Some of the country's top fashion designers have collaborated and launched a campaign to promote and assist Barack Obama in his re-election 2012 campaign.
Coined Runway to Win, the project involves names like Marc Jacobs, Alexander Wang, Joseph Altuzarra, Rachel Roy, Jason Wu, Rag & Bone and Diane von Furstenberg, among others.
We're launching something new, and a little different, over the next few weeks: Runway to Win, a collaboration by some of the country's top fashion designers in support of Obama 2012, mentions the official site for Obama's 2012 campaign.
The site also mentions that in the coming weeks, many Obama-inspired creations by couture designers like Jason Wu and Tracey Reese will be unveiled at an official site for the Runway to Win campaign.
The proceeds from these designs and collections will be sent to the Obama Victory Fund.
According to WWD reports, U.S. Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour has played a pivotal role in drawing the fashion world to support Obama.
Wintour, along with Scarlett Johansson, will reportedly host a major fund-raising event in February 2012 for the campaign.
