Said to be best known for designing Michelle Obama’s inauguration gowns, fashioner designer Jason Wu has been making major headlines since the debut of his Ready-to-Wear collection in 2007. Born in Taipei, Taiwan Jason Wu moved with his family to Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada at the age of 9. It was during this time that he learned to sew, draft patterns, and remarkably also began to master sketching in fashion proportions, ingeniously using dolls for his mannequins. From there Jason Wu would go on to spend his senior year of high school in Paris. Before the end of that school year in 2001 Wu decided to come back to the states and moved to New York City to attend the prestigious Parsons School of Design. Jason Wu was already destined for success when at age 16 he began to work freelance, designing doll clothing for Integrity Toys. Within a year Integrity Toys named Jason Wu as creative director. Over the next 6 years Wu made earnings from Integrity Toys that he then would use to establish and launch the Ready-to-Wear collection. As a die hard fashionista I have long followed Jason Wu’s career and he has never ceased to wow me. Jason Wu is a 31 year old designer couture based in Manhattan. Designing clothing lines beautifully crafted from the inside out is a product of Jason Wu’s dedication. This couture quality craftsmanship can be attributed to focusing on strict attention to detail. More than 90% of the Jason Wu Collection is manufactured in New York City’s Garment District. Jason Wu is expanding his offices and has become a leading global talent in fashion because of his signature feminine esthetic. In 2011, Jason Wu announced the launching of his handbag and shoe collection, 100% handcrafted in Italy and designed using only the highest quality materials. Jason Wu creates a collection with bold and in your face yet soft feminine flare which is undoubtedly the definition of glamorous. Classic American uptown and chic, that is Jason Wu.
“I create clothes for women who are not only fiercely fashionable but also own their power and femininity,” explains Jason. “But the heart of my collection will always be the craftsmanship; everything starts from my obsession for details.” – http://www.jasonwustudio.com/about
