Fashionably lame: Designer Diane Von Fürstenburg doesn’t want Republican patrons

Last Thursday night at her store in New York’s Meatpacking District, the fashionista had this to say:

“Everyone here better be a Democrat; no Republicans!”

She apparently then left to go watch President Obama’s snoozer of a DNC speech.

How gauche.

Poor Diane must’ve sewed her brain shut by mistake. Despite what the lapdog media and well-known Julias would have people believe, conservative and Republican women do exist, and they have a voice. Conservative women (and the men who love them) are using their voices now to hit back at Von Fürstenburg:

It eventually occurred to Von Fürstenburg that her remarks may have wound up alienating half of her customer base, and she tried to walk back her statement:

Too little, too late. We’re not buying what she’s selling. She’d better get used to that.
