Fashion designers—they're just like us! At least designer Jason Wu and those of us who love a good home DIY, that is. The New York–based designer hosted his latest (socially-distant) runway show this weekend in Manhattan, and he used materials from Lowe's Home Improvement to set the scene for the event, which was inspired by Wu's favorite vacation destination: Tulum, Mexico.
"This is one of my most transformative shows to date," said Wu of the event. "It was such a unique time to be designing and while it was a major adjustment at first, I think I’ve become even more inspired to see the beauty in everything."
This includes the decor options at Lowe's, which launched a new partnership with New York Fashion Week this year. The relationship meant that Wu's lush runway setting was created with more than 800 (!) plants from Lowe's garden center, and the boardwalk-inspired runway was made of pine planks from the store's lumber section. The designer even outfitted the space with rattan ottomans and throws and pillows available in the Lowe's decor section (yes, that exists, and yes, it is full of chic offerings).
In time with the event, Wu curated an edit of Lowe's products online that reflect the beachside sensibility of his show and collection. So, while you might not have been able to snag a seat to the actual catwalk, you can get the look for yourself on lowes.com. Fashion-forward backyard, here we come.
