Tiffany Trump, the youngest daughter of the US president, came out in support of Chinese fashion designer Wang Tao on Saturday.
Along with her mother Marla Maples and boyfriend Ross Mechanic, Trump sat in the front row at the Taoray Wang show for New York Fashion Week.
"She's an amazing designer," Trump said backstage before the show, explaining that she became a fan of Shanghai-based Wang after a show in September.
Last month, she wore a custom-made white, double-breasted Taoray Wang coat to the inauguration of her father Donald Trump as president of the United States.

"The tailoring fits perfectly," Tiffany Trump said of Taoray Wang's lines. "Tao really takes pride in the details - the different designs she does inside the garment, not even on the outside." The show on Saturday was Wang's sixth at New York Fashion Week.
After spending 14 years as creative director of Shanghai womenswear brand Broadcast: Bo, Wang debuted the Taoray Wang label in New York City in fall 2014. She has returned every season since.
Taoray Wang targets "powerful, professional and modern women who want to be stylish, elegant and sexy", the designer said.
Wang plans to open a Taoray Wang retail store in Manhattan this year.
Meanwhile, Trump said she is keen to see the work of more Chinese designers. "I've never been to China, but maybe one of these days, I would love to," she added.
