Fashion Icons: Vera Wang

27 Jun


When Vera Wang was planning her wedding in 1989, she was frustrated by the  scant selection of gowns. So she designed her own. The rest, as they say, is  fashion history. A former figure skater and fashion editor, Wang has become one  of the best-known names in bridal wear. Name a famous female, and chances are  she wore Wang to her wedding. Vera  Wang evening gowns are also staples on awards-show red carpets.

As Wang’s name gained clout, she didn’t restrict her brand to the upper  crust. She struck a deal with department store Kohl’s that led to an affordable  line called Simply Vera, and she also boasts fragrance, jewelry and lingerie lines. Wang’s designs, whether high or low-market, have made her  synonymous with modern, romantic femininity.

I know that you ladies get excited about all things wedding/marriage. I’m sure you have a favorite designer or things you love about her, so leave comments here!
