The clothing industry’s top 22 designers favored by the nation’s first lady of fashion, Michelle Obama, are coming together to help the Obama-Biden campaign raise money and put a unique look on the 2012 effort.

Called “Runway to Win,” the “special pieces” that will be unveiled this week on the campaign’s site will be from designers like Jason Wu, who drew up the first lady’s eye-popping ivory-colored 2009 Inauguration gown, and Tory Burch, whose $495 leather and chain boots the first lady wore picking pumpkins right before Halloween 2010.

“Runway to Win is a collaborative effort of 22 top American designers who have created special pieces, including T-shirts, tote bags, scarves, a wristlet, in support of the president’s re-election campaign,” said Marti Adams, the Obama-Biden campaign’s director of event communications. “The online store is scheduled to launch on January 12. All proceeds from sales will go to Obama Victory Fund.”

Some reports say that Vogue editor and fashion queen Anna Wintour helped pick the designers for the effort.
