For many, Vera Wang is considered the queen of bridal design and is renowned for her modern designs that mix contemporary lines with vintage style with timeless romance and elegance. 2019 marks Wang's 30th year in bridal design and this October will see her showcase her 60th collection to the world. While for many other designers this career milestone may see them give the nod to their beginnings and replicate their past creations, Wang has broken with the norm, and her Spring 2020 bridal collection is a breathtaking spectacle that enters into unchartered territory.
This collection is by far her most intricate and challenging yet, taking life out of Wang's desire to view cloths from 360 degrees. Each dress has multiple perspectives and is purposefully asymmetric. No one photo can capture any dress in its entirety.
Flowers dominated details, with florals used in a myriad of ways. Handcrafted bloomed replaced collars, sleeves, armbands and petticoats, amongst others, all placed with deliberate randomness that sees Wang blend silhouettes, fabrics, colours and flowers. The result was the illusion of spontaneity, haphazardly placed tulle that made dresses seem to take on a new shape with every turn. The irony, of course, was that in reality, each gown required unprecedented attention to detail to create.
Breathtaking, the collection is a discovery, with the body veiled with layers of sheer tulle - much like the opening of a blossom. With an effortless feel, this collection is for a modern bride, fashion-forward while wanting to look relaxed.
