseph Altuzarra, Derek Lam, Humberto Leon, Sophie Theallet and Tom Ford. They all have said they’d not be dressing the First Family.
It should be noted that Ralph Lauren’s stock priced had hiked quite dramatically after the First Lady Melania Trump was dressed by him for the inauguration.
