The gowns are classic Vera Wang. The fabrics are worked in light layers of tulle and lace, with silhouettes ranging from minimal, chic columns to more intricate princess and mermaid styles. A new shape was a delicate lace shirtdress that looked modern and fresh in its simplicity. A high-low number, though, was the real showstopper. It featured a lace strapless bustier and cascaded into layers of frothy tulle.
Now, as you may remember from Vera Wang’s previous wedding dress collections, the New York based designer doesn’t shy away from the unconventional. After 24 years of debuting her latest designs on the catwalk, Vera Wang decided against an actual fashion show and opted to debut her Spring 2015 collection in the form of a fashion forward, film/visual presentation instead.
The gowns are nothing short of breath taking but be warned, the campaign images are a far cry from your average, romantic bridal collection – the styling is of the ‘heroine chic’ ilk – think lank, lifeless hair, kohl smudged eyes with frostbitten eyelashes.
