WOOED BY WU, AGAIN

Exploring his design possibilities with material like plastic, Jason Wu did it again with Melissa shoes.

Started their collaboration for the Spring 2012 collection, look at his midas touch for the Brazil brand. He played with Melissa’s unique patent plastic, named Melfex to create his own imagination of jelly shoes. I love the flats, especially the green Melissa Moon+Jason Wu.

ASIAN AMERICAN DOMINATION

Prabal Gurung, born in Singapore, Jason Wu born in Taiwan, Alexander Wang, Phillip Lim & Derek Lam born in the US from Chinese parents & Thakoon Panichgul born in Thailand. Asian’s heritage with American’s lifestyle. With so many inspiring Asian American designers, no wonder NY Times once reported that roughly 70% of international students newly enrolled at Parsons the New School for Design came from Asia. So did Fashion Institute of Technology whose 23% of the nearly students enrolled are either Asian or Asian-American.
