Tommy Hilfiger to Change Ad Campaign

September 29, 1998|Associated Press

A Tommy Hilfiger ad campaign that includes a picture of a model sitting on a desk in the Oval Office will be changed to remove any reference to the White House, the designer said. In a letter to the designer, the White House legal office asked that the ads be changed because of a long-standing policy that the White House not be used for advertising purposes. The request was not prompted by the controversy surrounding President Clinton's relationship with Monica Lewinsky, White House spokeswoman Amy Weiss said. The ads, previewing the designer's fashion fall line, began appearing in the September issues of some magazines, including Vanity Fair, Glamour, Harper's Bazaar, GQ and Forbes. A spokeswoman for the Tommy Hilfiger company said the campaign was not intended to be a political statement.
