WASHINGTON, DC (WUSA)– Oh My GOFF! Angie Goff on Isabel Toldeo of First Lady fashion fame, named Designer of the Year.

The designer made famous by Michelle Obama was honored by Marymount University at the college’s Portfolio in Motion ‘All Doll’d Up’ show. Virtually unknown before fashion risk-taker Obama chose her to design an Inauguration Day ensemble, Isabel Toledo was named ‘Designer of the Year.’ She praised the young designers presenting their collections that night for their use of textured fabrics and creativity. She also urged them to stay inspired and true to their art, “and success will find you.”  Past recipients of the award include Michael Kors and Oscar de la Renta. Photo above by Moshe Zusman.
