NYFW: Studio visit with Sophie Theallet

Sophie Theallet is having a moment — she's dressed the arbiter of style, U.S. First Lady Michelle Obama, and is up for the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund award.



Sophie Theallet is having a moment. Not only is she a finalist for the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund award, but the former right-hand woman to Azzedine Alaïa has also gained entry into the hallowed group of Michelle Obama's favourite designers. The First Lady has worn Sophie's timelessly romantic, brightly coloured dresses three times in the past six months (most recently on a trip to Martha's Vineyard this week). I visited Sophie's work studio/home in Brooklyn last month to chat about her upcoming spring 2010 collection and the influence of MObama.
