Michelle Obama favorite Jason Wu shines at NY Fashion Week

September 11, 2009

michelleobamaDesigner Jason Wu was already a rising star of American fashion, but when Michelle Obama chose to wear a gown he designed to the balls on Inauguration Day, Wu’s career soared.

And when he showed his collection for spring and summer 2010 on Friday at New York Fashion Week, the industry elite — including Vogue Editor Anna Wintour — turned out in force for the show at the St. Regis hotel on Fifth Avenue.

Models paraded on a mirrored runway underneath enormous chandeliers, with some guests remarking that any number of the designs would be suited to the fashionable First Lady.

Here is a video from the show. Do you like his collection?

How fabulous this design is! It is only diminished by the radiance from the beauty of our first lady! Jason Wu is greatly acknowledged by my peers in the fashion world. As his designs become more intricate,expressive, and fluid; I am anxious to work with him.

I work with the Real Housewives of Atlanta, and I am so exhausted from recent events: I had to post a comment:

If you want to see the OPPOSITE of elegance and class; view some of the behavior of the woman from Real Housewives of Atlanta. I just had to comment on most recent episode:

I must admit this show is chock-full of melodrama–the kind you can’t look away from. This is the episode that the gives Lisa Wu-Hartwell’s “Closet Freak” line along with the Fashion Stylist Tracy Sipp there coup de gras. You really see more than just a “good first effort” as NeNe diminuitively referred to as; I saw a very tasteful, trendy, and refreshing way of looking at these items that ingeniously could be worn on a night out or worn at night entertaining that special significant other. Mr. Tracy Sipp did launch a subtle attack on Sheree who was the absentee rival. To show up late with a off-the-top-of-the deck excuse, adding insult to injury–further waxed Mr. Tracy Sipp’s fury which was quite contained. For Ms. Whitfield to throw the final jab at Lisa by saying that she didn’t miss much; indicative of what Lisa was wearing; shows that Sheree is classless, self-absorbed with delusion of granduer, petty and ultimately inferior to the likes of Lisa and Tracy Sipp’s Fashion prowess.
