Jason Wu is a leading global design talent based in New York City. Through merging classic American sportswear elements with a sophisticated global attitude, he has created timeless classics with glamorous sensibility and a distinctively feminine aesthetic.
Since debuting his Ready-to- Wear collection in 2007, Jason has been dedicated to making clothes that are beautifully crafted from the inside out. With a focus on couture quality craftsmanship, over 90% of the Jason Wu Collection is manufactured in New York City’s Garment District.
Although only 36, the precocious designer has already achieved many of his aspirations. His collection is sold globally and he dresses some of the most influential women in the world including First Lady Michelle Obama, Reese Witherspoon, Julianne Moore, Diane Kruger, Kerry Washington and Christy Turlington, among many others.
Jason has received many accolades, including being named one of the finalists in the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund in July 2008. In June 2010 he won the Swarovski Award for Womenswear at the CFDA Fashion Awards and in April 2011 he was nominated for the CFDA/Swarovski Award for Accessory Design. Jason was appointed Artistic Director of Hugo Boss womenswear Ready to Wear and Accessory collection in June 2013. More recently, Jason was honored with the Fashion Star Award at The Fashion Group International Night of Stars 2015, and won the 2016 International Designer of Year at the Canadian Arts & Fashion Awards.
In June 2016, Jason Wu expanded with the arrival of GREY Jason Wu, a sister brand that is inherently connected to the mainline. GREY Jason Wu shares the femininity from the Jason Wu collection but with a more relaxed attitude. Named after his favorite color, Jason wanted to create a collection with relaxed, sophisticated silhouettes with unexpected graphic prints representative of his personality.
