Canadian Designer, Jason Wu, tells Elle Magazine that he owes a lot to fashion. Did you know that Jason Wu moved to Canada from Taiwan at the age of nine. The young Jason was having difficulty picking up the language and his teacher thought it would be easier if he started reading things with pictures. So she gave him a stack of fashion magazines. He recalls seeing a Christian Lacroix spread and was desperate to figure out what it was about. In attempts to understand the images that he was intrigued by, fashion helped him to learn English!
