Target collaborated with Missoni, H&M worked with Versace and now the Obama-Biden campaign is teaming up with 22 fashion designers to launch ‘Runway to Win,’ a clothing and accessories project aimed to raise funds for President Obama’s reelection.

WWD describes the partnership:

“The initiative will officially bow Thursday, when an e-commerce site at runwaytowin.com will launch to sell products from participating designers, who include Marc Jacobs, Tory Burch, Diane von Furstenberg, Narciso Rodriguez, Jason Wu, Alexander Wang, Joseph Altuzarra, Rag & Bone, Rachel Roy and Tracy Reese. The designs include T-shirts, tote bags, scarves and wristlets, with all proceeds going to the Obama Victory Fund.”
