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
Museums and other indoor activities across New York are being allowed to reopen as coronavirus restrictions are cautiously eased. New York City is encouraging New Yorkers and people from the tri-state area to ‘staycation’ and help the city recover. (Aug. 24.)
With many spending more time at home amid COVID-19, home improvement projects have become increasingly popular.
Lowe’s and Home Depot have both seen growth during the pandemic, particularly among consumers tackling do-it-yourself projects. Now, Lowe’s is bringing New York Fashion Week home with curations from fashion designers Jason Wu, Rebecca Minkoff and Christian Siriano.
The North Carolina-based home improvement chain gave USA TODAY an exclusive first look at the “straight-off-the-runway” curations, which were inspired by “each designer’s definition of home” and include chairs, lamps, rugs, tables, pillows and even artificial plants.
The curations, now live at Lowes.com/nyfw, include items previously available at Lowe’s.
