NEW YORK — “We’re backstage at Jason Wu,” explains Binx by way of introduction. “As you can see it is packed!” That the Soho loft at 82 Mercer was crowded as in past seasons for the celebrated designer was to be expected, the man after all has dressed First Lady Michelle Obama on several occasions. Friday afternoon, however Jason Wu showed his Fall 2014 ready-to-wear collection, which was presented on the runway amongst others by Ola Rudnicka, Zuzanna Bijoch, Sabrina Ioffreda, Binx, and Sharam Diniz (all at Next). Fashion Week, it could be said, has truly begun.
