There is evidence our fashionista First Lady might be starting her own economic stimulus for the fashion industry.
It’s a new clothing line made in the USA (of course) called Disaster Chic. It goes like this:
Whenever there is a disaster — man-made, terrorist, natural, or economic, millions of dresses would be manufactured to look like the crisis so women everywhere can wear support for the victims. It is estimated that Disaster Chic could create as many private sector jobs as the $800 billion stimulus package, which was about 100 at last count.
This new economic stimulus initiative all stems from the dress worn by the “Oil Slick Chick,” formally known as The First Lady of the United States. For on July 12, the First Lady visited Panama City Beach, Florida to show support and empathy for the residents, whose way of life has been severely impacted by the BP oil spill. And what shows support more than a dress displaying a black oil blotch pattern on a white sheath? This is just so Jackie O.
But one just has to ask; did Michelle call up one of her favorite designers and have this dress specially made for her visit to the oil stained beaches, or did she just happen to have this little black blotched dress hanging in her closet and decided it would be the perfect costume for the day’s schedule?
The people of the Gulf want to know.
