Look out Wang, make room for Wu! The hot Asian-American designer has been on fire since First Lady Michelle Obama put him on the map by wearing his custom number for President Obama’s inauguration. Now the 28-year-old partners with high-end Web retailer Net-a-Porter for a bridal collection.
WWD reports that Wu designed five exclusive pieces, including a classic tiered-tulle gown and a bias-cut ball-length skirt with an embriodered tank and belt. Wu’s collection also includes an over-the-knee feathered skirt with a bow tank, a short, beaded shift dress and a silk bodice-fitted dress and wide-circled skirt.
The Wu bridal line is likely to go beyond a debut collection and become a full scale line. Let’s cross our fingers ladies!
