Inauguration fashion has always been a subject of interest. What will the first ladies wear? What will the daughters wear? But now you can think about what you’ll wear, even if you’re not invited to the inauguration.
A spate of designers are creating Barack Obama-themed merchandise to celebrate the inauguration, including Tory Burch with the tote seen.
Burch, Zac Posen, Diane von Furstenberg, Donna Karan and Alexander Wang have created merchandise to support the “Runway to Change” initiative launched during Obama’s presidential campaign. Items include a scarf from Wang, an “Obama” emblazoned tote from DVF and an Urban Zen T-shirt printed with “Inspire Change” on it by Donna Karan.
“President-elect Obama is an incredibly inspirational leader. I am so excited to see the direction he and his team will take our country in the coming years, and look forward to supporting them in every way I can,” Tory Burch.
The merchandise is available in the Presidential Inaugural store in Washington, and proceeds from the sales will support the costs of the inauguration which are likely to be high considering the turnout expected.
