Melania Won't Be Dressed By This Designer Either

First Lady Melania Trump is going to have a difficult time at lavish government events. It seems more and more designers are refusing to work with the former fashion model. The latest designer to jump on the bandwagon is Christian Siriano.

Siriano initially wouldn't give a straight answer about whether he'd be willing to work with Mrs. Trump. Back in December, after Donald Trump won the election, a number of designers were declaring that they would refuse any requests to dress Melania. When he was asked, Siriano told Access Hollywood at the time, "I think my response is, I’ll let you know... I think I need to see how it goes, I really do. That’s my diplomatic answer.”

Recently, the question was revisited in Time Magazine. The designer had a new answer. “I don’t think I would," he said. "Unfortunately, it really doesn’t have anything to do with her, but she is representing what’s happening politically and what’s happening politically right now is not really good for anyone."

The designer became one of the hottest labels in the fashion industry after winning the fourth season of Bravo's reality show, 'Project Runway'. In 2007, Siriano was the youngest winner and he returned to the show to be a guest judge in later seasons. Almost overnight, Siriano became one of the most well-known designers in the fashion industry.

French designer Sophie Theallet, who had dressed former First Lady Michelle Obama on occasion, was the one who led the charge. After Trump won the election, she printed an open letter on social media stating that she would never dress Melania Trump. She called for other designers to join her in boycotting the Trumps, and many did.
Theallet received criticism for jumping the gun, as she had never been asked to dress Mrs. Trump. It’s unclear if Siriano was ever asked by Melania.

One designer that has openly defended Mrs. Trump is Stefano Gabbana of Dolce & Gabbana. He's praised Mrs. Trump's outfits and has received a lot of criticism for doing so. Gabbana has lashed back at critics by telling them to go to hell.
