Michelle Obama's fashion designer refuses to dress Melania Trump

New York-based French fashion designer Sophie Theallet is mixing business with politics by refusing to to dress future first lady Melania Trump because of the political views of her husband, President-elect Donald Trump.
Theallet wrote:
"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," she wrote in an open letter published Thursday.
"The rhetoric of racism, sexism and xenophobia unleashed by her husband's presidential campaign are incompatible with the shared values ​​we live by."
"I am well aware it is not wise to get involved in politics," Theallet added. "That said, as a family-owned company, our bottom line is not just about money."
The letter has prompted a flood of reaction on social media, much of it negative. Theallet, 52, who has worked in the United States for more than fifteen years, is a regular fixture at New York's fashion week.
Current US First Lady Michelle Obama, has been dressed by Theallet several times and Michelle has provided welcome publicity by wearing several of the designer's dresses since 2009.
"She has contributed to having our name recognized and respected worldwide," Theallet wrote of the current first lady. "Her values, actions and grace have always resonated deeply within me."

Ivanka Trump can dress her,she does not need that woman to dress her. Melania is a very beautiful woman that will look good in anything she wears.She was a former model,so she can dress herself. The same people who call Trump a hateful person,have more hate in them than the Trump they all hate. Melania is a billionaires wife who already know what to wear when she is going to an occasion with her husband,so she does not need that woman to dress her.
