Resort 2013

(More Photos & Info Here!
This Line has a very vintage feel in 2013 & was inspired by the work of artist Mike Libby. 
Wu's customarily ladylike look, but with a twist. A sleeveless white shirt, for example, formed the bodice of a dress consumed by a floral-printed chiffon skirt. Also in the mix are clusters of custom-made Swarovski crystals embroidered onto tank tops, cocktail dresses, and handbags shaped like insect bodies.
Umm, WOW! Vogue wrote a amazing Review. I LOVE IT! Peplum Skirts & a few sandals look like Wood & others look Like Jewelry. all In All, It's really Like Art, if You study the photos for a while, the black belts give all the models a tiny waist.
