Jason Wu December 22, 2009

Filed under: Women's Pre-Fall 2010 — Courtney Michelle @ 11:12 PM

The name may not ring a bell, but when you hear “Michelle Obama’s inaugural dress” it’s- “Oh Yeah!”

Once considered a “local” designer, Jason Wu has literally blossomed over night. But is it really blossoming if you have already been making fabulous clothes? I suppose that’s the point of a good designer (and any other profession in the fashion industry for that matter)- to be discovered. I’ve heard reports say he is a Chicago designer, but in-fact Wu was born in Taiwan and is based in Manhattan; being educated around the world, including Tokyo and Paris.

Wu got that chance during the Obama campaign days, designing for the First Lady and becoming one of her top favorite designers- being seen (taped and photographed) numerous times in his pieces. And he has earned the right to be. Going from designing outfits for dolls to producing dresses for real-life ones, Wu’s got real talent. What I really love? He still designs for dolls; including a collab with drag-queen phenom RuPaul.

Take a look at some pieces from his Pre-Fall collection. ~ C.M.

The material on this dress is bananas!
