Melania Trump donates her inaugural gown to the Smithsonian

First lady Melania Trump donates her inaugural gown.

First lady Melania Trump's inaugural gown is now a part of American history - enshrined in the Smithsonian's First Ladies Collection of past inaugural frocks.

First lady Melania Trump gave a shout-out to her new hometown Friday, as she participated in a 100-year-old tradition by donating a gown to the Smithsonian.

Herve Pierre had just two weeks to create the stunning gown for Melania Trump.

'I was so pleased with our end result and it is now my hope that this piece is one of the many great beginnings to our family's history here in Washington, D.C.,' she said.

In an interview with Harper's Bazaar, Pierre said Mrs. Trump requested a simple and elegant dress.

According to police, the suspect was captured travelling by bicycle a few kilometres south of where the attacks took place. Police chief Hubertus Andrae said that investigators had ruled out terrorism or religion as a motive for the attack .

Pierre attend the event along with 200 other guests at the National Museum of American History.

Mrs. Trump's gown was added to the exhibit that features 26 dresses, including some worn by Jacqueline Kennedy, Laura Bush and Michelle Obama, along with other items.

Trump, who officially moved to Washington in June, has been growing more comfortable in her first lady role of late, making a solo trip to Canada to cheer Americans participating in an athletic competition for wounded service members and veterans and visiting a West Virginia care centre for babies born dependent on opioids.

And in July, at a private Eiffel Tower dinner with President Donald Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron and his wife, Brigitte, in Paris, Pierre designed a red, white and blue dress with embellishments on the bodice meant to represent wheat.

Shortly after the inauguration, the Smithsonian's conservators begin to work with the White House to ensure the donation process is smooth; they even go so far as to craft a mannequin made to resemble the first lady's physique as closely as possible. "I've designed thousands of dresses, but people will remember this one most particularly", he said.

"It can be a daunting task to choose an outfit that will be mesmerized and become part of our nation's story and forever history", the former model said at ceremony, according to ABC News.
