Obama in the Box: International Obama Fans Show Their Support on LightInTheBox.com

BEIJING, Jan. 19 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- To celebrate the historical moment of Obama’s official inauguration, LightInTheBox (www.lightinthebox.com ) has launched a special feature on Obama fashion and life-style ( http://tinyurl.com/9cu3g2 ). On January 20th 2009, Barack Obama will be the first African American to become the president of the United States. It will also be the most expensive inauguration to date, says Yahoo! News. The special feature will primarily be about the Obamas’ fashion sense, as well as Barack Obama’s commitment to being a healthy president.

Obama’s fashion sense had already caught attention even before he was elected as the next president. Donatella Versace based her 2009 spring men’s wear idea on Barack Obama. When the Obamas walked down from the Lincoln Memorial yesterday, even the children, Malia and Sasha, received press coverage on what they wore. This goes to show how the Obamas had not only influenced the political world, but the fashion world as well.

“We’ve followed the Obama presidential race from day 1, we love the guy,” Denny, an employee of LightInTheBox says. “We have a diverse group of people working here at LightInTheBox. With everyone showing so much support around the world, we felt like we were obligated to contribute something.” Employees suggested that a special feature on Obama should be made and the company supports the idea a hundred percent. The Obama special feature (http://tinyurl.com/9cu3g2 ) will include fashion wears that are similar to Michelle Obama’s fashion sense, as well as recommended products to help the next president of the United States quit smoking. The feature is not only a show of support, but a type of celebration that hopefully will leave a mark in the Obamas’ legacy in years to come.
