Wu 1

By Manda J

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week for spring 2010 is well underway. While I am eager to see all lines there are certain line I want to see more than others. At the top of my list are Nicole Miller, Mara Hoffman, Diane Von Furstenberg, Tracey Reese and Jason Wu. Jason Wu has received the best kind of publicity a fashion designer can only dream of.

First Lady Michelle Obama,  chose to wear his design to the inauguration ball.MichelleO With all the hype and fame surrounding him I couldn’t wait to see his RTW (Ready To Wear) spring 2010 line. 

For his spring line he elected to use gray in addition to color and   print. The bustle is one its way back in, the front and side bussle.

I could see Michelle O wearing the gray skirt with the pink stripe, at a first lady appropriate length with a crisp white blouse.  The gray jacket and the red dress has Michelle O written all over it. Both items are conservative, but contain an element that makes it fashion forward. Some of my favorite Jason Wu ensembles that Mrs. O has worn are basic colorful sheaths.  The little details like the bow on the blue sheath add a young fresh feel to a conservative sheath.

Did I mention I LOVE Mrs.O style, especially the  Azzedine Alaia belt she wears. For more on Jason Wu and his collections visit his official site at
