The fashion industry's cr?me de la cr?me is helping fill President Barack Obama's campaign coffers.

Since bumper stickers and buttons are so 2011, several major fashion icons have lent their talents to create a new Runway to Win line that offers everything from totes to scarves.

The president's campaign website showcases a T-shirt designed by singer Beyonce and her mother Tina Knowles. This particular shirt includes famous phrases by Obama like "Yes we can." It costs $45.

The rest of the line goes on sale Feb.7.

Other contributors include Diane von Furstenberg, Marc Jacobs, Vera Wang and Derek Lam.
