Don`t mix fashion with politics: Marc Jacobs

Last Updated: Saturday, July 21, 2012 - 15:59

London: Fashion designer Marc Jacobs, who recently lent support to gay rights and US President Barack Obama`s re-election campaign, says it could be a bad idea to mix fashion and politics.

"I guess with politics and fashion, you`ve always got to be a bit careful because somebody`s going to get offended or somebody`s going to feel it is not right," quoted the 49-year-old as saying.

"I don`t want to sound stupid or ignorant or anything, but I spend my time in the studio choosing fabric and colours and trying to figure out what we`re going to make. If you want to avoid controversy, you just don`t do political things like that," he added.

Marc Jacobs is currently the creative director for luxury brand Louis Vuitton.
