#NYFW - Jason Wu SS 13
I love how Wu’s designs were less focused on the floral, colourful cliche most designers tend to go for when designing for Spring/Summer - Don’t get me wrong, I love it! & Its Spring/Summer.. like what else are you supposed to wear? But Jason’s vision for next season had more of a darker vibe to me, which I liked! I also loved the fact that he’s released a bit of his heritage again, in this collection, with the structured, (almost oriental) floral red dresses.
Overall, the details within this collection are simply exquisite, Jason is such a talented designer.
What did you think of his collection? Would you prefer more colour?
This winter, take a trip to the far east with kimono shapes and elaborate detailing! If you’re wanting to go adventurous this season, try channelling the ‘Samurai’! From Jason Wu’s oriental glamour to Proenza Schouler’s mandarin collared mini dresses, this is one trend you don’t want to miss out on, and Boohoo has made sure you won’t!
Fresh from their A/W collection, Boohoo have released a range of key items that can turn any old, basic outfit into something bang on trend! The Darcey Kimono can be thrown over a vest and leggings for a more relaxed glamour look in the day, the detailed patterns and fringing make this £20 look oh so more expensive!. This may not go down well with most, but it was one of my favourite pieces in the entire book! The Megan Blazer, for just £30, you’ve got a jacket that nails two trends! worn with black and gold and you’ve transformed this Proenza-esque item to something more Rococo, more Dolce & Gabbana!. I love a good work-to-club, transitional piece, and for £16, the Hannah top is perfect for that!, for a masculine look, wear with cigarette trousers and a blazer, for a feminine flair, pencil skirt and heels!
That was just one trend readers! So please stay tuned for the amazing items Boohoo has to offer this season!

Jason Wu A/W 2012-2013
Jason’s Chinese heritage inspires this dramatic collection that was showcased at New York Fashion Week this season. I’ve been a huge fan of Wu ever since Michelle Obama wore one of his dresses at the Presidential Inaugural Ball in 2008, and since then everyone else has fell in love with him too.
You can see his increased confidence in this runway show, with studded fortress doors, billowing smoke and a theatrical finale.
In his AW 12 collection, you can see Jason pays a tribute to his origins with references to the forever amazing Chinese culture, which range from military details of Maoist China to the old Hollywood interpretation of Asian Glamour.
Jason has really displayed his talent and impeccable and diverse vision for fashion. Love it.
