After the Michael Angel show I had 15 mins to get to Jason Wu’s Fall 2010 presentation. Usually this is plenty of time to get across town, but the traffic was a nightmare – we didn’t move for 10 mins.
When I arrived with Bryan Boy and other late comers we were told that the show was about to start so they wouldn’t let us in.
Then a very dapper Derek Blasberg arrived with Pop Editor Dasha Zhukova. He made one phone call and we all got in.
Oohh to have that much power.
Menswear inspired looks were the surprise on the very long pink runway of Jason Wu’s Fall 2010 presentation, with oversized coats, tapered pants and plaid jackets.
The designer who once told me he’s a very much a girlie girl designer stayed true to his roots presenting sweet, feminine, and playful dresses and gowns.
Feathers is a recurring theme for the designer, and this time we saw them woven into halter dresses and off-the-shoulder dresses.
The invitation for this presentation was dipped in gold, so it wasn’t a surprise to see this also on the runway splattered and applied to several looks.
It was a interesting presentation with a mix of masculine/unpredictable and feminine/predictable pieces.
Did you like the very obvious change in direction?
Here’s my video of the finale. Karlie moves like an elegant swan in her gown.
Amanda Peet and Kerry Washington were in the front row perfectly epitomizing the collection in their contrasting looks.
