New York Fashion Week AW 2012 - Jason Wu
The fashion week merry-go-round is back in town, and the New York Fashion Week AW 2012 shows are more appropriate than ever as we're all wrapped up against the sub-zero temperatures. One of my favourite shows so far was Jason Wu. I loved Jason Wu's SS 12 show, which had a modern, candy and neon coloured, Oscar de le Renta feel.
If I were to sum up this collection in one word it would be 'opulent'. Mixing military outerwear, luxurious fur and seriously slinky dresses, this collection was inspired by Chinese culture and Old Hollywood. On paper this could have looked dated and overdone, but with Jason Wu's touch it looked fresh, dramatic and wearable. Opium den chic.
