We knew that 2013 would be a good year
for Jason Wu from the moment the First Lady stepped out in another one of his gowns at the Inauguration Ball in January.
 

It was announced today that the 30 year-old designer is the new creative director of Hugo Boss womenswear.

Wu will oversee the brand's ready-to-wear and accessory lines for ladies, in addition to continuing his namesake label: "I have long been a fan of Hugo Boss's vast tradition and lineage in extraordinary tailoring," said the designer in a statement. "With the state-of-the-art facilities that are unique to the Hugo Boss design labs,
I plan to develop a strong, feminine womenswear collection that reciprocates the brand's authority in menswear."

Wu's first collection for Boss will be presented at the pre-Fall 2014 season, and his first catwalk show for the brand will take place at New York Fashion Week in Feburary 2014.

We've had our eye on the designer for a while: Wu was featured in our Hot List in 2009, and we also interviewed him last year with his boyfriend Gustavo Rangel.
