Spring 2010 Preview

Crystal Visionary
First Lady Michelle Obama may not make an appearance, but Jason Wu has plenty of other surprises up his sleeve for Spring. In addition to changing venues—he's showing in the St. Regis Hotel, which he hopes to wake up a little with a modern set—Wu will be unveiling his line of jewelry for Atelier Swarovski. Expect the baubles as well as the clothes to be sculptural, as their starting point was the work of artist Tara Donovan. "I like her concept of sculpting with everyday objects," Wu said, "so I'm using fabric and crystals and making sculptures in that spirit." Bonus tidbit: Stephen Jones, milliner to the smart set, is doing the hats.
