Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) received an onslaught of criticism for attending the swanky Met Gala wearing a “Tax the Rich” dress. As it turns out, the millionaire designer who created it is in debt to the IRS.
According to the New York Post, designer Aurora James, founder of the fashion brand Brother Vellies, “is a notorious tax deadbeat with unpaid debts dogging her in multiple states.”
The article goes on to state the following:
For instance, through 2018 and 2019, Cultural Brokerage Agency – the parent company for Brother Vellies – failed to withhold “income taxes from employees’ paychecks totaling $14,798,” according to the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance. Since 2015, the company has been hit with 15 debt warrants, all of which occurred prior to the pandemic when the company garnered $41,666 in relief aid.
David Cenedella, a Baruch College taxation lecturer, told The Post, “Just because they take it out of your paycheck doesn’t mean they’re sending it to the government. It’s certainly not something you want. I would not say your average business out there has this. Something went wrong.”
Ocasio-Cortez previously tweeted about the designer saying, “’Proud to work with @aurorajames as a sustainably focused, Black woman immigrant designer who went from starting her dream @brothervellies at a flea market in Brooklyn to winning the @cfda against all — and then work together to kick open the doors at the Met.'”
