Jeffrey Fashion Cares Part 2: The Show
Hello my dear followers!
I am so sorry for the short absence - it seems like it is a busy season for everyone. As promised, here are the pictures from the "Jeffrey Fashion Cares" fashion benefit with honor guest Jason Wu. It is amazing that it was only 5 years ago when he had his first ready-to-wear collection. Jason Wu was also the designer of the white ballgown worn by Michelle Obama to the presidential inauguration.
"Sophisticated Elegance" are two words that he uses to describe his style and I could not agree more. However, his Fall'11 collections was specifically inspired by photographer Robert Polidori and his photo book on the 25 year long restoration of Versailles. Wu wanted to represent both the austere background and opulent decor of Versailles during that time. The austere shape and limited colors of his creations were contrasted against the opulence of Swarovski crystals, burned out features and elaborated lace. Here are some of my favorite pieces.
