Wason Ju, Summer Shorts, A Must Have In Your Wardrobe
Jason Wu is always on point with his summer and spring collections. Shorts are an essential asset to your summer wardrobe. Wu launched his ready-to-wear line of clothes with earnings from his years of doll designs. His first full collection debuted in 2006 and won the Fashion Group International’s Rising Star award in 2008. In 2008 he was nominated for the CFDA / Vogue Fashion Fund award. Bruce Weber shot the designer for W magazine’s “Summer Camp” portfolio in July 2008.
Michelle Obama is a noted Jason Wu customer. She was introduced to Wu by André Leon Talley, Vogue Magazine’s editor-at-large, who had been advising the current First Family on their appearance. She bought four dresses from Wu early in the year, wearing one of them for a segment on Barbara Walters Special shortly before the November 2008 election, prompting many in the media to consider her his “career-launcher”. She wore another dress, a custom-designed one-shoulder, floor-length white chiffon gown, at the inaugural balls on the night of President Barack Obama’s first term inauguration. In June 2013, Wu was named as the Art Director of Swiss based German fashion house Hugo Boss overseeing the entire womenswear range. Link into his world at http://www.jasonwustudio.com
