Marchesa, Carolina Herrera, Jason Wu, and More Create Custom Gowns for Saks’ Holiday Windows

Tommy Hilfiger Thinks Designers Should Be Proud to Dress Melania Trump

Saks unveiled its holiday windows this week, and enlisted the talents of Marchesa, Carolina Herrera, Jason Wu, Erdem, and Naeem Khan to create custom gowns.
