Louis Vuitton's artistic director, Donald Trump, makes a & # 39; joke & # 39; and rejects any association with him after the president visited the new designer brand factory in Texas
- Louis Vuitton's artistic director, Nicolas Ghesquière, destroyed Donald Trump on Instagram on Sunday by writing: & # 39; Standing against any political action & # 39;
- He shared album art for the song High Energy by Evelyn Thomas, which was a prominent hit in gay clubs in the mid-80s
- He added: & # 39; I am a fashion designer who refuses this #trumpisajoke association & # 39;
- His message comes three days after Donald Trump cut the ribbon at the new Louis Vuitton plant in Texas
- Ghesquière is known to be a proponent of a diverse environment at Louis Vuitton that hires trans and queer models
The artistic director of Louis Vuitton threw a spiky shot at Donald Trump after the president appeared at the opening of the new fashion house workplace in the Texas countryside.
Nicolas Ghesquière, artistic director of women's collections, fooled the president on Sunday with an Instagram post where he shared album art for Evelyn Thomas' High Energy song with the caption: & # 39; Against any political action. I am a fashion designer who refuses this #trumpisajoke #homophobia association. & # 39;
The song that Ghesquière placed, High Energy, is a dance song that was prominent in gay clubs in the mid-80s.
His attack comes just three days after Donald Trump attended the Louis Vuitton workshop in Alvarado, Texas, about 40 miles south of Fort Worth, along with LVMH CEO Bernard Arnault and Louis Vuitton CEO Michael Burke.
The artistic director of Louis Vuitton for the Nicolas Ghesquière women's collection wrote on Donald Trump on Instagram on Sunday: & # 39; #trumpisajoke # homophobia & # 39;
He smothered the president with an Instagram post on Sunday where he shared the album art for the song High Energy by Evelyn Thomas – a popular song in gay dance clubs in the 1980s – with the caption: & # 39; Against any political action. I am a fashion designer who refuses this association & # 39;
In the Louis Vuitton factory visit on October 17, the president stumbled upon the pronunciation of the label's name and cut the ribbon to officially open the warehouse.
Ghesquière, who has been working at the historic fashion house since 2013, has, however, taken a big step to distance himself from the position with Trump.
He is simply the newest fashion designer who exposes the president alongside Marc Jacobs, Tom Ford and Philip Lim. A series of designers have gone so far as to promise that they will never dress First Lady Melania.
His moving position received support and praise from the industry, including Louis Vuitton & # 39; s creative director of accessories Camille Miceli, editor-in-chief of Phillip Picardi magazine, makeup artist James Kaliardos, Veronika Heilbrunner, former editor-in-chief Anne-Marie of Elle UK Curtis .
His position was directed against the Trump government's treatment of the gay community.
His attack comes just three days after Donald Trump visited the Louis Vuitton workshop in Alvarado, Texas, about 40 miles south of Fort Worth, along with LVMH CEO Bernard Arnault and Louis Vuitton CEO Michael Burke.

Louis Vuitton did not comment on his message.
Grab Your Wallet, a group that calls on shoppers to boycott companies, told their followers to boycott the designer label.
& # 39; Creating jobs is not an excuse to ignore morally repulsive behavior, & # 39; said Shannon Coulter, one of the founders of the movement Company of fashion earlier this week. "Companies are willing to look the other way to work with the Trump administration, but it's a worrying trend."
Ghesquière has made a name for himself in defending a diverse and inclusive environment in Louis Vuitton, where he cast trans and queer models.
& # 39; It is very inspiring to see that so many gender fluid and queer models are represented and are able to just be themselves, & # 39; he said at work.
He also often works with Teddy Quinlivan, one of the most prominent fashion models in the industry right now. Quinlivan responded to her support in writing Ghesquière: & # 39; Thank you for being on the right side of history. & # 39;
Before joining Louis Vuitton, Ghesquière spent 15 years in Balenciaga, from 1997 to 2013, as artistic director.
