On Friday, March 12th, from 1-2 p.m. EST, Fashion Group International (FGI) and New York Women in Film & Television (NYWIFT) teamed up to present a virtual panel discussing the “iconic looks from our First Ladies of government.” It covered the role that fashion plays in history, politics, and American culture as a whole.
Not even the chill of mid-January could stop our D.C. ladies from shining in their brightly colored coats at the Inauguration of our 46th President of the United States, Joe Biden. Bundled up in their warm winter gear, masks, and gloves, they communicated through clothing alone. From Dr. Jill Biden to Michelle Obama, here is a guide to all the ceremony’s fabulous looks and what they signify for the presidential term to come.
On a brisk winter’s day in January, the 46th president, Joe Biden, was sworn into office. Standing at his side in turquoise was our new First Lady, Dr. Jill Biden. Her impeccably tailored tweed coat is a Markarian original designed by Alexandra O’Neill, who also created its matching ocean-colored dress. O’Neill founded the luxury womenswear label in 2017 with the idea of combining celestial romanticism and timeless designs that maintain sustainability. Dr. Biden’s ensemble was designed and produced by O’Neill and her team in New York City’s Garment District.
