First Daughters: Fashion Trendsetters

Michelle Obama’s Narciso Rodriguez Spring 2009 dress received a lot of negative feedback from fans and fashion critics online while 10-year-old Malia Obama’s bubble hemmed dress (pictured left) set blips of sales for high-end children’s clothing label, Biscotti Inc.

Sasha on the other hand, was wearing a $72 piece by Gerson & Gerson Inc. under the Iris & Ivy children’s label that sells at retailers like Nordstrom and Dillard’s. Barbara Zeins, president of Gerson & Gerson, will be bringing the style back in a different fabrication to be sold in the spring under the style name, Sasha.

Lately, I think the fashion world has had a way with luring young girls into clothing choices that are too mature for their age and personally, I feel refreshed to see a young girl set a more conservative and traditional example with her wardrobe.
