Special Occasion Dresses and Mother of the Bride Dresses Made in the USA: JSS Knitwear at Blake and Company NYC

Special occasion dresses are a matter of personal taste.  Mother of the bride dresses should fit a woman’s personal style.  One of the biggest names in fashion, Oscar de la Renta recently made news when he questioned First Lady Michelle Obama’s decision to wear a dress by a British designer to a state dinner in honor of Chinese President Hu Jintao.

JSS Knitwear Special Occasion Dress USABorn in the Dominican Republic, de la Renta’s gowns are made in the United States.

When it comes down to it, de la Renta might have a point since the purpose of the visit was to promote American-Chinese trade.  There are plenty of American special occasion dress designers that Mrs. Obama could have selected.  Among the top special occasion dress designers that are made in the USA is JSS Knitwear.

JSS Knitwear offers a wide selection of special occasion dresses and outfits that can be worn day into evening.  JSS Knitwear features knit separates, suits and special occasion dresses. The clothes in JSS Knitwear’s line fit great for all sizes.  JSS Knitwear offers both missy and plus sizes as well.  JSS Knitwear has a variety of colors available and the entire line is made in the USA.

Special occasion dresses are a big industry in this country and de la Renta feels that it would be a good idea for Mrs. Obama to do something to help the special occasion dress industry in America.  De la Renta said “We need to create jobs here, create jobs on Seventh Avenue, too.”

When asked about de la Renta’s comments, Mrs. Obama shrugged it off “Women, wear what you love. That’s all I can say. That’s my motto.”

The truth is that Mrs. Obama has the power to set a fashion agenda, and by wearing a special occasion dress by particular designer, she can create a market demand.  Mrs. Obama has a reputation for being one of the most stylish First Ladies ever to live in the White House.  It may be a good idea for her to wear special occasion dresses that can help the US economy.  By the way, buying good that are made in the USA is a policy initiative pushed by her husband’s administration.
