The minimalist design of the Adrian Wu Tutu creates a contemporary statue effect, using fashion to channel elements from the visual arts. At once a wearable piece and an art object, the tutu gestures to the sense of refinement and elegance commonly associated with the ballet world. 

At just 21 years old, Adrian Wu has already launched a fashion design business and published his first book, Style Diaries, which is now selling internationally. His designs have been featured on CTV, Fashion Television and in Flare, and he has worked with such Canadian celebrities as Keshia Chante and Margaret Atwood. Recently, Wu collaborated with Allan Candy to make a collection of dresses from candy wrappers.
