Jason Wu has joined Hugo Boss as the artistic director of Boss womenswear. In this role, he will be responsible for the creative direction of all product lines and image-relevant aspects of the Boss womenswear ready-to-wear and accessories collections.
Along with his eponymous line, which he will continue to work on, Wu is set to debut his first Boss collection for Pre-Fall 2014. For Fall 2014, he will hold a show during New York Fashion Week in February. As for where he'll be setting up shop? The designer plans on working with his design team at Boss headquarters in Metzingen, Germany, and in an atelier in NYC.
"I have long been a fan of Hugo Boss's vast tradition and lineage in extraordinary tailoring. With the state-of-the-art facilities that are unique to the Hugo Boss design labs, I plan to develop a strong, feminine womenswear collection that reciprocates the brand's authority in menswear," he told Vogue UK.
