The Marriage of Fashion and Politics

President Obama was in town last night (NYC that is) for a little fundraising dinner hosted by Anna Wintour.  I love this.  I really do.  The whole fashion industry really got behind Obama, designing shirts, reusable tote bags, putting Michelle on the cover of Vogue and creating more eco-friendly clothing.

The dinner cost $30,400 per person and was attended by some of America’s finest, most prominent designers, such as Calvin Klein, Vera Wang, and Donna Karan.

It has also been announced that after much consideration, Chelsea Clinton has decided on a gown designed by Vera Wang to wear during her much anticipated wedding to Marc Mezvinsky.

I actually think fashion and politics have more in common than they would like to admit.  Both have a foundation in money, relationships, who you know and they are both deeply seeded in change.  Fashions change just as much as who is in power.
