French Designer Sophie Theallet Refuses to Dress Melania Trump

The same designer that dressed FLOTUS, wants nothing to do with the Trump administration 


Throughout her time as First Lady, Michelle Obama has made a lasting impact. Whether it's her fearless desire to "Bring Back Our Girls" or advocate for better nutrition, her efforts have never gone unnoticed. But despite all her amazing efforts, her elegant, stylish and fashion forward style is also quite spectacular.

Michelle Obama's great looks over the last eight years are credited to one French designer: Sophie Theallet. Just this week, she announced that she intends on avoiding any association with Melania Trump, the future FLOTUS. Theallet who has dressed the current First Lady on a variety of occasions, wrote in a letter she posted to Twitter saying that her values are not in tow with Trump and his wife.

Theallet, who identifies herself as an immigrant, went on to say, "As one who celebrates and strives for diversity, individual freedom, and respect for all lifestyles, I will not participate in dressing or associating in any way with the next first lady. The rhetoric of racism, sexism, and xenophobia unleashed by her husband's presidential campaign are incompatible with the shared values we live by."




Since the world found out who would become the nation's next president, it is left to wonder what impact (if any) Donald Trump will have on the fashion industry. It is also interesting to see whether not brands and designers alike will want to partake in doing business with Trump or follow Theallet's lead and do the right thing. But nonetheless, one thing is for; Theallet is hoping that other designers follow her lead.

Let's hope that other designers follow suit.

It's Freeing To Simply Just Be.


Love this, Share It!



Let me describe us as women. As women and women of culture at that; we are vivacious, adventurous, creative, and liberated souls. We are the cream of the crop, inspired by the winds that blow, free to come and go and move as we please. As women we are looked at in a way that can’t be interpreted with words alone. We inspire different beings, arts, and genera. Being a women of culture symbolizes strength and freedom and this, this sense of womanhood has allowed us to just be.
