Beyonce designs T-shirt for Obama’s re-election campaign
London: Singer Beyonce Knowles has designed a T-shirt to support the Obama campaign.
The R and B star’s 45-dollar crew-neck top will help to raise crucial funds for the 2012 re-election effort. The former Destiny’s Child member, who last week became a parent for the first time with rapper husband Jay-Z, is one of more than 20 designers fashioning garments for well-wishers to buy.
Other designers include Russell Simmons, Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs, Tory Burch, Vera Wang, and Diane von Fursternberg, many of whom helped with the similar 2008 ‘Runway to Change’ project, a leading daily reported.
This year’s ‘Runway to Win’ project has fierce fashion credentials -it is organized by Vogue editor and long-time Obama supporter Anna Wintour.
The singer’s mom Tina Knowles, who manages the Beyonce’s own House of Dereon line, collaborated in designing the t-shirt, which is embellished with Obama phrases including the ubiquitous “Yes we can.”
With 2012 already upon us the Obamas have been looking for some star power to boost their campaign hopes.
The shirt is available for pre-order now, and the garments officially go on sale online Feb 7.
