Obviously, Donald Trump’s presidency is, uh, a little controversial. And so it’s no surprise that fashion designers — who usually love to brag about the First Lady wearing their clothes — have been more than a little hesitant to do so with Melania (a few designers have even refused to dress her at all).
Not all designers feel that way, however. Stefano Gabbana — as in Dolce & Gabbana — is loving all the attention his brand is getting from the First Lady, who chose to wear clothes by the designer in her official portrait and has been wearing a lot of their outfits on the Trump’s official trip to Italy.
Gabbana has taken to Instagram to repost photos of her wearing their clothes. And now, Dolce & Gabbana’s official Instagram account has re-posted those images, becoming the first major fashion brand to publicly share (and celebrate!) Melania wearing its clothes.
Obviously, not everyone is so thrilled about the brand doing this, and Gabbana’s feed is flooded with threats to quit following them. None of this seems to faze him much, however, and he’s started captioning all his images #boycottdolcegabbana.
Only time will tell if anyone who actually buys D&G will boycott the brand — or if their sales will do better than ever.
