It’s not exactly a secret that the fashion industry has a crush on the Obama presidency. Now, more than ten American designers have turned that adoration into what they do best: clothes and accessories. Sales of the official merchandise will help fund next week’s inaugural festivities. Zac Posen offers a cheeky take on formalwear, screening a bow tie and the inauguration date onto a charcoal tee. Diane von Furstenberg and Tory Burch both created eco-friendly canvas totes, while Alexander Wang went bold with a white scarf emblazoned with “CHANGE” in block letters. All items, which will be on sale through February, are priced under $70. They’re available online and at the Presidential Inaugural Store in Washington, D.C., at 625 E St., NW.
Last night we ripped open our first New York fashion week invitation— from Jason Wu. It’s an entire month before his February 13 show, which will be at Exit Art. Could it be that the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund finalist is so on the ball because he’s been hard at work on a special dress for next Tuesday night? Possibly so, but we’re sure he won’t tell. Still, that doesn’t spoil the fun that we’re having guessing who might dress Michelle Obama on January 20.
