What We Saw At the Jason Wu Fashion Show

As Vogue so aptly put it, Fashion Week is considered “the Olympics of Street Style”. Take a virtual stroll through the Jason Wu Spring 2013 fashion show and see how we, the Blogger 19, had the privilege of experiencing it, courtesy of Brizo. Read some of the show reviews and please add your own in the comment section.

  “We’re predicting an early trend of harness elements for spring–should we blame Fifty Shades? For spring 2013 Wu was inspired by the “erotically charged” images of Helmut Newton and the “dream-like” photos of Lillian Bassman. The result? That magical combo of lady-like meets badass. Wu’s delicate, filmy transparent dresses were topped with tasteful leather harnesses, lots of exposed corset seams, and the most perfect shrunken leather jackets. This being Jason Wu, the effect was never tacky. The palette was fairly muted, with lots of cream and white, perked up by a few pops of bright coral midway through the show. As per usual, Wu’s eveningwear is ethereal and makes you wonder why you never get invited anywhere fancy. Karlie Kloss was mesmerizing in a halter top tulle gown.”  –Cheryl Wischhover of Fashionista.com

Jason Wu, Harness Backs

“Fifty shades of Wu!” trilled Tim Blanks, of Style.com, at the exit of Jason Wu’s leather-and-lace rampage on Friday. He was referring to the weird, ever-present harnesses meant to toughen the froth.

As steamy as all this may sound, Mr. Wu’s mostly black-and-white clothes (he was inspired by the photographs of Helmut Newton and Lillian Bassman) were refined. Lace corset dresses looked richly detailed without being sappy; in fact, they looked like the sort of things a young woman would love to wear. And the mixture of rompers and smartly tailored tuxedos (with shorts) indicated how well Mr. Wu lines up his commercial ducks for the stores. ” –Cathy Horn, http://ow.ly/dzDtw
