Designer Sophie Theallet said a mouth full below. She celebrates diversity-individual freedom-and repect for all life styles. But she won't "dress" the new first lady.


Designer Sophie Theallet isn’t a fan of President-elect Donald Trump and has announced she’s refusing to dress the next first lady, Melania Trump.

“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,” Theallet wrote in an open letter she posted to Twitter on Thursday. “The rhetoric of racism, sexism, and xenophobia unleashed by her husband’s presidential campaign are incompatible with the shared values we live by.”


She is currently Dressing Michelle O, but will "dress" not Melania T.



“As an immigrant in this country, I have been blessed with the opportunity to pursue my dreams in the USA,” she added. “Dressing the First Lady Michelle Obama for the past 8 years has been a highlight and an honor. She has contributed to having our name recognized and respected worldwide.”

Sophie Theallet is also calling on other designers to not assist in dressing Melania, I wonder if she was a relatively unknown designer if she would be so picky?


In addition to eliminating herself from the potential list of designers who may dress Trump during her tenure, Theallet is calling on all designers to join the boycott. “Integrity is our only true currency,” she wrote.

Whatever will Melania do. I bet she will be unable to get any clothes at all now.

You know, as someone who celebrates diversity, you would think she would volunteer so that she could put a bug in the first ladies ear. I guess hate Trumps all.

Yup - supports diversity unless you are white or have an opinion that differs from her own.

All hail diversity!

We're all different, so treat us the same, but differently, most of the time, but not always...

Without double standards, she wouldn't have any standards.

Notice that they post their "open letters" to as many people as possible, instead of quietly and respectfully declining. It's more to score political points than anything else.

Meh, Mrs T is hardly going to be struggling to find clothes after this announcement is she?

If the designer is question was a small and little designer, she would be jumping to have the opportunity.

She can afford to have an opinion now.

Sophie Theallet is just of many who are taking a stand by boycotting the Trump's in one way or another.

Money is speech, and sometime silence, refusing to patronize, is the more powerful than words.

It's good that these hateful people are crawling out from under rocks and making themselves known. Millions of people will now know who to boycott. Alt-Left lunatics are a significant minority.

Obviously of a different political view and they are expressing their right to free choice.

Melania will be fine, there will be plenty of right wing fashion designers who will will fit out her First Lady wardrobe.

It's great that you think that way. I agree with you.
Now let's give some support to the bakers that don't want to bake wedding cakes for gays.

Good... Im sure Melania wont be heartbroken seeing how this little trollish bigot dressed Michelle frumpy half the time. Long live tolerance.. and lack of good taste in clothing.

Bigotry and sexism are not political views.

It would be her personal choice if she wasn't calling on all designers to join the boycott.

As a fashion designer, I imagine she must have quite a collection of safety pins.

Well they have my support if I'm honest, but I can also appreciate how the law has been interpreted. Political correctness is dividing us and those bakers and hoteliers are deemed as criminals for having religious beliefs that no longer fit with how society is being directed.
