First lady Michelle Obama support local fashion designers once again, this time wearing custom made Brandon Maxwell gown to State Dinner on Tuesday night. FLOTUS and POTUS honored Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong of Singapore and his wife Ho Ching at the State dinner. Maxwell debuted his line at New York Fashion Week last September and already took the fashion world by the storm.
Maxwell wrote on his Instagram " I'm not one to usually speak about politics and I believe in everyone's right to support the candidate of their choice, but tonight is particularly special for me. I spent my first year out of college campaigning on a bus for Barack Obama during the 2008 election. I believed fully in what he stood for, as I still do today. Mrs. Obama was always, and still is, the the definition of grace and intelligence to me, and I am so blessed and thankful to have had the opportunity to dress her during her time in The White House, and grateful for the good people that have helped me arrive at this moment in my life. ❤️"
A very proud moment. The First Lady of The United States wears custom Brandon Maxwell to tonight's State Dinner. It has been an incredible honor for me and my team to create this dress for the First Lady. Strong and elegant, she is the embodiment of the woman that inspires me to create, and a role model for women all over the globe. I am very thankful for this opportunity. ❤️
