• Where Jason Wu’s owl theme comes from: “I was working with Art Director Patrick Li, as we were exploring potential shapes for the Jason Wu logo. The owl came from a spontaneous sketch trying to perfect the "o" letter in the logo. We thought it was sort of ironic that the owl also happens to echo 'Wu...Wuuu,' so we named her Miss Wu.” [StyleList]
