Vera Wang: Classic American Couture

Continuing our American designer series for #NYFW, our next spotlight is on Vera Wang.

Few designers have been so widely coveted by TV shows, movies, and A-list celebrities as Vera Wang. The Chinese American New York City native has designed countless wedding gowns for everyone from Chelsea Clinton to Jennifer Lopez and managed to stay on the lips of basically every main character on Sex And The City in between it all. Transitioning from figure skating (she started at the tender age of 8) to creating sparkling skating outfits seemed only natural for this highly intelligent designer.

Continuing to elevate her passion for design, she eventually won the CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America) Womenswear Designer of the Year in 2005. Vera Wang incorporates pure fantasy into her Bridal collections, as well as her couture and ready to wear, providing each and every woman something truly special. Timeless and classic with a whimsical edge, she has been a pop culture favorite for decades. Her roots firmly planted in fashion (she was the Fashion Editor for Vogue in the 1970s before working with Ralph Lauren), she continues to grow her brand and create pieces for the quintessential American woman. 

Tina wears a black chiffon sleeveless gown adorned with all over beading and a delicate, modest train. This gown is available in store.
