NEW YORK — First Lady Michelle Obama rocketed Laura Smalls’ name into the national news by wearing two dresses from the little-known designer during last week’s Democratic National Convention.
Having sold her collection to only three stores for the past year, Smalls is trying to get used to the overnight interest in her life. In a phone interview Monday, Smalls said she was groggy from working until 4 a.m. preparing for her first runway show tonight at the Andaz hotel. The designer said of the 90-person guest list, “There is more press coming because people are like, ‘Who is this person?’”
"I love to fight and I got into a lot of trouble, so instead, I thought I'd do it professionally," says Bellator MMA fighter Liam McGeary. #wwdfashion (📷: @andyboyle; Interview by @jeanpalmieri; Styled by @thealexbadia)
