You might be a #GreyGirl if you enjoy dinner parties with themed menus and artsy guests.
… if you’re ambitious but laid-back, confident yet approachable.
… if you love colorful, casual, unique clothes in soft, sensuous fabrics.
You’re definitely a #GreyGirl if you’re the fashion director Caroline Issa, model Constance Jablonski, illustrator Angelica Hicks, poet Cleo Wade, actress Sonoya Mizuno or musician Sophie Auster.
Designer Jason Wu’s sibling label GREY Jason Wu attracts a clique of cool girls, many who attend the dazzling dinners Wu throws at the launch of his seasonal collections. But #GreyGirls aren’t only glitterati; they’re Wu’s close friends and fans of his fun, feminine designs–like Caroline Issa, who collaborated on his current collection, or our own Brianna Haynes, a department manager in our Nordstrom Broadway Plaza store.

Coolly feminine with a slight edge, Grey Jason Wu, his namesake designer collection’s sister line, is perfect for the New York society with whom Wu runs.
We got a glimpse inside two launch parties Wu has hosted to date—more will follow, we’ve been told—and a look at the comely guest list dressed in Grey. Additionally, the designer imparted some party hosting tips and a recipe for French vanilla bean ice cream—so good.

Do you have one simple tip for entertaining that you can share?
Make guests feel welcome. I think the best dinners have a great ambiance and are not too fussy. I love using creativity to cook and prepare for guests. Try to curate a meal that encourages guests to get involved.
