Wang on Weddings website.
"For a bride attempting to
express each facet of her personality in one dress
it is no easy task. Whether she is a schoolmarm or
siren, flower child or princess, socialite or career
girl, or a bit of each rolled into one, the bride
should choose a gown that reflects whom she is above
and before all else. A wedding gown must always
embody the individual.
Wedding dress design
begins with the fabric.
For more conventional wedding gowns, certain fabrics
have practically become generic. Stiff or
substantial, these materials have the necessary body
to respond in a precise way when draped. They are
also ideal for fitted bodices or bustiers.
Preferred fabrics for structured gowns include
stiff, opaque and shimmering Duchess satin, silk
taffeta, silk Radzmere and taffeta blends. Tulle,
originally used for petticoat and underpinnings,
possesses a charm and beauty all its own. Silk
faille, suited to a full extravagant shapes, and
basket weaves, with their lighter and crisper
qualities, are also appropriate.
Some brides opt for a soft constructed gown that
allows sheer comfort and body articulation. Choices
might include a versatile silk crepe, a sensual silk
charmeuse, a sheer georgette or an even sheerer
chiffon. A more fashion-conscious bride might look
to matte and wool jerseys."

In 1990, inspired by a new vision where fashion and
bridal meet, Vera Wang opened a bridal salon at the
esteemed Carlyle Hotel on New York City's Madison
Avenue. Retailers, editors and peers quickly noted
the impact of her innovative bridal collections and
encouraged Vera Wang to extend her design
sensibility to ready-to-wear and bridesmaids
collections. Eighteen years later, Vera Wang is no
longer an emerging brand. Vera Wang's new product
introductions reflect her vision to create a
lifestyle that goes beyond core bridal, maids and
ready-to-wear and into publishing, fragrance,
beauty, accessories and home. Vera Wang 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
collaborates with leading global partners, directly
employs more than 200 people and manufacturers the
majority of its bridal collection in company-owned
workrooms in the United States.
