WEST SACRAMENTO CA (IFS) -- Tiffany Trump you are all right with us. It's a shame that a fashion magazine for women disrespects you so much. Shame on them. -khs
Tiffany Trump is learning the hard way that buzzwords like “inclusive” only apply to a certain segment of the population: liberals who froth at the mouth anytime her father’s name is uttered.
Before New York Fashion Week kicked off last week, industry website Business of Fashion launched a campaign called Tied Together, which encouraged showgoers to wear white bandannas and designers to incorporate them on runways to unite people in these divisive times. And the activist accessory has caught on.
Plug in #tiedtogether on Instagram and at least 5,000 posts appear. Add that to the endless parade of empowerment T-shirts sent down the runway this week — Christian Siriano’s “People are people,” Creatures of Comfort’s “We are all human beings” and Prabal Gurung’s “Love is love” — and it would appear that the former arbiters of snoot have morphed into the Sisters of Mercy.
“In fashion, visuals often speak louder than words,” wrote Imran Amed, founder and CEO of the Business of Fashion, in a letter. “So join together this Fashion Month to make a simple and singular visual statement: wear a white bandanna as a sign to the world that you believe in the common bonds of humankind — regardless of race, sexuality, gender, or religion.”
But if you’re the apolitical daughter of the president, then take a hike, sister. “This common bond of humankind” doesn’t apply to you.
The militant Kumbaya session went out of style faster than a pair of wedge sneakers when Tiffany Trump walked into the Philipp Plein show Monday night. Her presence sparked what could only be described as a deleted scene from “Mean Girls,” except the players were catty adults, not insecure teenagers eating their own.
Editors began openly tweeting about avoiding sitting next to Trump, a University of Pennsylvania alum, as if she was a filthy bum at the end of a smelly subway car.
Alyssa Vingan Klein, editor-in-chief of Fashionista, tweeted that it was a “s – – tshow” because nobody wanted to go near Trump. “Shocker,” she added.
