VR: Inside Jason Wu’s Fashion Week Show

Preparing for a runway show at New York Fashion Week is a complicated and intense process. Long days spent designing and sewing clothes give way to even longer nights filled with model castings and fittings.

Designer Jason Wu, best known for making both of Michelle Obama’s inaugural gowns, says some of his favorite pieces come together just two or three days before the show. “That’s where all the magic happens,” he says.

My colleague and style reporter Elizabeth Holmes and I used a 360-degree virtual reality camera to capture Mr. Wu in his New York atelier, showroom and backstage as he prepared his collection—then took a front-row seat as the show unfolded. This story received over 2 million plays on Facebook.
