Tom Ford will not design for Melania Trump

Press Trust of India  |  Los Angeles 

Celebrity fashion designer Tom says he will not be designing clothes for Melania Trump as she is not right fit for his image.

Recently designer Sophie Theallet said she would not be outfitting Melania, citing President-elect Donald Trump's "racism, sexism and xenophobia" as the root of her decision, said The Hollywood Reporter.



"She's not necessarily my image. I was asked to dress her quite a few years ago. I declined," said.

The designer, who voted for Hillary Clinton, noted that it wasn't necessarily Melania so much as her position as the first lady that factored into his decision.

"Even had Hillary won, she shouldn't be wearing my clothes. They're too expensive. And I don't mean that in a bad way - they're not artificially expensive, it's the cost to make these things."

When asked if Melania should stay away from expensive pieces, he added, "I'm going to leave that to Melania."

French-born fashion designer Theallet, who has dressed Michelle Obama on many occasions, penned an open letter in November pledging not to dress Melania, and encouraging other fashion designers to join a boycott.
