Jason Wu - New York Fall 2009
(NEW YORK) Fairy tales were the theme of Jason Wu’s post-inauguration show, but the designer meant business. All the top editors and buyers were in the house, and Wu didn't waste their time. For fall, he didn’t do anything jarring. Instead, he continued to perfect his irresistible uptown aesthetic. There were plenty of light chiffon tops, delicate ruffled frocks, and tiered dresses to swoon anyone in need of a romantic closet staple. Craftsmanship on embroidered gowns was outstanding, and the collaboration with jeweler Philip Crangi an intelligent choice. This winter Wu was given the gift of spotlight, and he seized the day. “ I wish I could finally relax,” he said after the show. “But I have ninety sales appointments this week--ninety!” There will be certainly plenty to sell.
