The St. Regis Princeville poolRenowned fashion designer Jason Wu, noted for designing the dresses of  First Lady Michelle Obama on several occasions, including both inaugural ball gowns, gained fashion inspiration during his recent trip to beautiful Kauai, where he stayed at The St. Regis Princeville Resort, perched on the cliffs of Kauai’s North Shore and which has attracted celebrities such as George Clooney, Alicia Keys and Jennifer Lopez.

“I am so inspired by the beauty of the Kauai – from the beautiful setting of the St. Regis Princeville Resort and the history of the island, to the stunning blue waters I explored when stand up paddle boarding and browsing local shops I stumbled across,” Wu, a St. Regis Connoisseur, said.

St. Regis Princeville Resort“I stayed in one of the St. Regis Ocean View Suites and was amazed by the stunning view of Hanalei Bay, which I could enjoy in almost every room of the suite,” Wu said. “I also loved the St. Regis Butler service. Once you experience a St. Regis Butler, you never want to be without one!”

In addition to enjoying his Ocean View Suite, paddle boarding in majestic Hanalei Bay, and browsing  local shops, Wu also took cooking lessons with Leanne Kamekona, a native Hawaiian and Executive Chef of the resort’s signature restaurant, Kauai Grill by Jean Georges Vongerichten, and Chef de Cuisine Maxime Michaud. Wu learned how to  make two of the Grill’s signature dishes, Rice Cracker Crusted Ahi Tuna with a Citrus Chili Sauce and the Nut and Seed Crust Mahi Mahi with a Sweet and Sour Jus.

“The experience included working with fresh caught Hawaiian island fish, which is a must have dining choice while in Hawaii,” Wu said. “I’m going to make this for my friends in NY.”
