Wu Hoo! for us. Boo Hoo, for Jason Wu.
According to Womens Wear Daily (WWD Issue 02/03/2009 ) Jason Wu, who we blogged about the other day, has decided to put his nasty fur collection on hold. An anonymous DB source linked Tim Gunn (Project Runway), who is very anti-fur, to being Jason Wu’s teacher at Parsons. Maybe he inked a letter? Or it could have been the huge uproar, the thousands of letters we wrote, and the realization that if you’re going to dress our liberal, animal-loving First Lady – your next move should probably not be an economically short-sighted horror-show of cruelty, supposed ‘luxury’, and excess.
After Michelle Obama sported a Jason Wu gown for the inaugural balls, the designer has been basking in all the attention. The overnight fame has made him shift gears slightly. Wu was scheduled to launch a fur collection with Sara Furs for fall but, according to him, it’s been put on the back burner until further notice. “As a result of increased interest and demand from our global retailers, we’ve decided to put our fur license on hold and concentrate on our growing ready-to-wear business,” Wu said.- (WWD Issue 02/03/2009 )

The vegan “Marinara” pie is simply: San Marzano tomatoes, extra virgin olive oil, oregano, fresh garlic, fresh basil, sea salt. Definitely go check it out. but the magic is in the painstaking dough process, involving yeast that dates back 2000 years! You’ll believe it when you taste it.
“Who in the their right mind would spend $20 on a personal pizza?” You ask. Well, I was skeptical at first, until my friend Jodi convinced me to bite the bullet and bite into the most amazing pasta per pizza I’ve had in my life. At Una Pizza Napoletana in NYC’s East Village – you’ll find the art of Neapolitan pizza most excellently executed. If you are a lover of artisan pizza, this is it’s chapel. Plus, the owner, Anthony, has got some sick tatts.
