Jason Wu... "Is in the middle of a journey"
Mr. Wu has certainly been in the press a lot lately. With his new line for Target out this week, a new 9,000 sq. ft office, faucet and bath accessories for Brizo and his new Fall 2012 collection being unveiled at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, momentum continues to build.
Let's take a look at the new office/studio designed by Jesse Carrier and shots backstage at his Spring 2012 show. It looks like the design lines have been crossed once again. Who was influencing who?
The entry has a modern and classic mix of elements ~ just like his clothes.
3 steel tables occupy his showroom, the clothes the focal point.
The wallpaper created by Elizabeth Dow is made up of the pages of The New York Observer. Jason liked the pinkish coloring. He feels he is "making news" too.
Jason obviously loves to collaborate. For his Spring show he worked with graffiti artist KAWS, on these petal prints~ which lends him more street cred, as if he needed any.
The reception area shows his love of rough and refined elements. We may be getting a glimpse into what the future Jason Wu stores will look like. And you know it's only a matter of time.
What's next for Mr. Wu? A line of cosmetics and accessories: Home or fashion ~ hmmm, we'll have to wait and see. I'll try and clear that up later this week when I meet Jason Wu. I have a lot of questions!
I will be a quest of Brizo's for an informative, fun filled 3 days of exploration and innovation. I will meet other wonderful bloggers, learn more about this fashion forward company and their collaboration with Jason Wu. I am really excited!
