Vogue editor Anna Wintour and supermodel Iman will host the June 12 event.

Tickets are on sale -- and selling quickly -- for a high-profile high-fashion Obama campaign fundraiser to be held in downtown Chicago next month.

On June 12, celebrities, designers and the city's fashion elite will turn out for a cocktail reception unveiling a new Chicago pop-up shop for Runway to Win, a fundraising effort from the campaign to re-elect President Barack Obama that features low-cost items from 27 designers.

The star-studded event will be hosted at the now-vacated Harpo Studios and will feature the work of Prabal Gurung, Marc Jacobs, Jason Wu, Derek Lam, Diane von Furstenberg, Beyoncé and more.

The event will be hosted by special guests Vogue editor Anna Wintour, supermodel Iman, Chanel Iman and Obama campaign manager Jim Messina and tickets range from $150 up to $1,000 for access to the VIP photo reception or $2,500 for the photo reception and dinner. According to the event's Facebook page, tickets were "selling out fast" as of earlier this month -- so Obama-loving fashionistas may want to move quickly to guarantee their access to the event.
