Amidst perhaps one of the biggest swarms of Fashion Week insiders we’ve seen, we miraculously made our way to our seat for Jason Wu’s show yesterday at Center 548. We immediately took note of the ominous looking runway, which was made-up of uneven pieces of white plastic. At first a bit nervous that this could equal a stumble-heavy runway, we then took a look at the show list and our anxiety disappeared. Arizona Muse, Daria Strokus, Hanne Gaby Odiele, Jacquelyn Jablonski, Joan Smalls, Siri Tollerød, Ruby Aldridge, Jourdan Dunn, Liu Wen, Ajak, Patricia van der Vilet, and Karlie Kloss are just a mere few of the major girls walking the plastic runway yesterday. Kinga Rajzak opened the show in a clean-cut black and white shorts suit, while Saskia de Braw closed in a floor-length black-and-white gown as elegant as Audrey Hepburn. In a word the entire collection was elegant – made for the classic beauty with an appreciation for flattering silhouettes, beautiful fabric, and exquisite sophistication. We can already imagine seeing the collection on a number of red carpets (the closing three floor-length gowns are destined for the Academy Awards), and predict to see the more everyday pieces on model style icons like Crystal Renn and Hilary Rhoda.
