Should Designers Offer Clothing To Politicians?
Fashion

Whether your approved of the President being re-elected or not, it’s hard to ignore the Presidential Inauguration, which is days away. Because of this, designers everywhere have been scrambling to dress the first lady and her daughters, but is this right?

It’s common knowledge that designers offer their duds to celebrities to wear to events as a means of advertising themselves and getting their name out there, but should this apply to the first lady? Should we call her a ‘celebrity’?

Technically, the President (along with all over politicians) is not allowed to receive gifts, borrowed or not, from anyone, so shouldn’t this rule pertain to his wife? I’m all for the designers attempting to advertise themselves, they are in fact heads of their own businesses, but I’m not so sure if this practice should be allowed.

What do you think?
