French designer Sophie Theallet will never wear the future first lady. It’s Donald Trump’s fault.
In order to be a client of Sophie Theallet you do not just have to pay, you have to comply with certain requirements. It seems that Melania Trump does not meet the ‘minimums’ demanded by the French designer.
Sophie Teallet is one of Michelle Obama’s favorite stylists, and for the past eight years she has used her creations on several occasions. However, the relationship of the stylist with American ladies will stay here, at least for now.
However, it is not Melania’s fault, it’s her husband’s future president Donald Trump.
This refusal to wear the incoming First Lady is no more than a political stand against the “rhetoric of racism, sexism and xenophobia” presented by Trump during the election campaign. In addition to these harsh words, Sophie invited other designers to take a similar approach to her own.
