Jason Wu Heads to BOSS

Shake-ups and big moves are the cornerstone of the fashion industry, so it was only a matter of time before Jason Wu headed a new gig.

Enter: BOSS Womenswear, where as of June 15, he'll be the Artistic Director.

The 30-year-old designer will "assume responsibility and creative direction for all product and image related aspects of the principal womenswear Ready-to-Wear and accessory line in the HUGO BOSS Group." (To put it as professionally as possible.)

But in addition to overseeing the gang at the HUGO BOSS headquarters in Germany, Wu will open a design studio in New York, where he will continue to work on his own ready-to-wear and accessory collections.

"I have long been a fan of HUGO BOSS' vast tradition and lineage in extraordinary tailoring," he said in a statement. "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."

You can catch Wu's first BOSS Womenswear line in New York during pre-Fall 2014, and in February 2014 during New York Fall/Winter Fashion Week. Get into it!
