SAN FRANCISCO, CA-San Francisco Opera Guild and Neiman Marcus Union Square join forces to present The Art of Fashion: Jason Wu tonight at San Francisco City Hall. The magnificent 1916 Beaux Arts City Hall, a national historic landmark, will be the dramatic backdrop for a runway show highlighting Jason Wu’s Fall 2013 Collection-marking the first time the acclaimed designer has presented his collection in the Bay Area.
The proceeds of this spectacular evening will directly benefit the 50,000 students that San Francisco Opera Guild reaches each year with our award-winning music education programs.
Since debuting his first ready-to-wear collection in 2006, Jason Wu has emerged as one of the leading global talents in the fashion world. The 30 year-old designer’s unique and distinctive esthetic blends American sportswear with old world sophistication and couture quality craftsmanship. His exquisitely feminine and modern gowns and dresses have captured the enthusiastic support of some of the leading women in the nation.
