When Art Imitates Life


Regardless of your political affiliation, we are going to be voting for a new president of the U.S. on November 4th. I hope by now you've registered to vote and now its time to educate yourself about the candidates & watch the debates to make sure you're making an educated decision!

Fashion designers have all rallied behind Obama, creating shirts in his name or even with his picture on them. This pop art creation made a walk down Jean Charles de Castelbajac's runway in his SS09 collection. It's just amazing to me how the impact of the presidential candidates is as far reaching as the fashion world. Is it taking things too far when you're political views are made evident through your designs?

I'm very interested to see the turnout of the election & whoever wins, I wish them the best!

xoxo, lauren

I really respect and admire your choice to not use this post as an opportunity to persuade your readers to vote for your chosen candidate. It's getting to the point where I almost don't want to visit people's blogs or read a myspace bulletin for fear of having their beliefs shoved down my throat. Thank you for being considerate of that =]

Its amazing how everywhere you look you see something about the presidential elections. I think it is a great thing, making everyone conscious of the elections.

No matter what your political affiliation is, we should all vote!

Just my thoughts!
