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.
