Fashion for a Cause


Today is the inauguration of Barack Obama, the 44th President of the USA and the fashion industry has done its best to support.

The Runway to Change initiative, launched during Obama’s campaign, features special merchandise by more than 25 American designers to benefit the campaign. The new collectible pieces include a tote bag by Diane von Furstenberg; T-shirts by Zac Posen, Narciso Rodriguez, Derek Lam, Rachel Roy and House of Deréon. Proceeds from the sale of the items will support the costs of the inauguration.
