Ready-to-Wear Fall 2015 - Recap: Jason Wu

Jason Wu, best known for dressing FLOTUS during the First and Second Inauguration of POTUS Barack Obama, has truly come into his own. This Taiwanese Canadian designer, based in New York, is only a mere 32 but has been around since 2006 when he debuted his first collection. Since then, his aesthetic has transitioned from very feminine, embellished dresses such as the ones he designed for Michelle Obama to a much more modern and sleek silhouette in ready-to-wear pieces.

For Fall 2015, Wu maintains that aesthetic with beautifully tailored pieces in tones of olive green, dark navy and black. He brings forth silk tie-neck blouses and high-waisted, cropped pants that prove his excellence in understated elegance. Cashmere coats built with detachable fur layers add a simple and luxurious twist to texturing. Further textural details came in the form of beads and crystals and still maintaining simple beauty. Wu also works with a greater variety of materials including crocodile, as used in a sleeveless dress. 

While Ready-to-Wear shows can tend to showcase less exciting, conservative collections, Wu's FW2015 effort proves to be timeless but just modern enough to be relevant for today's young woman.
