Jason Wu Catwalk Fashion Show SS10
Jason Wu is the young designer who got famous because of Michelle Obama’s inaugural gown and her sleeveless shift dresses in juicy citrus tones. For summer 2010 he sent silk tweed pants and silk tweed hoodies down his runway in the gilded banquet room of the St. Regis Hotel New York. He added a little dose of downtown grittiness with trendy jumpsuits he called ‘mechanic’ suits. He tried to avoid being too edgy by using marabou feathers and presenting glossy cocktail dresses. And let’s not forget his special client: the staple stitch embroidery on fitted tweed dresses and the sculpted faille dresses had plenty of East Wing potential. Wu even accessorized most of the dresses with heavy leather belts, a nod to his favorite First Lady.
