Jason Wu in Atlanta!

You may not recognize his face — yet — but you’ll definitely recognize Jason Wu’s work.


Michelle Obama has worn his designs on many occasions, including the Inauguration Ball last November.

I caught up with the 26 year old designer recently at Jeffrey Fashion Cares show.

A native of Taiwan, Wu was self conscious about his English.

There was no need — he speaks as beautifully as he designs.

He says he takes inspiration from his travels, sketching color and architectural ideas where ever he goes.

While in Atlanta, he looked forward to enjoying some of our restaurants, including Bacchanalia in West Midtown.

Celebrating its 17th year, Fashion Cares raises money for the prevention of AIDS and Breast Cancer.

For this year’s gala, I wore two dresses.

For the interview with Jason, I wore a knee length ruffled dress in canary yellow.

For the gala, I changed into the more formal, full length dress in royal blue.

Both dresses were designed by Vanessa Vinci.

All my jewelry, including the diamond dog tags you see in the picture with Jason, are from David Yurman.
