Designer Jason Wu named OPI the official nail care sponsor for his runway show this past September 9.Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI co-founder, has been working closely with Wu, finding inspiration in Wu’s color scheme and seasonal trends, and OPI will also be the official nail care sponsor for Wu’s upcoming Spring 2012 Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York City.
“Jason Wu is an amazingly talented designer, so being able to work with him is very exciting,” says Suzi-Weiss Fischmann. “Nail lacquers are a huge part of fashion. It’s a privilege for OPI to be working amongst world-renowned designers during Fashion Week. I’m thrilled to be collaborating with Jason to accessorize his spring 2012 collection with the hottest nail trends.”
Award-winning designer Jason Wu entered the spotlight in 2009 when Michelle Obama wore one of his designs to the Inaugural Ball. Wu is best known for his polished, ladylike styles that evoke the feel of old Hollywood glamour. Since he began his line in 2006, Wu continues to display strong pieces that incorporate clean, classic lines within his sophisticated and feminine collections, ranging from daywear to full length gowns.
