Vera Wang - Bridal Spring 2008
(NEW YORK) The Vera Wang Spring 2008 bridal collection was Vera at her finest, inspired by the genteel aesthetic of high society social register American debutantes of yesteryear, from Jackie Bouvier to Doris Duke. "It's harking back to a time when women had their own definition of glamour, style, and chic," said Wang. Gowns were super luxurious and refined, and the collection wasn't limited to bridal white: dresses in jeweled tones of rich purple and iridescent pink walked alongside the pristine cream looks. An ivory silk organza gown with a lace and embroidered tulle overskirt and ivory faille bow sash at the waist was a standout. Satin cabbage rose embellishments in forest, amethyst, crimson, and magenta added a dash of color to simple, elegant silhouettes. Overall, the collection was the perfect blend of seductive beauty and old world elegance--with a hint of mystery. "Even the venue was meant to be fairly snotty," said Wang of her show space--the Ukranian Institute on the Upper East Side.
