Vera Wang and her Alice in Wonderland Inspired Collection

A native New Yorker, Vera Wang grew up surrounded by fashion, often accompanying her mother to the world's most stylish boutiques. After a career in competitive skating and studies at Chapin and Sarah Lawrence, Vera discovered her own love for design while at the Sorbonne in Paris. She joined Vogue and at age 23, became the youngest fashion editor ever. After 16 years, Vera moved on to Design Director of women's accessories for Ralph Lauren. 

In 1990, she ventured out on her own, opening a luxury salon at the esteemed Carlyle Hotel in New York City to showcase her bridal collection. The Vera Wang label quickly took off, earning praise from the fashion elite for its luxurious fabrics, exquisite detailing and modern interpretation of classic lines.

Inspired this season by Alice in Wonderland, iconic New York designer Vera Wang held true to her psychedelic fairytale muse with a collection of youthful, cutting-edge designs for spring, that betrayed not a hint of the show-stopping gowns and bridal wear she’s become synonymous with.

While Wang’s latest wares may have been more aspirational than usual (in particular the tulle and organza super-pique meringue-like mini-skirts that might easily have originated from a psychedelic dream), the majority of the collection was original and keenly wearable.
