Pronunciation: Jay-son Wu
The twenty-six-year old became a household name when First Lady, Michelle Obama, chose the newbie designer’s white chiffon dress for the inauguration ball. Prior to becoming the premiere designer of choice by the First Lady, Wu was the creative director for a line of designer dolls called ‘Fashion Royalty’, sold at F.A.O Schwartz. He started his own fashion label in 2006 and was recognized by Vogue editor, Anna Wintour, as a promising new talent. Wu’s designs are distinctly feminine and polished. His teacup skirts, floral dresses and dainty jackets create nostalgia of an earlier era while keeping it decidedly modern. No wonder the First Lady was bowled over by his clothes.
