Vera Wang: A Life in Fashion

Milestones

“From the moment she unlaced her competititve figure skates for the last time, Vera Wang set her sights on a life in fashion. In the 40-plus years since, hers has been a singular ride, one that took her first to Vogue magazine, where she learned that no one disturbed the calm of Mr. Penn’s chatter, to Ralph Lauren, where she experienced the creative joys of limitless resources, and finally, 20 years ago, to her own company.

From its modest beginnings as a small bridal boutique, Vera Wang the firm has grown into an important licensing-based operation, and Vera Wang the designer, into a major force. Long the go-to goddess for aisle-bound superstars…and in ready-to-wear, she has dared to be different, adhering steadfastly to her luxe-casual bohemian aesthetic…” -Bridget Foley
