Jason Wu featured in Wallpaper
Jason Wu is encouraging a touch of LA-based leaning, and is collaborating with the Otis College of Art and Design – the city’s first independent school of art, and Mary and David Martin’s MADWORKSHOP Foundation to mentor 15 students this autumn. Wu is a stalwart of the New York Fashion Week calendar – having established his eponymous label in 2007 – and his collaboration will examine the symbolism of uniforms in the Forties and Fifties, and translate these tropes into a contemporary ready-to-wear collection. This offering will also benefit from access to the Costume and Textiles Department at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. It also celebrates the centenary of Otis College. The result of the work will culminate in a runway show in May 2019. Stay tuned!
