Jason Wu to launch fashion doll for upscale Parisian boutique

Designer creates collector’s edition doll for Paris Fashion Week.

THE New York-based Taiwanese-Canadian stylist Jason Wu (pic) has pulled out all the stops to celebrate the upcoming Paris Fashion Week (Feb 25-March 5), creating a fashion doll dressed in designs from his own collection.

Wu, a fan of fashion dolls who has designed several of them, has introduced his latest fully articulated miniature fashionista ahead of ready-to-wear fashion week in the French capital, designed in partnership with the chic Parisian boutique Montaigne Market.

Naturally, this collector’s edition doll is dressed in Jason Wu designs from head to toe. The “Mini-Wu” doll (pic) wears a miniature reproduction of one of the designer’s most iconic looks: a sequined gold dress and an off-white cropped trench coat, accessorised by a beige bag and a pair of open-toed stilettos. Add two Montaigne Market shopping bags, and the doll has a look that would make any fashionista jealous.

The doll will be available for €150 (RM680) from late February exclusively at Montaigne Market in Paris, where fashionistas can also shop the Jason Wu Spring-Summer 2014 collection.

As artistic director of Hugo Boss, the 31-year-old Wu will be showing his womenswear designs for the Boss label at New York Fashion Week on Feb 12. – AFP Relaxnews
