OK, I guess if you go into business and decide that your clientele is going to be exclusively midgets wearing strap-ons. Then you ought to be able to do that, and if someday, one of your clientele comes in with the Pope, you ought to be able to say, "I am sorry, but you are not a midget wearing a strap-on. Please leave because we don't serve your kind here." to the Pontiff. He clearly isn't part of your clientele.

The question is ... would you?


Youre a sick, sick kitty-cat.

Well I had to come up with an example clientele that would likely pass muster with most denizens as something not related to most of the hot button groups du jour.

does suck for the designer. In a year or so when Trump is killing it and more heafty portions of crow are served she will be one first lady short of a model for her ugly ass clothing no one will remember.

Melania can just wear her own clothing which will probably sell more, since we all know certain types of women boycotting it never actually wore it, OR COULD.

Melanie is a gorgeous woman who dresses beautifully and with class. I doubt very much she would even want Sophie's designs.

You don't know what you're talking about. Businesses have the right to refuse service to anyone for any or no reason, as long as that reason isn't race, religion, sex or disability, and to some degree, sexual orientation.

The designer is using her 1st Amendment right to protest Trump's rhetoric by refusing 1st Lady Melania Trump service, even though Melania never asked to be served. It's a public statement of repute.



The first amendment does not protect you from slandering someone.

The 1st Amendment only protects your free speech from government prosecution, fines, imprisonment or punishment, not from the consequences of others.

Trump can use his free speech too, like he did during the election, questionably calling out lots of people and media members he didn't like by name, targeting them maliciously.

Who cares, she can't have them.

Melania will be judged on whether or not her cloths are American made, if they come from Ivanka's knock off line, and a lot of designers won't work with her because there are a lot of people who will boycott them if they do.

Her's will be a tricky spot.

Paste my post where I said she was violating any laws. I didn't say she did violate any laws, she is just a hipocrit like all of us. But like most liberals, she can't and won't admit to it.

me thinks Sophie Theallet flatters herself ,I doubt that melania would be caught dead in anything sophie designs.Melania can afford to dress in designs from the worlds most famous and successful designers.
Melania probably declined sophies offer to design clothes for her so now sophie is all butt hurt and is saying she would never design clothes for melania.
blah, who cares? seriously did anyone even know that someone named sophie theallet designed michelle obamas clothes?

What makes her a hypocrite? Is everyone that is offended, takes a stand and speaks out against Trump's own words, actions and campaign promises is a hypocrite?

Personally I admire and respect what's she's done, and I hope she gets tons of orders from liberal women. She dressed Michelle Obama, who is a role model. Melania Trump is not, she's trophy and a spectacle. Melania will dress accordingly. Many women will boycott any designer who dresses her.

Michelle is way too fond of wearing wide belts that sort of eat up what waistline she has. It sort of tends to swallow up what figure she has and doesn't work at all well with her silhouette.

I seriously doubt she's going to be flooded with orders from Liberals. The average person can't afford them, so she's just speaking to the wealthy.

Wealthy liberals. Don't be surprised if her business really takes off. Realistically tho, she's more likely to dress girls like Sasha and Malia, Katie Perry and Miley Cyrus, then Melania.

I do believe her public statement was a well thought out promotion, targeting a specific clientele.

Walmart to the rescue, they are not discriminating in any way.
And they are open on Thanksgiving.

Have you seen some of her designs? You'd have to pay me to wear them. LOL! I'm sure Melanie feels the same. As for people protesting against any designer who dresses Melanie...they might as well be children because that is how they would be acting. Melanie will have no problems whatsoever looking gorgeous and classy.

Sophie Theallet's public refusal to dress Melania Trump has nothing to do with fashion. It's political statement. I don't think anyone is concerned that Melania won't be able to keep her Trophy Wife appearance.

Yes, it is a political statement and a childish one at that. In my opinion anyway.
