YES WE CAN! - A Moment in History

Today is a day that will go down in history.

At noon today, Barack Hussein Obama II will be sworn in as the 44th president of the United States of America and will become the 1st ever African American President.

We, at Montreal Fashion Minds, would like to congratulate the new president and his supporters in this momentous occasion.

Barack Obama is indeed, an extremely powerful and influential man on today society. His greatness has not only inspired his country, as well as people around the globe, but Obama has additionally, made a great impact on the world’s fashion scene.
