Michelle Obama's Designer Says She Will Not Design For Melania Trump

President-elect Donald Trump is, well, a controversial figure right now—to say the least. 


After a campaign fueled by divisive rhetoric, the business mogul and his family are facing a sizable backlash, with many people putting their money where their mouth is and boycotting both his businesses and the fashion empire built by Trump's elder daughter, Ivanka Trump.

The latest member of the Trump family to receive a cold shoulder from the fashion industry is future First Lady Melania Trump.

During the campaign, Melania has been largely silent. In contrast to the insanely vocal role Michelle Obama has played in the current administration, so far we haven’t seen the former model do much more than wear pretty dresses and statement-making jumpsuits. But if the recent statement by designer Sophie Theallet—who is responsible for some of Michelle Obama’s best looks is any indication, even that might be difficult to do.

This week, Theallet released a statement saying that she will not dress the future First Lady. And she’s calling on other designers to do the same.


“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,” she wrote in her emailed statement. “I encourage my fellow designers to do the same.”

Her stand presents a quandary for the American design community. Up until now, no one has really been dressing the future First Lady—for the most part, she’s been sticking to European labels and the occasional off-the-rack Ralph Lauren on the campaign trail.

Considering the sizable influence Michelle Obama had on the fashion industry here at home—including her role in helping to catapult designers like Christian Siriano, Jason Wu, Thakoon, and Prabal Gurung to superstardom—a refusal by the fashion world to associate with a First Lady of the United States would mean not only a break from recent tradition, but also potentially an end to so many of those White House fashion moments we’ve come to love.

Americans are long lost descendants of the OBIO AKPOR kingdom. But really no love lost on the Trumps. They represent all that's negating about the white supremacist movement.

Looking for cheap publicity

Silly sore loser.

Mtchew. I have ever never seen any of her dresses that wowed me biko.

Melania's jumpsuits are sooooo on point!
Biko give way let's see something much better! See story. Who told you she was looking for a designer.

Stella,what did Ivanka do BTW?

Sexy Asa said...

Is the designing free of charge. They got nothing on the woman. She no dey see them sef.

Starjoy said...

Abeg make she Park well,are there no other designers

Anonymous said...

Oh please! Some people still live by values u know? Ur mind is obviously poverty stricken to think of jumping on any moving train. Yes Melania might not need her and she's obviously making it clear to Melania dat she doesn't need her either.

I've read through the comments and I have to say I am utterly dissapointed by the level of unintelligent responses by so many of the so called bvs.

This designer said she would not dress the incoming first lady Melania Trump based on the things her husband said before the election which hurt a lot of people. The designer is standing by long held liberal values which are the cornerstone of civilization. Without those values, we here in Africa may still be under the rule of the British and you won't have many of the freedoms and opportunities you take for granted today. Trump is trying to reverse all that and the best some of you could say is to ridicule her stand. No wonder Professor Soyinka recently called some of you a bunch of nattering nit-wits. Basic common sense una no get. All you do is chat about meaningless stuff. When it is a serious subject, you lack the intelligence to comprehend.
