Jason Wu

Jason Wu's inspiration for his Fall 2009 came from a collection of fairy-tales he had as a child, and so, the inaugural gown he designed for Michelle Obama at a fairy-tale moment in our nation's history, could have only come from Wu.  This collection was REALLY PRETTY, and the askance tiara's spoke of a princess with intellectual merit.  A great description of our First Lady.  From the third row (my seat assignment) the pictures left a lot to be desired, but you get the gist, part of the fairy-tale was just being there...

As the rest of the fashion pack veered toward rocker-chic and demure colors, Mr. Wu's show was a much needed diversion.  Probably not great for an everyday working woman or stay-at-home mom, but good for those nights out on the town.

Is Jason Wu for you?  Are you a lady who lunches?  Does your style personality reflect Romantic characteristics?  Then maybe, just maybe...try a few pieces on for size, from the spring collection in stores now...
