There was no gong, but between the drums on the sound track and the Forbidden City doors that opened the runway, no one was left guessing at Jason Wu’s fall theme. “An Asian person doing an Asian collection. It’s a revolution,” cracked Wu at a preview the day before his show, noting that he did not decide to go there thematically because — news flash — China is booming. “It’s been booming for a long time,” said the designer, who lived in Taiwan until age nine and went back a year ago for the first time since starting his business.

In all seriousness, tackling Asia was a risk. Wu broke his heritage into three parts — Mao military, Qing dynasty and the Forties Hollywood glamour of “Shanghai Express”
