Early life

Melanija Knavs was born in Novo Mesto in the southeast of Slovenia, which was then part of Yugoslavia,[5][6] on April 26, 1970.[7] She is a daughter of Amalija (née Ulčnik) and Viktor Knavs, who managed car and motorcycle dealerships for a state-owned vehicle manufacturer.[8][9] Her father was from the nearby town of Radeče.[8] Her mother came from the village of Raka,[10] and was a patternmaker at the children’s clothing manufacturer “Jutranjka” in Sevnica.[8][11] When later working as a model, she changed the Slovene form of her last name Knavs to the German Knauss.[12]

She grew up in a modest apartment in a housing block in Sevnica, in Slovenia’s Lower Sava Valley.[1] She has a sister[13] and an elder half-brother, whom she reportedly has never met,[14] from her father’s previous relationship.[8][15]

When she was a teenager, the family moved to a two-story house in Sevnica,[16] and as a high school student, she lived in a high-rise apartment in Ljubljana. Melanija attended the Secondary School of Design and Photography in Ljubljana,[17] and studied at the University of Ljubljana for one year before dropping out.[18][19][20] She declares speaking English, French, Italian, and German,[21] in addition to Serbo-Croatian and her native Slovene.[22

The First Lady Fashionista

US First Lady Melania Trump’s wardrobe has been the centre of discussions ever since her husband, Donald Trump was sworn in as the President of USA. Be it her sky blue, double-faced cashmere jacket from Ralph Lauren or the more recent black, sequined suit by Michael Kors, she continues to set fashion goals.

On her 47th birthday today, we raise a toast to her sartorial choices. Our fashion frat, too, gives Melania’s style a thumbs up. “She is one of the most stunning First Ladies ever around the world. She has been wearing her clothes quite well. The way she dresses up reminds me of the powerful Robin Wright from the House of Cards. Melania’s style is pretty cool,” says designer Nikhil Mehra. On being asked how he would like to dress her up, Mehra says, “I’d make a bandhgala, but in a more feminine manner, with well-fitted, slim-cut trousers. The bandhgala would have interesting coin buttons. I might even put a slight drape just to layer it.”
