The last time we chatted up Jason Wu, it was after his eponymous collection had just walked; he was exhausted but feeling pretty darn good. Wu is one of the few designers who shows two collections every Fashion Week — his own line, plus a collaboration with TSE. The latter was unveiled this afternoon at a casual presentation, and Wu gamely walked us through his inspiration. He also explained how he keeps his energy level so scarily high when the rest of us mortals want nothing more by day six than to drink a bottle of Jack and pass out in our platform stilettos.
