Jason Wu for Net-a-Porter

February 25, 2011

Like everyone else, we fell in love with Jason Wu when Michelle Obama wore one of his glamorous gowns at the Inauguration Ball in 2009. From the initial media frenzy and last year’s CFDA win, to the success of his eponymous line and a well-received TSE gig, the talented designer was quickly catapulted to sartorial stardom and suddenly seemed to be on everyone’s radar!

We at The Wedding Company were of course, thrilled when we learned that Jason Wu would be trying his hand at designing bridal attire. The capsule bridal collection, exclusive to our favourite online shop, Net-a-porter was finally unveiled a few weeks ago bringing the same beautiful craftsmanship and exquisite detailing to these bridal pieces, perfect for the modern city bride.

“I think that the modern bride is looking for more relaxed options. By designing bridal separates that can be worn after the wedding, you could say that I’m deconstructing the bridal genre as we know it.”– Jason Wu

Bridal separates? We love the idea of a chic après-wedding wardrobe!
