Designer Andre Soriano, who immigrated to the U.S. from the Philippines, is a big fan of the new president.
The designer behind Joy Villa’s pro-Trump, “Make America Great Again” Grammys gown, Filipino
immigrant Andre Soriano, tells THR that he is supportive of the new president despite his controversial immigration ban, and that the message of the dress was one of positivity.
“There are a lot of people that are in power that really misconstrued what this country stands for,” he said. “I love this country. I’m from the Philippine islands, I am a proud American. I really love this country. I am a minority, Joy is black. America is about immigrants.”
