The Queen of wedding couture has introduced a range of gowns in her signature colour – black. While initially there were looks of disbelief at the initial black and beige wedding dress that appeared decidedly like something out of the Adam’s Family as it hit the runway, Wang’s genius for bridal design won through as the collection unfolded.
The audience quickly recovered and became increasingly appreciative of the beautiful and unforgettable bridal dresses.
Many style guru’s have said that Wang’s revolutionary collection is also a sign of the modern times – the blushing brides of traditional weddings are giving way to marriages which increasingly feature gay couples or women who are more mature and successful in their own right. People are increasingly looking to make new rules to suit their individual tastes.
This opens the doors to new cutting-edge traditions using non-white wedding gowns. And if Vera Wang’s collection proves successful, other designers will surely be jumping on the bandwagon to start a whole new trend.
