A former Narciso Rodriguez intern, Jason Wu launched his eponymous line in 2006 and quickly became a favorite of downtown starlets who appreciated his signature brand of fuss-free elegance.
From full-length gowns to more casual daywear, Wu’s pieces have clean, classic lines and incorporate bright colors and prints without being flashy. The result is modern and wearable but consistently noteworthy.
Wu has an eye for detail and a penchant for feminine silhouettes that give his collections timeless appeal. Case in point: Out of an elite cast of wannabe Michelle-dressers, it was Jason Wu—or rather his white, one-shouldered, silk-chiffon-and-Swarovski-crystal gown—that was selected by the First Lady for her inaugural-ball appearances.
