Jason Wu Plans to Launch Leather Range, Dreams of Couture
New York-based fashion designer Jason Wu is to create a leather goods line.
The designer, who launched his eyewear range in March, is keen to expand his fashion empire with a new collection as he thinks it will be a great addition.
“My eyewear collection is only the beginning of my accessories range, stay tuned for later this year - there is more to come. Now that I have an established ready-to-wear business it seems to be the natural step to expand into the world of Jason Wu. There is so much more I would like to do to complete the vision.”
Jason - who counts Michelle Obama among his celebrity fans - has been spending a lot of time in Florence, Italy, researching his new range: “The beautifully ornate architecture has been very inspiring. I always find great inspiration while I travel.”
The 27 year-old designer also has an eye on couture: “I have always loved the art of couture and appreciate the rich history and awe inspiring craftsmanship. I loved many of the shows but my favorite experience was the YSL retrospective at the Petit Palais which really was so compelling.”
