Michelle Obama favorite Jason Wu shines at NY Fashion Week


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?
