Jason Wu To Hugo Boss: Designer Named Artistic Director Of BOSS Womenswear

2013 just got even better for Jason Wu! The designer has been named the Artistic Director of BOSS, Hugo Boss' womenswear collection. According to the Telegraph, the new role will see Wu in charge of Hugo Boss's main womenswear ready-to-wear and accessory collections.

Wu will continue to design for his eponymous label, which is based in New York City. As the head honcho at BOSS, the designer will work with the team in Germany and also establish a New York studio for the brand. His first BOSS collection will be Pre-Fall 2013, debuting this winter, followed by a Fall 2014 collection presented at New York Fashion Week in February.

The new job is a big one for Wu, who has previously made his name with his own Jason Wu collection. His most famous client is, of course, Michelle Obama, who chose to wear Wu at not one but two inaugural balls.

In recent years, Wu has also expanded with a diffusion line, Miss Wu; a collection for Target; and collaborations with brands such as Lancome and Swarovski.

Now he's upped his game with a second full-time gig. With Wu at the helm, will you be taking a closer look at BOSS this winter? Read more at WWD.com.
