Vera Wang announced earlier this month the opening of her first Australian store - forget the 20 hour flight to New York, Vera Wang's signature gowns are now available on Australian shores at the InterContinental Sydney. The Vera Wang brand, synonymous with luxurious, artistic and modern design and a long list of celebrity clientele has been creating stunning gowns since 1990. Sophisticated drama, feminine detailing and a modern approach are all part of her signature style. The stand-alone bridal boutique is by appointment only and Australian brides seeking a total experience will not be disappointed.
Here's how Vera describes their latest collection:
The Spring/Summer 2012 Bridal Collection represents an ode to the Paris Opera, with inspiration taken from the works of French artist Edgar Degas and his depiction of young dancers floating about the stage. Key pieces from the collection include an elegant strapless natural-waist ballerina ballgown with veiled layers of dégradé floral laser-cut organza and detachable trapunto-stitched bustier, and a graceful strapless sweetheart soft mermaid gown with draped bodice of sunburst pleating and cascading fan back train. Vera Wang describes this Collection as "artful and adorable".
