You must be thinking what does Fashion and Politics have to do with one another? Everything, especially this year. Several designers have shown their political allegiance in their fashion shows and through some designs to Obama: Tracey Reese, DVF, Marc Jacobs and Derek Lam are just a few designers. Donatella Versace said she was inspired by the type of man Barack Obama represents and dedicated her Spring 2009 Men’s Collection to him.
My message this week is short and to the point. Please go out and Vote! I can’t believe that it is less than 24hrs till we vote for our next President. Its a historic moment and I wouldn’t miss it for the world, you shouldn’t either. A few quick notes: do not wear any campaign paraphernalia to polling sites, bring proper identification with you, remember polls open as early as 6 a.m., and if you are denied the right to vote please contact 1-866-OUR-VOTE.
On a sad note my condolences go out to Barack Obama and his family. He lost his grandmother on the eve of the election. It has to be bitter sweet to be at the pinnacle of your success and have the last member of his extended family pass away. Keep him in your prayers.
Rock The Vote People! Obama, Obama, Obama….
