White House Fashion Designer Disrespects The First Lady In Unforgivable Way

Fashion designer Sophie Theallet made a name for herself during Barack Obama’s two terms in the White House for helping to dress Michelle Obama. Now, she just released a letter arguing that she refuses to work with Melania Trump when she becomes First Lady.
Theallet publicly shared her controversial letter on Twitter.
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,” she wrote.
The rhetoric of racism, sexism, and xenophobia unleashed by her husband’s presidential campaign are incompatible with the shared values we live by,” she concluded. Of course, the irony of the fact that Melania is an immigrant was lost on her.
Theallet also distributed her letter to other fashion designers, demanding that they do the same.
It would be hypocritical to say no to dressing a Trump,” Marcus Wainwright, the co-CEO of Rag & Bone replied. “If we say we are about inclusivity and making American manufacturing great again, then we have to put that before personal political beliefs.”
