f/w 09.10 new york: jason wu.

#NYFW collections

after you dress the first lady, what do you do for an encore? if you’re jason wu, you use the new mood of optimism to create a collection fit for a queen (literally, as some of the models wore tiaras). 50s style full day skirts were paired with short sleeve sweaters, soft blouses, long tweed blazers, tiered dresses, ankle pants, and printed soft suits. for evening, like the dress he designed for the first lady, the silhouettes were flowy–gowns in tiered tulle, loose beaded tanks–but he also added some structural pieces, like belted ballgowns with bustier tops, or velvet skinny pants with waist length tapesty jackets. overall it was sophisticated while still being young and fresh, perfect for the first lady or any lady.
