Fashion designer claims Sam Brinton wore her stolen clothes

A fashion designer from Houston claimed that disgraced former Department of Energy official Sam Brinton wore the custom-made clothes that she had reported missing from a Washington, DC, airport in 2018.

Asya Khamsin, a Tanzanian fashion designer who has made her own clothing for years, shared the shocking connection in a Monday tweet that has since gone viral.

Khamsin said she found photos of Brinton wearing her custom clothing that she had packed in the missing bag after learning that Brinton had been charged with stealing multiple pieces of luggage from two US airports.

The fashion designer tweeted photos showing some of the clothes she lost and then Brinton — who identifies as nonbinary and uses they/them pronouns — wearing the same outfits.

“I saw the images. Those were my custom designs, which were lost in that bag in 2018,” she told Fox News. “He wore my clothes, which was stolen.”

Fashion designer who lost luggage at airport claims Sam Brinton wore her clothing

A Tanzanian fashion designer has accused President Biden’s former non-binary nuclear waste guru Sam Brinton of wearing her clothes that vanished with her suitcase in 2018.

Asya Khamsin claimed that Brinton has been seen wearing her custom-made outfits on several occasions since her luggage went missing from Washington DC airport.

The fashion guru, based in Houston, shared side by side photos of herself wearing one of her outfits next to a photo that surfaced of Brinton in what she believes is the same one. 

Khamsin reported her luggage missing after it disappeared from the Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport on March 9, but the baggage was never recovered. 

The designer filed a complaint with the Houston Police Department in December, and DailyMail.com has reached out to her for further comment.

She now claims that Brinton must have taken her case after seeing pictures of them in the news amid allegations of stealing suitcases at other airports. 

Khamsin claims that her custom designed clothes are the same that are pictured on Brinton. 

The patterns, though similar, sit differently on Brinton and there has been no proof that the items are the same – and it is unclear if they got them altered.  

Brinton was let go from their Department of Energy (DOE) position after the multiple theft allegations last year. 

Khamsin told Fox News Digital in a recent interview that she recognized her
