Madison Avenue, New York | 18.19pm
Yesterday I received a last minute invitation to Vera Wang’s Fall 2014 Bridal Collection preview. The new collection was on display in Wang’s Madison Avenue showroom; if you were to follow her work on the red carpet of Hollywood or pages of celebrity gossip magazines, you’d find a lot of white, some black, and occasionally the accented wedding-themed colour to spruce things up. For 2014 however, Vera Wang has opted to really splash out with a collection that fully boasts the passion spectrum of red, pink and coral.
Going through the dresses in the showroom is an experience that surpasses that of many other labels; because many of the most famous dresses worn by Hollywood stars have been celebrities, the showroom almost feels like a museum (“Oh, and here’s the dress Hilary Duff wore at her wedding…”) The craftsmanship of these garments are so exquisite, I could’ve spent hours getting a personal instruction on how every piece on hand was made and tailored.
