Becoming a New York Fashion Week pro means having a working knowledge of the designers that make it happen. Today, we're taking a closer look at one of our favourites, Jason Wu. The wunderkind designer never fails to impress with ladylike silhouettes and trendsetting pieces, which is exactly why we want to get to know Mr. Wu a little better before his Fall 2013 show.
Taipei-born designer Jason Wu has quite an eclectic background. He started out as a freelance doll clothing designer, but quickly made a name for himself with real girls in the fashion world with his luxe, superfeminine sportswear wares. Jason's easy, glamorous designs are a hit among stylish stars like Diane Kruger, Blake Lively, and Natalie Portman — not to mention First Lady Michelle Obama, whom he dressed for both the inaugural ball in 2008 and 2013. Each of Jason Wu's collections are impeccably crafted, blending classic haute couture techniques with a modern, sophisticated sensibility. Take a look back at Jason Wu's most notable runway moments now.
