San Francisco–On Friday, March 21st at the historic San Francisco City Hall, “The Art of Fashion: Jason Wu” event took place. Coordinated by Neiman Marcus and The San Francisco Opera, this show marked the first time the renowned designer has debuted a collection in the Bay Area, all for the benefit of San Francisco Opera Guild’s award-winning music education programs, which have served children in Bay Area schools for 70 years.

The event began with people walking up the beautiful steps of San Francisco City Hall at 6pm when the doors opened to an exquisite high ceiling Rotunda filled with tables topped with rich red tablecloths and candle light settings. The guests quickly filled the space with their eccentric accessories and excited voices, waiting for the event to begin.

At seven, the guests were ushered into the North Light Court where elevated rows of chairs lined all sides of the crisp white runway. It lay blank like a canvas and we were eager to have the Jason Wu collection take over the pure white stretch.

The looks from the show were filled with reds, purples, whites and blacks. Wu’s collection featured everything from tailored pea coats to breathtaking ball gowns that floated down the runway. When the event moved into the Rotunda and the South Light Court, you could hear many people discussing the long purple gown that was featured in the lineup. It was so memorable because of the richness of color and feminine cut.
