Season’s Round Up # 55: JASON WU FW2013
Being THE designer known as the one who dresses America's First Lady on two important occasions - the first inauguration in 2008 and the most recent one has cemented Jason Wu's status as a renowned fashion designer. And he is definitely a force to be reckoned with considering the show that he just had for FW2013 Women's RTW. The entire collection focused on the female form - confident, sexy and glamorous women in sharp, cinched outfits. And if I were to be fairly frank I personally think this is one of Jason's best collection to-date.
The pieces center on a lot of strong, defined shoulders, fur pelts, heavy tailoring with a focus on collars that are to die for and belted waists - taking on a modern twist to Edwardian inspired couture. I have been drooling and dreaming about the jackets and trenches that sashayed down the runway and I honestly cannot wait to see them on my own. The show exuded force and power, elegance and grace and it's a combination that works for me all the time!
All in all I think Mr. Wu has crafted a collection that builds on his signature style and if this collection is any indication then the fashion gods better watch out because he's definitely out to take on the world! He's definitely got a supporter in me now!
