Cocktails and Conversation with Jason Wu and Dr. Valerie Steele – As Seen In WWD

Jason Wu reflected on business beginnings; food poisoning around Kate Moss; biggest accomplishments, and politics.

“Fielding questions at his showroom from Valerie Steele, director and chief curator of The Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology, Wu reflected on his trial by fire business beginnings; having food poisoning around Kate Moss; his biggest accomplishments to date, and his thoughts on runway as a tool for political activism, all with an open and humble sense of self-assurance.
Guests of the intimate conversation comprised mainly FIT Couture Council members, in addition to clients of Garde Robe, a luxury museum-quality garment storage and management service that helped put the event together. Jason Wu archives all of his past collections with Garde Robe, and the storage company also sponsors FIT; the event was the first collaboration between all three.” Read the full story here.
