Friday/February 13, 2009
♥ Jason Wu ♥

Bravo, Jason!
Jason Wu's life changed overnight when Michelle Obama wore the 26-year-old designer's one-shoulder organza-embroidered white chiffon gown to the inaugural balls.He refused to let his newfound celebrity go to his head.He said he was inspired by fairy tales, particularly a book of illustrations by Arthur Rackham that he had as a child. His focus, now more than ever, was dresses.

♥ Alexander Wang ♥

Wang at his most aggressive, with a feral tough-chic vibe. “These girls grew up like a pack of wolves,” he explained. “They get what they want.”

Sunday/February 15, 2009
♥ Diane von Furstenberg ♥

She dubbed her Fall collection "Nomad," and sent out a melting pot's worth of fabrics, embroideries, and patterns—from leopards to camouflages to tapestry prints. Von Furstenberg is betting that in "times like these," what a girl really wants is a little pizzazz.

♥ Marc Jacobs ♥

Leave it to Marc Jacobs to deliver a neon-hued, big-shouldered, crimpy-haired eighties antidote to the gloom and doom of 2009. "I was thinking about the good old days in New York," he said after the show, "when getting dressed up was such a joy."

♥ Rodarte ♥

a collection inspired by architectural artist Gordon Matta-Clark, who, in the Seventies, deconstructed parts of abandoned buildings for his series of “building cuts.”
