Michelle Obama chooses creation by 26 year-old designer JASON WU

"Born in Taipei, but also having lived in Vancouver, Paris and Tokyo, he combines modern lifestyle dressing with the spirit and detailing of haute couture in a way that is both innovative and romantically reflective.

Influenced by the classic photography of Richard Avedon and the collections of Charles James and Jaques Fath, We celebrates the female form by emphasizing a women's hourglass silhouette while utilizing the most luxurious fabrications and detailing. Harking back to the days when women were always polished and styled to perfection, the Jason Wu collection aims to revitalize the art and perfection of dressing with a relaxed and youthful attitude." via his website

Jason has been sewing since the age of 9, studies sculpture at 14 in Tokyo and lived in Paris his senior year of high school. Not surprising... Wu graduated from Parsons and interned with Narciso Rodriguez (designer of Michelle Obama's red and black dress the night her husband, Barack Obama was elected).
