Vera Wang debuted a new collection of wedding gowns last Sunday at New York’s bridal fashion week…and the style world’s all abuzz. Why you ask? The goddess of gorgeous wedding gowns shook things up with a runway full of black…yes, black, wedding dresses.
In fact there was nary a white one in sight. The palest shade, a nude color, provided a bit of contrast, but that’s where it stopped. Black, black and more black. All of Vera’s elegant styling and amazing fabrics were on full display, a spectacular assortment of deconstructed chiffon, silk, tulle and organza…but it was her solemn color palate that really has people talking.
Is Vera foreshadowing a new trend a la Tim Burton that only Helena Bonham Carter would be brave enough to don, or is she simply having fun with the genre in time for Halloween. This show certainly piqued my interest, and my verdict’s still out.
You decide. Check out the runway looks here!
