Vera Wang has built a lifetime of success at the very forefront of the fashion industry, most noticeably in the department of bridal attire. Wang built a reputation by working as a fashion editor for Vogue at the tender, young age of 23, which gave her the perfect opportunity to work on close terms with highly accomplished individuals within the fashion industry. Wang started her solo career in 1990, with her signature nonchalant attitude towards style, with designs primarily focused on layering, intricate draping, and impeccable attention to detail in her work.
Wang’s reputation within the bridal dress industry flourished impeccably with her introduction of her bridal label, “Vera Wang Bridal House.” Her label at first included famous designers of the likes of Christian Dior and Carolina Herrera, but in time, Wang’s reputation grew to great lengths, especially amongst the likes of celebrities and higher social elites.
Wang’s leap into her own creation of a signature collection has provided many a bride-to-be with some of the wedding dresses we will always remember. To this very day, her collection of signature bridal and evening attire are sold to high-end retailers in around 55 different stores, with the option for custom, made to order designs, of which are exclusively available at her boutique in Manhattan.
A Reason for Her Fame
Wang has been accredited time and again for her impeccable work within the bridal industry in America, receiving high-end rewards of great caliber. Wang has gained a high status in the fashion world, a status which has landed her considerable importance within the celebrity and high-end societies. Wang’s bridal attire has gained high status due to its aesthetic and edge, with a dramatic and romantic flair to it.
Who Has Worn Wang’s Work
Noticeably, two of the Kardashian sisters, Khloe and Kim, both wed their significant others in a bespoke gown made by Vera Wang; the latter sister wore a whopping three dresses to marry her then fiancé Kris Humphries. The Big Bang Theory star Kaley Cuoco donned an impressive gown made of tulle in a shade of bubble gum pink for her wedding on New Year’s Eve. For her very first wedding in 1993, Mariah Carey also chose Wang to design a gown for a price tag of $25,000. Victoria Beckham donned a risqué gown made entirely of off-white satin for her wedding to now-husband David Beckham, as did other celebrities of the likes of Jessica Simpson, Hilary Duff, and Alicia Keys.
Vera Wang’s repertoire and profile does not start and end with celebrities; her line is also famous amongst social elites and political figures and their families. America’s president Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka Trump donned an A-line silhouette be-spoke gown by Wang, a symbol of high sophistication paired with elegant diamonds for her wedding back in 2009.
On the other hand, the American elite, Chelsea Clinton, opted for a voluminous ball gown in material with a highly glamorous finish, paired with a chunky, accent, jewel-studded belt for her wedding to Marc Mezvinsky.
