Jason Wu Plans Accessories Expansion

Paris—The world of Wu is expanding. Designer Jason Wu, 28, says he plans to delve further into accessories next year.

Wu, whose gained everyone’s attention when the first lady wore his gown to the Inaugural Ball, says he plans to expand into other accessories categories beyond his eyewear collection of Modo that launched earlier this year.

“My eyewear is only the beginning of my accessories range, stay tuned for later this year—there is more to come,” he told Vogue while in Paris last week showing his resort collection.

“Now that I have an established ready-to-wear business it seems to be the natural step to expand into the world of Jason Wu. There is so much more I would like to do to complete the vision.”

Handbags and other leathergoods are likely his next endeavor, since the designer indicated he was off to Florence to do research for his premiere accessories collection.

“The beautifully ornate architecture has been very inspiring. I always find great inspiration while I travel,” he said.
