The royal wedding has come and gone. Its fashion statements will effect fashion for years to come, but there are a few brave souls willing to offer alternatives. Vera Wang has chosen not to follow what has been determined by English taste, but to hearken back to a more elegant age from France.
Fashion Daily at wcog2005.org gives insight into the latest trends in the fashion world and though the royal wedding influence is there, there is emerging a trend to go in a different direction. Vera Wang’s team with its innovative ideas as a cornerstone of her fashion empire may be the major player to capitalize on traveling the road not so taken. She has begun by displaying a dazzling tidbit of her Spring 2012 Bridal Show, and elegant does not even begin to describe the artistic spirit of her creations. Vera Wang is making a statement to the fashion world that though royalty may influence and create a stir, it is the artistry and the enterprising muse of fashion designers that determine what direction fashion should go.
Vera Wang based her idea for the wedding gowns on the Paris opera and Degas paintings. Paris opera is always dramatic, and an exhilarating theatrical display. Degas, an artistic paradox, was classified as an Impressionist painter fascinated by dancers and horses. He never claimed the title of Impressionist. His work evoked emotions from high regards to scorn. There are no words to describe Vera’s creations, but she put a video on her website displaying a fantasy of crinoline and lace.
