We’ve. Been. Heard!!!!
Just two weeks after Ecorazzi announced that Jason Wu — the designer who made Michelle Obama’s inaugural gown — was planning to launch a HUGE fur collection, the Wu camp has decided to change directions.
According to WWD.com:
“Wu was scheduled to launch a fur collection with Sara Furs for fall but, according to him, it’s been put on the back burner until further notice. ‘As a result of increased interest and demand from our global retailers, we’ve decided to put our fur license on hold and concentrate on our growing ready-to-wear business,’ Wu said. ”
