Liberals in Fashion Industry Attempt Attack on Trump Women


A fashion designer and a shoe company going after Melania Trump and Ivanka Trump are not making the impact they may have hoped.

Fashion designer Sophia Theallet published an open letter on Twitter Thursday, announcing that that she “will not participate in dressing or associating in any way with the next First Lady” and encouraged her fellow designers to do the same.

There is no report that Melania Trump ever asked Theallet for her services, but nonetheless, the designer claims that “integrity is our only true currency” and said the “rhetoric of racism, sexism and xenophobia unleashed by her husband’s presidential campaign are incompatible with the shared values we live by.”

On the other hand, Theallet states in her letter that “dressing the First Lady Michelle Obama for the past 8 years has been a highlight and an honor.” (If the font is too small, you can click on the letter to read it on Twitter.)

The New York Times published a story last week, surmising that fashion’s “love affair” with Washington may be over, and indicated the Trump woman may not even use the designers’ services.   They noted that the clothes Melania Trump wore on the campaign trail were all items she had purchased “off the rack” and not directly from a designer.

However, the NY Times reported that none of the designers said they would refuse to “dress” Melania Trump for the inauguration if asked, hinting that they may completely ignore their colleague’s call to dump the future First Lady.

In the meantime, just shot themselves in the foot when they announced on Twitter that they had banned Ivanka Trump’s shoes from their product line.    After conservative shoppers responded that they would be boycotting the online shoe store, the company deleted their tweet – but too late – the damage is already done.
