Singer Joy Villa turned heads when she arrived at the 2019 Grammy Awards wearing a dress inspired by Donald Trump. The white ball gown featured a brick print, and read “Build the Wall” on the back of its skirt.

Villa accessorized with a spiked headpiece, jewelry seemingly made from metal, and a purse that read “Make America Great Again.” A barbed wire-like structure was also attached to each of the straps on her dress, and was wrapped around her back.

Desi Allinger of Desi Designs Couture created the controversial piece. But, despite criticism that some have sent her way, the designer told INSIDER that she’s proud of the work she created.

Allinger also said that she created the dress with Villa’s vision in mind.

“I am very proud of my work,” Allinger told INSIDER. “I was able to create the vision my client wanted. It’s OK to not agree or like everyone’s work, but what is important is to respect people.”

“DISCLAIMER: The views, thoughts, and opinions expressed by my clients are not necessarily the same as my views, thoughts, and opinions,” Allinger wrote on Instagram. She continued to describe the dress as “a unique, one-of-a-kind piece of art” in her post.

Representatives for Joy Villa did not immediately reply to INSIDER’s request for comment.
