A native New Yorker who spent her career at the forefront of fashion, Vera Wang began a sweeping makeover of the bridal industry in 1990 with the opening of her flagship salon at the Carlyle Hotel in New York City. In 2000, Vera's enthusiasm for couture fashion resulted in the launch of her highly acclaimed ready-to-wear collection, followed closely by the much anticipated debut of Vera Wang Eyewear in 2003. The Council of Fashion Designers of America honored Vera by naming her "Womenswear Designer of the Year" in 2005.
Known for her nonchalant approach to style and luxury, Vera Wang's collections are synonymous with intricate design and exquisite attention to detail. The Vera Wang brand reflects her vision to create a lifestyle that goes beyond core bridal and ready-to-wear, and into eyewear, publishing, fragrance, beauty, accessories and home. These collections are positioned at the highest end of the luxury market. Driven by artistic, modern and luxurious design and style, couture-like quality and a high level of customer service, Vera Wang's collections hold impeccable customer appeal.
Vera Wang Eyewear embodies classic as well as contemporary design, utilizing unique color combinations, custom Italian materials and jewel-inspired embellishment. Today, Vera Wang eyewear and sunglasses are sold in stores worldwide and distributed in over 50 countries in North and South America, Europe, Asia and the Middle East.
