While House Democrats in Washington debate over a corporate tax hike, New York representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was in her hometown wearing a “tax the rich” dress for her first-ever Met Gala appearance on Sept. 13. Brooklyn-based Aurora James, founder of the label Brother Vellies and a winner of the 2015 CDFA/Vogue Fashion Fund, made the dress. On Instagram, Ocasio-Cortez said she was proud to work with James, a “sustainably focused, Black woman immigrant designer” who first started selling her garments at a Brooklyn flea market.
