All about the Wu...

Up and coming designer Jason Wu got his big break when first lady Michelle Obama chose his creation as her inaugural gown. While most of us were praising his skills, others were shaming the designer for his use of fur. In preparation for his latest collection he talked about it representing luxury and using lots of fur. That got some people, namely Perez Hilton all on the boycott wagon. Bowing to the pressure, Jason Wu has decided to put any and all projects that include fur on hold. Here's his statement on the matter:

"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.
