Bergdorf Goodman is being Wu-ed.

Jason Wu is designing a limited edition capsule collection to be sold exclusively at Bergdorf Goodman and on its Website starting May 14.

Wu chose to work with Bergdorf Goodman because the high end department store has long been a supporter of his collection.

"Bergdorf Goodman is one of my largest supporters -- this collection is the natural next step with them," Wu told StyleList.

"Being available in store and online speaks to the way we do business right now. Online is just as important as being in-store."

The line will consist of eight cocktail dresses, inspired by the best-selling styles and fabrics from his past few seasons, made new. The dresses will be "American" in style, favoring yellow, red and navy, and will have defined waists and emphasized shapes. Prices will range from $1,150 to $2,990.

"It's a capsule of my signature collection and is meant to hang alongside my regular collection," Wu explained. "It is a complement to the Jason Wu collection."

The designer has been on an upward trajectory since just before his gown was chosen by Michelle Obama for the inauguration.

That extra push has made this designer a household name and provided him with numerous opportunities to dress the first lady.

In fact, Wu spoke to StyleList from Washington D.C., where he was appropriately taking part in the donation of Mrs. O's iconic inaugural gown to the Smithsonian Institution.

"It didn't dawn on me until this morning that I was going to meet the first lady. It was amazing," he said with awe in his voice. "It's pretty extraordinary to be a part of American history."

Jason Wu also has a line in collaboration with Tse cashmere.
