#TBT Meeting Michelle Obama at the White House Celebration of Design Reception

TBT White House Graphic

I discussed the event more in a piece a wrote for Lucky magazine. It was such an honor to be apart of the Celebration of Design Workshop and Reception. The room was filled with the most influential people in fashion, from Anna Wintour to Diane Von Furstenberg to Jenna Lyons. Our industry gets a lot of flack for the frivolousness and cattiness but I can honestly say there was an abundance of admiration, love and respect in that room.

A few days after the event, I woke up to several messages and emails about this photo. Unfortunately, Oscar de la Renta died and this was the only time Michelle Obama wore de La Renta. The image went viral.

My First Lady is beautiful and inspiring. @michelleobama @reachhigher2020 @thewhitehouse #FashionEDU
