Vera Wang: From bridal boutique to fashion heaven
Anyone who knows about high fashion and takes a look at the world of bridal fashion immediately thinks of Vera Wang. Her name stands for the perfect symbiosis of innovation and elegance. Hardly anyone else pushed the emancipation of traditional wedding dresses as much as she did. It all started in a dress shop where she worked part-time during college. A customer became aware of the industrious Wang and her passion for fashion and so she ended up with her first official job at no less a magazine than Vogue. Back then, nobody knew how she would later establish herself as the icon she is today.

Runway highlights: Refined everyday clothes and innovative bridal fashion
While her original wedding dresses always inspire the brides of tomorrow, her annual Ready to Wear collections also provide regular hypes. The focus is on today’s emancipated woman: modern, rebellious and sensual. Her Ready to Wear designs always make use of a gloomy colour palette with lots of print, glitter or flirtatious cuts. Her wedding dresses are no less tame. Especially colours like pink and red are often used here – either in the form of a voluminous ball gown or a romantic mermaid cut.
