Vice President Kamala Harris made waves in a chic purple ensemble and wore pieces from two Black designers, NBC News reported. One-piece was from Christopher John Rogers, a young designer from Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The second piece from Sergio Hudson, a South Carolina and Columbia native.
Former First Lady Michelle Obama also sported a Sergio Hudson purple pantsuit design. The purple, several fashion experts have noted, is a nod to the women’s suffrage movement and their purpose-driven ideals.
The blue color choice in clothing for the First Lady and President are said to represent “trust, confidence, and stability.”
