U.S. first lady Michelle Obama applauds during a session of a Fashion Education Workshop in the East Room of the White House October 8, 2014 in Washington, DC.

*”Is this not cool? I mean, come on, you’re in the White House,” First Lady Michelle Obama told the more than 150 students at the White House Wednesday for the first ever fashion education workshop.

The event was part of the first lady’s “Reach Higher” initiative, where high school students visit the White House to hear about success from those who have already achieved it, reports CBS.

Professionals from the fashion industry shared their artistic inspirations, gave lessons in construction and told stories about what it was like to start a business.

FLOTUS was sporting a dress designed by a student and showed off another.
