Michelle Obama to host fashion designers at White House

Los Angeles: US First Lady Michelle Obama has sent an e-mail invitation to her favourite designers for 'Celebration of Design' at the White House in Washington, DC, next month.

Maria Cornejo, Jimmy Choo and Talbots have got the invite to be a part of the special fashion summit on October 8, reported Us magazine.

Other designers that appear as staples in Obama's closet, who may also have scored an invite to the affair, include J Crew's executive creative director Jenna Lyons, Tracy Reese, and Jason Wu, the man behind her 2009 and 2013 Inaugural Ball dresses.

The fashion summit will come just in time for the Cooper-Hewitt Museum's National Design Week, which runs from October 4 to October 12, a high point of which will be the National Design Awards in New York City on October 9.
