STYLE ALERT: Sophie Théallet

obama_blog3

Gracias to the ladies over at Mrs-O.org for alerting us to the work — and wisdom — of French-born/US-based fashion designer Sophie Théallet.

Not only is the former Alaia right-hand a favorite of Mrs. O herself — in one of Théallet’s designs at today’s Sojourner Truth celebratory event — but Théallet totally bucked fashion industry fascism and presented her last collection on black models only.

Right on!

We salute this Gallic gem and are exciting to learn more about both her talent and commitment to sartorial justice.
