There is no doubt we live in strange times; impossible events seem to be the norm. Brexit has been followed by a presidential victory for Donald Trump; Europe is showing signs of cracking under the strain and no one is sure of what will happen next.
Now, even fashion designers; usually a law unto themselves are faced with a political, moral and even commercial dilemma: Do they dare risk dressing the next First Lady?
Michelle Obama is proof that it is possible to get it very right and very wrong. This is hardly surprising; everyone makes a mistake on occasion. Although, being married to the most powerful man in the world and have fashion designers desperate to dress you would certainly help most of us to get it right!
