Barack Obama Fundraising

The cut reports: "Anna Wintour will co-host a fund-raiser with Sarah Jessica Parker for Barack Obama during Fashion Week. You may recall the invitation for this fund-raiser misspelled Wintour's name, an embarrassment to a campaign so adored and supported by the fashion industry. But nonetheless, Wintour's rounded up an impressive lineup of designers to help with the event at Charles Nolan's studio. Donors in attendance will be treated to a runway show featuring designs by Diane Von Furstenberg, Zac Posen, Proenza Schouler, Narciso Rodriguez, and Marc Jacobs. "

It's Just like a mini–Fashion Week but the only difference is tickets cost $$$$$$$$$10k
