SHOP: Runway to Change

SHOP: Runway to Change all indie

I live about 5 miles outside of D.C. They started closing and detouring streets weeks ago. Everyone I know in the city is excited for the Inauguration, but wants out for the four-day weekend. And everyone else is trying to make a buck off Obama’s likeness. I don’t know if this is just a D.C.-area thing, but even our chain grocery stores each have an aisle of Obama merchandise snuggled next to the Valentine’s Day stuff.

A more organized effort to sell Obama stuff and support the campaign has been released, though. A collaboration with the Presidential Inaugural Committee, the Runway for Change Inaugural Collection features T-shirts and accessories from mainstream design houses like Tory Burch, Vera Wang, and Isaac Mizrahi; indie designers like Alexander Wang, Lutz & Patmos; and even celebrity designers like Jay-Z and Beyonce.

Several of the products are made from organic cotton and/or dyes, and proceeds from collection will go toward the $45 million projected cost of the inauguration ceremony.

If you’re in the District, you can nab some piece at the temporary Presidential Inaugural Store, at 625 E Street NW, or from the online store.
