Jason Wu always has "a connection" with the people he is designing clothes for.
The tailor famously designed the dress Michelle Obama wore for her husband's inaguration as president, and counts the key to his success as always having his subject in mind when working on designs.
Fashion is so personal and I put a lot of me into everything that I do.
He told People.com: "I think it's important to have a connection with the person you're dressing.
"Fashion is so personal and I put a lot of me into everything that I do."
The 29-year-old sartorialist is astounded the dress he worked on for the first lady is now displayed in the Smithsonian Museum in Washington DC.
He added: "A few years ago all I wanted to do was succeed in fashion. I didn't think my work would be in the museum."
Jason's strong work ethic hasn't changed despite his fame, and he still adds a personal touch to all the garments he produces.
He said: "I'm so hands on. I'm on my knees doing the fitting all the time, for every single fitting. I don't want to miss any part of it, because that's why I'm in this industry. I wanted to do that."
