It’s rare that a fashion designer who is 28 years old can garner as much attention as Jason Wu did in 2008 when he designed the gown that Michelle Obama wore to the inauguration ball! What an accolade for a Taiwanese designer! (picture linked to story).

The permanent press type is beautiful with easy to wash instructions, no ironing required and often made of stain resistant material.

It is delightful, fun and easy to work with new fabrics that are enhanced by technology…"
