Jason Wu shakes it up with feathers, fur and splashes of color

The minute the lights dimmed and the music started glaring at Spring Studio in TriBeCa, fashion's elite knew they were in for a treat during Jason Wu's Fall/Winter 2016 show.

The 33-year-old designer, who is perhaps best known for dressing first lady Michelle Obama, provided a little bit of everything on Friday, combining fur and plaid and pops of color with fun takes on the classic women's suit.

Dresses and suit jackets were given a twist of the unexpected with fur collars and ostrich feather detailing, while oversized coats were amped up with large-scale plaids and, in one particularly striking instance, a deep Coquelicot color.

The collection's most memorable and well-received look may have been a tan strapless dress -- worn by model Lineisy Montero Feliz -- with slips of the side, whose ostrich feathers swayed playfully down the celebrity-lined runway. It was certainly Eva Chen's favorite.

The show's front row including the dynamo trio of Jennifer Hudson, Diane Kruger and Jaime King.
