Going into her second week as first lady of the United States, Melania Trump has begun the process of filling out her White House staff.
Her first official hire is Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, who will be named senior adviser to the first lady.
Wolkoff is the owner of SWW Creative, a New York City fashion consulting firm that describes itself as an agency that provides “creative collaboration within the spheres of fashion, beauty and entertainment.”
The first lady and Wolkoff have known each other for almost two decades and have been friends for many of those years.
Wolkoff’s credentials were put to the test during the inauguration when she learned that several designers refused to provide outfits for the inaugural events. Being a professional, Wolkoff was able to ensure the first lady was elegantly dressed for each occasion.
As an official member of the White House staff, her duties will also include providing advice to the first lady on subsequent hiring.
While announcing her pick for senior adviser is a start, Trump still has other positions which need to be filled, such as her chief of staff, communications director and social secretary.
Wolkoff, 46, graduated from Loyola University in New Orleans with a communication’s degree.
Following graduation, she went into the field of fashion, where she advanced to become the fashion director at Lincoln Center and eventually the owner of SWW Creative.
She is also a former event planner for Vogue magazine.
The first lady has said she will remain in New York while her son is still in school.
Wolkoff has confirmed she will commute from New York to Washington instead of relocating.
