Video: Backstage at Jason Wu

By and

So far, 2009 has been Jason Wu's year — so what does 2010 bring? New York's fashion director, Harriet Mays Powell, stopped by the designer's show at the St. Regis today ("a classic New York institution," he said, which was something he really wanted in a venue) to chat with the young fellow about his inspirations for spring, such as the Nightmare Before Christmas (one of his favorite movies, jot that down for trivia night). He's also into the artist Tara Donovan, whose sculptural works with cups and straws inspired him in "taking the normal and making them incredible." Click to watch him reveal more about what went into his biggest show to date.
