Michelle Obama is scheduled to host this year’s National Design Awards at the White House on September 13th 2011. The event was moved from it’s usual July slot, and is now being held in the middle of New York’s Fashion Week. Although the new date has caused several scheduling conflicts for a few of the fashion designers scheduled to be in attendance, it raises the profile of the event and subsequently, the award itself. “The awards honour the year’s US highest achievers from all areas of design, including interiors, architecture and product design.”
Say what you will; but the ability of the Obama’s to connect with today’s nation on such a cultural level, and in such a stylized manner is tremendous! Barack is friends with Ana Wintour for goodness sake!!!
Without a doubt, this first family is winning!
