Jason Wu Spring 2011 RTW

It's hard to believe that Jason Wu has only been on the fashion forefront for 4 years. But since the first line launched in 2006 he has gained so much momentum and made a major name for himself. A large part of that is due to the fact that he is an absolutely amazing designer and so much more sophisticated beyond his 27 years. But he definitely got a major break when Michelle Obama bought several of his pieces when she was introduced to Wu by famed Vogue editor-at large Andre Leon Talley. Now his designs are worn by the likes of stars like Kerry Washington, Diane Kruger and Camilla Belle. Wu consistently brings fresh air to the fashion world with each collection he shows. This past winter we saw gorgeous dresses on a pink carpet. This year Wu went all over the map with ladylike trousers and suits, shirts with bow collars, beautiful dresses and lots and lots of COLOR! (yay!) Also I saw many a corsage - which I LOVED! This collection is TDF - no doubt about it. I don't even have to explain the photos speak for themselves:

 
Two of the gorgeous menswear inspired looks. I am totally obsessed with those girly bows.

 
Look at these corsages! ahhh! And I love the pops of color in both these looks. That blue dress is definitely made for a woman. And check out his shoes on the second model - nice bright colors against the black. Yes please!

 
So happy that nude trends will be continuing into the spring months. But I'm leaning more towards this flouncy navy dress. Gorg!

 
These are two of the fancier gowns from the collection. I could see this black dress as potential awards season material or for a fabulous premiere. I love the ruffly girly details. Jason Wu definitely knows how to make a girl feel feminine and fabulous.

Thoughts on this beautiful collection? Do you love the color? Does it make you excited?! To see more colorful desings (lots of pinks - of course!) and the video from this runway show - click here to watch. Love the music too!
