Iconic fashion designer Calvin Klein says he’d dress incoming First Lady Melania Trump.

“Of course I would,” Klein, who donated to Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential bid, said when asked by a TMZ reporter outside the restaurant Catch.

But just as Klein expressed his support for dressing Trump, Christian Siriano, who dressed Trump for the 2010 Met Ball and wavered on the question in the past, firmly said he doesn’t plan to dress her. “At this time, what Melania and her world represents, I just don’t think represents… we don’t share the same values and the same things, as a lot of designers, especially a lot of young gay designers [feel],” Siriano told Bustle. “It’s very hard to support people that don’t support you, which has only been a thing — I’m not supporting anybody who doesn’t support me, so that’s my biggest thing. So we’ll see how the four years go.”

Klein and Siriano are the latest designers to chime in on whether they’ll make clothes for the next First Lady, as the fashion industry overwhelmingly supported Clinton over President-Elect Donald Trump. Sophie Theallet, Tom Ford and Marc Jacobs have placed themselves firmly in the “no” camp, while Tommy Hilfiger, Diane von Furstenberg and Thom Browne, have said that they’ll dress Trump.
