Fashion designer Stefano Gabbana has taken on a lot of criticism for dressing future first lady Melania Trump, who wore one of his designs on New Year’s Eve.
When Gabbana posted a picture thanking her for wearing the dress, critics went insane.
The post has received more than 1,400 comments since Gabanna posted it to Instagram on New Year’s Day.
One commenter brought Gabbana’s sexuality into the conversation when criticizing the designer for dressing the future first lady. “Sad when a gay designer doesn’t care about other groups being repressed.”
Gabbana fired back hard at all his “ignorant critics,” and added “Don’t cal me gay please!! Im a man!!! Who I love its my private life!!!”
Both Tom Ford and Marc Jacobs have decided they won’t dress the next first lady, according to Page Six. Dolce & Gabana, Tommy Hilfiger and Calvin Klein are all in favor of Melania wearing their designs as is the chair of the Council of Fashion Designers of America Diane Von Furstenberg.
