Since she opened her first boutique in New York’s Carlyle hotel in 1990, Vera Wang has made a name for herself designing bridal wear so singular and yet so ubiquitous that the mere mention of a bride wearing Vera Wang operates like an aesthetic seal of approval on wedded bliss. Wang has long been the celebrity fashion confectioner for larger-than-life walks down the aisle.

Anna Wintor wrote the Foreword for Vera Wang’s book. She writes:

“I don’t think I’ve ever met anyone with a greater passion for fashion than Vera Wang or anyone for that matter with more determination.”

What a pleasure it is to carry Vera Wang; a modern woman with an incredible raw sense of style, a rocker edge and who is in line with the girl of today. I completely agree with Anna Wintour, Vera is down to earth, unassuming and democratically enthusiastic about fashion. When meeting with Vera and her team in her New York showroom on 39th Street, you feel the presence of a growing brand. The showroom fills with a vibe of Vera’s unmistakable love of fashion when talking with her about her ready to wear collections. She loves her art and has a love for all things raw and beautiful. Vera Wang has launched a brand with multiple outreaches in to many markets. She changed the face of the bridal industry with her launch of a bridal collection almost 20 years ago. Bridal as it had formally been known as the baroque costumes of yesterday was transformed into the important expression of fashion for the woman of today. The aisle became the brides red carpet moment because of Vera.

“I started at the very highest level so the upper end is something I know very well. I know it instinctively. But all the years I was designing, it frustrated me that I could reach so few women. Design is about point of view, and there should be some sort of woman or lifestyle or attitude in one’s head as a designer,” said Vera Wang.

WHEN BRIDES ASK ME, “WHAT’S THE BEST ADVICE YOU CAN GIVE ME ON MY WEDDING DAY?” I ALWAYS HAVE THE SAME ANSWER: “BE YOURSELF.” SOMEONE’S MARRYING YOU, THEY LOVE YOU FOR WHO YOU ARE, AND THEY DON’T WANT YOU TO BE SOMEONE ELSE- Vera Wang
