New York Collections Women: Jason Wu AW13
Jason Wu is currently riding the waves of success following the support of Michelle Obama, who has worn the designer’s more subdued creations to many events including the Inauguration Ball in January. For AW13 the designer continues to explore his more perverse side with a collection in mostly black, white and splashes of deep red. Wu was inspired by New York’s Park Avenue scene, and it’s rich characters display of wealth was noticeable influence on the collection. There were plenty of power suits and strong shoulders that oozed luxury as coats came in full fur or with fur details. It would truly be a moment to see Michelle Obama dressed in one of the fabulous furs come AW13!
