Why the inaugural looks of Kamala Harris and Jill Biden matter?

The inaugural ball has historically been a moment when fashion has occupied a special place, but as with absolutely any field at times like this one, this one will be completely different. Solemnity will be the main protagonist of this event, and although it is usual for American designers to strive to be chosen ones on a historic date, this time they have advocated avoiding making statements about it. 

For their part, the Jill Biden and Kamala Harris team has clarified that they do not want to give a message related to fashion. However, as much as they do not want fashion to be present, the fact that Lady Gaga and Jennifer Lopez are some of the artists in charge of putting music to the event with their performances makes it impossible for the designs not to be essential on such an important date.

Ralph Lauren is the betting favorite when it comes to dressing the president, but although Jill Biden has opted for the brand on more than one occasion, everything indicates that she will opt for another firm. When it comes to dressing Kamala and Jill, the brands Gabriela Hearst, Carolina Herrera, Donald Deal, Christian Siriano, Prabal Gurung, LaQuan Smith, Oscar de la Renta and Brandon Maxwell are the favorites, while to dress their companions, names like Joseph Altuzarra, Vera Wang and Tory Burch are some of the most repeated.

Is this the time to talk about fashion?

The fact that there is not going to be an inaugural ball in style, however, should not be a stain on the history of fashion. At least that’s what trend expert Sharon Graubard has made known to ‘Spectrum News’. “I think Kamala is already a fashion icon. She shows herself as a real woman. She wears her Converse and her striped suits. I think she will influence women when it comes to dressing by choosing practical, real and stylish clothes” But is a time as complicated as this the ideal one to talk about fashion? Given that, after finance, the fashion industry is the most important sector in New York, yes.

It is not just about what brand the most relevant women in international politics will wear, but about the thousands of jobs that are behind the fashion choices they make. While the sleek, modern looks of the Kennedys perfectly reflected the hallmarks of the baby boomers generation, Jackie’s look suddenly became something of an unwritten style manual for first ladies. Matching accessories, one-color looks and timeless designs were established as unofficial bases that were outlined by Jackie Kennedy.

The fact that Michelle Obama bet on Isabel Toledo, a Cuban-American designer little known at that time, and did not resort to a ‘mainstream’ brand, laid the foundations for the path she was going to travel. When she chose a Thom Browne coat and a J Crew belt four years later, she made it clear that her husband’s politics were perfectly reflected in her wardrobe, which advocated a nod of closeness to citizenship. While many believe that Oscar de la Renta or Christian Siriano will be the firms of choice for Jill Biden, others hope that she will follow Michelle’s trail and bet on an emerging brand.

On the other hand, experts believe Kamala will undoubtedly opt for a black designer. “The message is that the American fashion industry is immense and gives work to many people. It is an inclusive and diverse industry. I think we have a government that will bet precisely on highlighting that,” says Carmela Spinelli, a fashion historian at Savannah College of Art Design, to the Sourcing Journal. We’ll know soon enough if who is right.
