Who is Peter Soronen? Just ask Michelle Obama!

Who is Peter Soronen and what is he doing with

First Lady Michelle Obama?

Now everybody just take a deep breath and relax-this isn’t going to be a tawdry tell all but an introduction to an up and coming designer. Word on the street ( and the street we are referring too is Pennsylvania Avenue) is that our lovely first lady has plucked designer Peter Soronen from relative obscurity to the national limelight by choosing to wear his beautiful gowns not once but twice for some very important events. Recently the First Lady wore a Peter Soronen gown to the Kennedy Center Honors and in the past donned a gorgeous gown for the Governors Ball. Two for Two-and were only in year one of the administration. ¬†Quite an accomplishment for a designer who started his career in Chicago in the early 90s making vintage corset patterns into wearable dresses. Then in 1998 the wedding and evening gowns he made to order were popular enough that he moved himself and his team to New York City. After that Soronen made his New York runway debut in 2007, and now sells his dresses at Barneys New York, Nordstrom, and obviously has some “freelance” gigs on the side…
