VERA’S SHOE-IN: Vera Wang on Thursday unveiled her White by Vera Wang bridesmaid dresses and shoe collection in her showroom. The seven designs featured a color palette of orchid, amethyst, charcoal, champagne, blush, moss, midnight and ebony — all at less than $200 retail. Designed exclusively for David’s Bridal, the dresses ship to stores starting in late June. Wang was not on the scene but only because she had another wedding-related matter to attend to — the Bridal Challenge with Vera Wang for FN Shoe Star. Beyond design, comfort, height, weight, proportions, toe box and other components of the bridal shoes, there was dancing to consider. “Salsa dancing is one thing I never considered when designing my own line,” Wang said.
The designer has had plenty of other things to occupy her thoughts. In the past week or two, she addressed students at Wharton and lobbied D.C. politicians as part of the CFDA-backed antipiracy efforts. Her signature bridal collection will be shown Sunday in New York. Then there’s helping her younger daughter scout out college campuses and encouraging her husband Arthur Becker’s contemporary art collecting.
The three-part bridal challenge airs April 18 and 25 and May 2 in Webisodes posted on FNShoeStar.com, and the winner will be revealed in early June.
