Gallery: Jason Wu at New York Fashion Week Fall 2012
Like Tadashi Shoji, Jason Wu chose to look to the east for his Fall 2012 collection, with elements of the designer's Chinese heritage clear in the detailing on his grown-up, sexy dresses and chic tailoring. Mandarin collars were prominent, and fitted frocks with high necklines paid subtle homage to the cheongsam. But there were also younger, modern touches - quilted gilets, fur trims and sexy seam details.
There was also eveningwear made from devore velvet, the same fabric used on Wu's recent dress for Michelle Williams. This time though, the detailing was more texture than pattern, and came on sexy wrap dresses with deep slits, which came coupled with intricately detailed jackets and tough leather accessories with gold studs. Take a look at the gallery to see some of the collection highlights.
