Jason Wu has been named artistic director of Boss Womenswear, overseeing the team at the Hugo Boss headquarters in Germany while opening a studio in New York, where he will continue to work on his own label. “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 says. Wu’s first collection will debut in
New York for Pre- fall 2014.
