fall collections, new york: jason wu
by Jeremy Danté
stunned completely, the jason wu collection presented in new york was american couture. incredibly refined down to the last thread, jaw dropping by cast- every aspect of what a runway show should be was seen in this collection. im am beyond astounded at what was created by wu this season, given my initial hesitation at his development early on. wu’s interpretation of sophistication is at it’s peak this season as refined use of lace, metallics & feathers are seen. an all star cast including an opening daphne groenveld that followed sigrid agren, karmen pedaru, ming xi, rose cordero, hanne gaby odiele, fei fei sun, liu wen, jacquelyn jablonski, alla kostromichova, valerija kelava, lindsey wixson, anais mali, barbara plavin, frida gustavsson, joan smalls & karlie kloss with a final look worn by ms. jourdan dunn. based on design aesthetic alone, this collection is a clean cut winner- the cast drives that victory to the next level. the collections palette consisted of black & soft neutrals, with shots of blue, red, yellow & grey coats which were seen at the entrance of the set. i love, love, love this collection & am standing on my feet in applause for the vitality that is seen displayed as the vision of jason wu. new york fashion week just keeps getting better & better- this collection, is the best of the season thus far. an astounding show of sharp tailoring & gorgeous gowns.
