Top fashion designers are refusing to dress future First Lady Melania Trump.
These people were okay dressing Michelle Obama, but they draw the line at Melania?
WHAT A JOKE!
Check it out…
A week and a half after Donald Trump officially became America’s new President-Elect, the reverberations of that decisions can still be felt far and wide. Not only from the thousands of protestors taking to the streets in major capitals across our country, but also the surge in charitable activism, involvement in local government, and the daily calls to protest this or that brand based on stances they’ve taken about our future POTUS. But designer Sophie Theallet has flipped the script on those ubiquitous calls to boycott, announcing that instead it is she and her brand who will be boycotting Trump and his wife, Melania, refusing to lend her any of her designs.
This is a bold stance for Theallet, considering the designer has dressed First Lady Michelle Obama in the past, but in her open letter posted to her Twitter account today she made no bones about the fact that she will not be fashion to the incoming FLOTUS. In the letter, the designer writes, “As an independent fashion brand, we consider our voice an expression of our artistic and philosophical ideas. The Sophie Theallet brand stands against all discrimination and prejudice. Our runway shows, ad campaigns, and celebrity dressing have always been a celebration of diversity and a reflection of the world we live in.”
Here’s the statement from Sophie Theallet…
