Vera Wang is an American fashion designer based in New York City. Before becoming the successful designer we know today, she was a figure skater and designed her own wedding dress. Soon after launching her signature bridal collection, her designs became known as a balance between modern and traditional elegance. By mixing those two styles, she has acquired a large following. Today, she designs a wide range of products; ranging from engagement rings and ready-to-wear to dinner plates and cosmetics. The Vera Wang woman is drawn to the elegance, easy glamour, and artful layers of Vera Wang pieces.
