Throughout history, designers have used fashion to make political statements. Karl Lagerfeld staged a feminist protest for the 2014 Chanel show at Paris Fashion Week. Katherine Hamnet famously met Margaret Thatcher in a protest T-shirt, while Vivienne Westwood and Pyer Moss made bold statements through clothing on climate change and police brutality, respectively. This past election cycle alone, prominent members of the fashion community literally wore political support on their sleeves.  

It appears, however, that Tommy Hilfiger doesn’t believe that designers should even get “political.” At least when it comes to dressing Melania Trump.
