From Hollywood Reporter: New York-based, French-born designer Sophie Theallet is taking a stand against President-elect Donald Trump by refusing to dress his wife, future first lady Melania Trump.

In an open letter tweeted on Thursday afternoon, the designer wrote, “I will not participate in dressing or associating in any way with the next First Lady.” She added, “I encourage my fellow designers to do the same.”

The designer, who called dressing current first lady Michelle Obama “a highlight and an honor,” went on to describe her experience as an immigrant to the U.S. and how Trump’s rhetoric of “racism, sexism and xenophobia” forced her to take a stand “against discrimination and prejudice.”

“I am well aware it is not wise to get involved with politics,” she said. “That said, as a family-owned company, our bottom line is not just about the money. We value our artistic freedom and always humbly seek to contribute to a more humane, conscious and ethical way to create in this world.

Theallet launched her eponymous label in 2007, one year before President Barack Obama took office. In 2009, she was the winner of the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Award, and has since found celebrity fans in Neve Campbell, Shailene Woodley and Gabrielle Union. However, Michelle Obama remains one of her biggest supporters, having worn the designer’s clothes on several occasions over the past eight years.

  • From the looks of it her designs are hideous anyway.

    • I think her designs portray a “welcome to America… we make our clothes out of pillow cases” kinda feeling that rarely comes from the French quarter.
