All eyes were on the Jason Wu Fall 2009 runway show in New York Fashion Week. After all, this is the 26 year-old designer who created Michelle Obama's inaugural ball gown and the dress she wears on the cover of the March issue of Vogue magazine.
Juson Wu lived up to the Obama hype with a dreamy collection that was inspired by fairy tales and a book of illustrations by Arthur Rackham that Wu used to read as a child.
Implications - There is something special about Jason Wu -- the fashion world knows it, Michelle Obama knows it, and the media does.
Looking through the outfits in his madly hyped fashion show, it's clear that Jason Wu is not a flash in the pan designer. It appears as though he has a long future in the fashion industry.
