Barack Obama's version of Project Runway

Obama’s campaign has arranged for twenty fashion designers to create clothing and bags to sell on the campaign’s website starting next month.

With a Project Runway feel, Obama’s camp gave designers one week to come up with a sketch for the campaign to approve, and present a sample. With no rules on pricing, designers were allowed to use Barack’s image and his rising-sun logo in their design.

Fab designers Diane Von Furstenberg and Issac Mizrahi designed tote bags, while Derek Lam designed a cotton muslin bag with a carnation print from his spring 2004 collection. My girl, Tracy Reese made a shirt and Charles Nolan made a wrap T-shirt.

There is also speculation that Vera Wang, Russell Simmons, and Beyonce are also designing items for Obama! How fabulous! Voting for change with style!
