Michelle Obama and "the" Dress

I hope that you all watched the Inauguration of our new president Barack Obama on, January 20th 2009. And just as importantly, did you catch a glimpse of Michelle Obama's dress at the after party in New York City? It was designed by the 26 year old and Parsons the New School for Design alumni Jason Wu.

He does not plan to manufacture the design for the general public, but was just as surprised as the rest of us when Mrs. Obama wore it on television. His website has been getting hits left and right these days so you can bet that his show will be on a lot of peoples lips come New york Fashion week in February. "I'm doing a significant fur collection, and the message will be all about luxury,". He goes on to say that "Fashion is also sort of escapism, and women need beautiful dresses to lose themselves in." That will do Jason, that will do.
