Michelle Obama Wears AAS Alum Tanya Taylor
First lady Michelle Obama wore a customized green stretch jacquard sleeveless dress by AAS Marketing alum Tanya Taylor, last Thursday, while meeting Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his wife Sophie Grégoire-Trudeau at the White House.
Mrs. Obama first wore one of her dresses about 18 months ago. “Organically, she wore a dress of ours, then I showed appreciation with a thank-you note and we kind of developed a bit of a relationship from there,” Taylor said. That alliance led her to be included in the celebration of design event that Michelle Obama hosted at the White House last year.
Thus far, Obama has worn Tanya Taylor designs nine times. And the brand is truly proud of having her as one of the champions wearing the pieces. Having launched e-commerce (www.tanyataylor.com), Taylor said styles in prints that are similar to ones worn by Mrs. Obama are “definitely more popular.”
