In NY, a Homespun Campaign for Obama
Organic fashion designer Kate Goldwater has achieved a lot for her 23 years. She has a store in the East Village, a signature style that stops strangers in the street, and a steady stream of alternative press.
But she's not stopping there.
As the 2008 presidential election heated up, Goldwater began designing exclusively around Barack Obama, building a homespun campaign that reflects her organic approach. She now sells recycled fashions emblazoned with a striking Barack Obama icon at her store, AuH20. But to get the word out, she's taken things a step further, launching local fashion shows in nearby bars.
Leveraging her buoyant personality, loyal friends and resourceful design skill, Kate Goldwater has managed to turn her day job into a force for the Democratic nominee.
Now Goldwater has a chance at meeting Anderson Cooper thanks to her efforts, and iReport Film Festival: Campaign 2008, an election competition sponsored by CNN's citizen journalism platform.
Watch the 'Fashion for Change' video below, also found here on iReport, to see Goldwater and her supporters in action.
