Obama-inspired swag for 'Runway to Win'

Fashion hearts Obama.

On Monday, we reported that a handful of top designers were joining a movement in support of President Obama's reelection campaign called, Runway to Win.

The effort, which is similar to 2008's Runway to Change, involves 23 top designers who created unique Obama-inspired merchandise to support his campaign.

On Thursday, several pieces were revealed on the website, and made available for pre-order. The products will be shipped on Feb. 7, and all proceeds will go directly to the Obama Victory Fund, a joint fund-raising committee authorized by Obama for America and the Democratic National Committee.

The list of participating designers, all of whom are listed under their real names, includes Marc Jacobs, Proenza Schouler's Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez, Diane von Furstenberg, Jason Wu, Tory Burch, Alexander Wang, Joseph Altuzarra, Tracy Reese, Beyonce and Tina Knowles, Valley Forge-native Tory Burch, and more. The participants have crafted an array of stylish products to show their support- from sweatshirts to wristlets to nail polish, all 100% made in the U.S.A.

Although all designs have not yet been released (waiting on Prabal Gurung and Eddie Borgo, among others), the prices are reasonable, starting at $45 for tees to $95 for a printed scarf by Thakoon.
