Designer Jason Wu Finds His Muse

Camilla is wearing Jason Wu’s designs in the above pictures

Jason Wu and Camilla Belle–He is a fashion designer and she is an actress/fashionista. J.W.: “We’re like two kids in a candy store. The dress is a custom-made dress. We thought red. I mean I did a lot of these kinds of dresses for my fall collection and we really wanted to pump it up with a scarlet, lipstick-red dress. It’s the epitome of American fashion. And she is the perfect muse.

It is obvious they work well together and inspire one another. The way Camilla inspires Jason to design a dress- is the way I get inspired by certain people to photograph.

Jason Wu studied at the Parsons The New School for Design at The New School in New York. His designs are unique and timeless. Even Michelle Obama is among many of his followers. She wore a custom designed white chiffon gown on the night of  President Barack Obama’s inauguration.

L.A.: “I’m inspired by individuality and embracing your own personality and style.” I would say she’s her own muse. Below are the pictures I took of Azizeh for her line. All of the jewelry she is wearing– is made by her. If you’re interested in her other designs (clothing & jewelry) check for updates!
