When Michelle Obama stepped out on inauguration day in that yellow Isabel Toledo suit, she set the tone for her fashion style: a blend of high and low that embraces young talent and isn’t afraid to take chances. Since then, she has made Toledo and other young designers into household names and given new credibility to mass-merchant brands such as H&M and J.Crew.
