NEW YORK - The designer: Jason Wu showed his spring-summer 2013 collection at New York Fashion Week on Friday. You will remember he was a relative unknown when in 2009 First Lady Michelle Obama chose his dreamy white, one-shoulder gown to wear on inauguration night. Since then, he's added accessories to the mix and a lower-priced collection that will launch for spring 2013. Named after his house mascot and logo, an owl, Miss Wu will retail exclusively at Nordstrom stores. But on the runway, he showed his higher-end main collection, which considering the subject matter, could well be referred to as Mrs. Wu. PHOTOS: NYFW celebrity sightings The inspiration: The sexually-charged photos of Helmut Newton and the dream-like photos of Lillian Bassman.
