Vera, Vera, for the fall…not one white dress of them all? Vera Wang’s “Witchcraft” collection, which debuted at New York’s Bridal Fashion Week, has me spellbound. Inspired by women’s lingerie, not a single white or ivory dress was unveiled in her Fall 2012 Bridal Collection. Instead, the models strutted down the runway in dramatic black and nude dresses. Wang describes the new line as “light, airy, concoctions of froth…mysterious and sexy, frivolous and fun.”
Check out the enchanting fall collection below. The imaginative use of traditional fabrics (tulle, organza, satin, silk, deconstructed chiffon, and Chantilly lace) combined with non-traditional colors, will leave you mesmerized.
