Video: Jason Wu Talks About Intimacy & Wardrobe Essentials After His NYFW Show

The times are changing; the times are staying the same. What matters most to women is what has always mattered: beautiful clothes that add to our strength and beauty and enrich our daily lives. What matters to the industry, however … that’s in flux as designers, retailers and clients adjust their expectations in terms of access, timing and the whole song and dance of it all.

On Friday Jason Wu prioritized real women and presented his spring collection inside a gorgeous but relatively small environment. The number of attendees was about half that of last season, and while Jason always creates a beautiful runway environment, yesterday’s felt truly special.

We captured the daring and nontraditional landscape of the show, and we spoke with Jason about how it all relates to the looks he loves—and what’s on offer now for fall 2016
