Celeb Endorsement Fails
Designers Get Michelle Obama's Vote (But Not the Public's)

Although the first lady may be on the top of the charts for fashion-forward thinking, Michelle Obama’s celebrated attire has failed to boost sales for some of her favorite designers. 

Narciso Rodriguez, Maria Cornejo, Thakoon Panichgul, and Peter Soronen are among Michelle Obama’s top designer choices but regardless of her open endorsements, these designers have failed to noticeably benefit from the first lady’s approval. 

Michelle Obama has certainly given these designers more exposure than they could have imagined, but unfortunately for them, this exposure has failed to translate directly into sales. Looks like the first lady is no match for the recession.
