Designer who’s dressed Michelle Obama refuses to work with Melania Trump
And she’s asking other designers to do the same.
Michelle Obama will go down in history as many things, including one of the most fashionable First Ladies. And now, one of the designers responsible for that image is refusing to dress Melania Trump.
Sophie Theallet, who has designed for Obama over her eight years in the White House, released a statement saying that her brand “stands against all discrimination and prejudice,” and that, as a result, she will “not participate in dressing or associating in any way with the next First Lady.” She’s also encouraging other designers to do the same.
Trump’s election has sent waves through the design world. Calls to boycott both his and Ivanka Trump’s clothing lines have resulted in Shoes.com and furniture company Bellacor removing their products, and could lead to more retailers making the cut.
On the other hand, Ivanka Trump has been using her family’s success to promote her own fashion line. So if Melania needs to get dressed, she can always call Ivanka.
