One of Michelle Obama’s fave designers is venturing into bridal! Would you wear Wu when you say ‘I Do’?
One of the first looks that put Michelle Obama on the map as the fashionable First Lady she is considered to be was the white embellished Jason Wu one-shoulder gown she chose for the Inaugural Ball. From the cascading chiffon to the intricate detailing down to the Swarovski crystals, it was fit for a bride, and now, you can wear something just like that iconic frock when you say ‘I Do’!
Wu went from a young designer to an overnight sensation when Mrs. Obama wore his winning design — and it looks like he has another hit on his hands! Wu has been hard at work getting ready to release his first bridal collection in January, exclusively with Net-a-porter.com. The collection will consist of an assortment of different dresses ranging from $475 to $4,000.
“I wanted to create an exclusive bridal collection for Net-a-porter that is both youthful and injected with elements of American sportswear, which I favor for my collections,” Wu told WWD. “The capsule collection includes wonderful options for a bride, but also has a relaxed attitude with pieces that can be worn to other occasions.”
All the dresses will have unique accents such as cascading ivory tulle, or big black bow belts; some will having fitted bodices with degrade beading or an embrodied tank, and one will even have a godet chiffon skirt. So, what do you think, ladies- – would you wear a dress by Wu?
