Her dad’s on the 2020 campaign trail, but Ashley Blazer Biden is blazing a trail in the fashion world, designing a new set of uniforms for a luxury hotel in downtown Washington.

The 38-year-old daughter of former Vice President Joe Biden revealed her new designs for the Hamilton Hotel on Tuesday.

The front desk staff will don blazers featuring a distinct touch of the nation’s capital inside: a map of D.C. will line their outfits. The hotel says all the outfits will be manufactured in the United States.

Biden, a former executive director at the Delaware Center for Justice, launched her own “socially and ethically conscious” apparel company, Livelihood, in 2017. Biden said when she founded the line that all proceeds from sales would be donated to local nonprofit organizations.

Biden said in a statement that she’s “excited” to bring her love of fashion to the hotel.

“With my middle name of Blazer, I was destined for this collaboration, and I can’t wait to see Hamilton’s associates looking and feeling stylish,” Biden said.

Hamilton Hotel managing director Mark Driscoll said in a statement that Biden “brings not only a sense of fashion and flair to our hotel, but the important value of public service that is in her DNA and engrained in our nation’s capital.”

It’s not the first time that Hamilton Hotel has made some buzz mixing politics and hospitality. Earlier this year, the hotel unveiled its “Veep Suite,” inspired by the former HBO political satire starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus.
