Vera Wang To Launch Bridal Jewelry With Chow Tai Fook

SHANGHAI–Bridal doyenne Vera Wang is expanding her universe again, linking up this time with Hong Kong-headquartered Chow Tai Fook Jewellery Group to produce a fine jewelry collection to cater to the modern Chinese bride.
“Vera Wang Love” will debut on Oct. 19 in Chow Tai Fook Shanghai stores before expanding to other key cities including Beijing, Chengdu, and Hong Kong. It builds on top of her existing offerings in the space via “Simply Vera Vera Wang” jewelry, as well as deals for homeware, and her core ready-to-wear and gowns business.
The collection will span 18K gold and platinum engagement rings, as well as wedding bands and fine fashion jewelry, with a starting price point of about $ 400.
Traditionally speaking, gold and jade usually adorn brides in China but the two sides said couples in greater numbers are starting to “incorporate diamond jewelry into traditional engagements.”
Wang has found a powerful partner in Chow Tai Fook, one of the world’s largest jewelers with nearing 3,000 points of sale across China. The group’s other brands include Chow Tai Fook T Mark, Hearts On Fire, Monologue, and SOINLOVE.
Vera Wang counts three boutiques in Mainland China–in Beijing, Shanghai, and Chengdu.
“The sophistication, quality, technical capabilities and vast consumer reach of

Vera Wang Suits Up Eagles Cheerleaders for Super Bowl Showdown With Patriots

DESIGNER SIDELINES: While some advertisers will be forking over $ 5 million for 30-second Super Bowl commercials, Vera Wang will be getting some air time for free.
The Philadelphia Eagles’ cheerleaders will be rallying for Nick Foles and the rest of the team wearing uniforms created by the New York designer. In 2003, Wang became the first big-name designer to suit up a NFL cheerleading squad. No slouch in the athletic department, Wang herself was a competitive skater before she segued into fashion. Through the years, Wang has suited up all sorts of elite athletes — Nancy Kerrigan, Michelle Kwan and Evan Lysacek among them. At this month’s Olympic Games in Pyeongchang, the undefeated U.S. figure skater Nathan Chen will hit the ice wearing costumes designed by Wang. “I have always been an athlete, a supporter of so many disciplines, a true fan, and very proud and humbled by having dressed so many athletes in competition and for many of their weddings and red carpet moments!‎” she said.
Considering 111 million tuned in for last year’s Super Bowl, Wang’s uniforms are set to be seen worldwide. “Whenever one designs for athletes, or performers, being viewed from 360-degree angles becomes imperative. But TV adds

Vera Wang Celebrates Chinese Heritage and American Upbringing at China Institute’s Blue Cloud Gala

BIG IN CHINA: Vera Wang and Ron Perelman were among the honorees at the China Institute’s annual Blue Cloud gala Thursday night.
The gathering at Cipriani’s lower Broadway location in the Cunard Building was meant to center on the Institute’s commitment to advancing understanding and deepening trust between China and the U.S. Ning Yuan, chairman and president of China Construction America, and Robert Hong Xiao, chief executive officer of Perfect World Co. Ltd. were also honored, as well as New York Gov. Andrew Coumo, who wasn’t able to attend the black tie dinner.
Beforehand, China Institute chairman Chien Chung Pei, better known as “Didi,” said of the honorees, “They share the spirit and mission of China Institute to shape positive and strong U.S.-China relations through education, culture and business.”
Derek Lam also turned up to support Wang. She later told the crowd how growing up in the U.S., her parents Cheng Ching and Florence Wang encouraged her to embrace American culture, never allowing her to forget her Chinese heritage. That delicate balance was what provided her and her brother “with such a unique view of the world and a sincere appreciation for both cultures,” she said.
Noting how the world she once knew has

Michelle Obama Wows In Black Vera Wang Dress At State Dinner

Michelle Obama made a jaw-dropping appearance alongside President Barack Obama as they welcomed Chinese President Xi Jinping to the White House for the State Dinner on Friday. Dressed in a custom, off-the-shoulder black Vera Wang gown, FLOTUS’ famously-toned arms were on full display.

She first teased her glamorous evening attire on Instagram while giving us a “first glance” at the State Dinner. Even though the photo was taken in a dimly lit dining room, we were still able to see Obama’s stunning side-swept curls and nude nail polish color.

This isn’t the first time that FLOTUS has worn the Chinese-American designer’s pieces for a major fête, as she donned a similar off-the-shoulder Wang dress at this year’s Kennedy Center Honors. Yet, the mermaid fit and tulle skirt of this State Dinner gown proves why she tops our list of the best-dressed first ladies.

Alexander Wang RTW Spring 2016

It’s shaping up to be the season of the 10-year-anniversary show in New York, with Alexander Wang among the clique of designers — Riccardo Tisci and Phillip Lim join him — reflecting on a decade in business. Wang didn’t want to rehash the past, not overtly, but asked himself what’s fresh and new. He answered with a collection of cool, dynamic, thoughtful clothes that felt especially relevant and real, and ultimately revealed the wisdom Wang has earned over his lightning rod career.
Designers feel the constant impulse and pressure to innovate, whether through fabric development or tech, and Wang has always enthusiastically engaged and experimented on that front. “Sometimes I feel like the innovation moves faster than what we’re prepared to absorb,” he said before the show. “Maybe the idea of the mundane and the rejection of innovation is what feels modern.” Mundanity as a fashion concept and mundane clothes are two different things. Wang drew on the everyday garb of the women — and men, for the first time on his runway — that surround him, but the collection was not ordinary.
Jeans, Army jackets, track pants, sweatshirts and T-shirts were enhanced and elevated to suit Wang’s particular style tribe. Under

Alex Wang Introduces Fashion Week to Britain’s Hottest Female Rapper

lady leshurr

We said it before and we will say it again: Alexander Wang, who celebrated his 10th anniversary this evening with a bold, in-your-face Spring 2016 show that spoke directly to his cool kid sensibilities, is a musical harbinger for the fashion world.

Soon after the lights went up on the runway, out from the speakers rumbled the voracious lyrics of underground hip-hop star Lady Leshurr. Née Melesha O’Garro, the 26-year-old British rapper possesses a streetwise personal style to match the collection, and her hit single “Queen’s Speech 3” was a fitting soundtrack to the clothes.

While not an American household name just yet, Leshurr has been a favorite around the Vogue offices for weeks now, and we reckon, is destined for music and fashion stardom too.

How to Pull Off an Alexander Wang Haircut: Bangs, Bobs, and More at the Designer’s Spring Show

alexander wang beauty hair

It was something of a homecoming for Alexander Wang. Before taking his final bow at Balenciaga early next month, his 10th anniversary show for his namesake label reminded tonight’s New York audience of what he does best—make cool downtown girls look even cooler. Only this time around, the Wang Gang was more eclectic than ever. Gone were the uniform Erin Wasson–inspired air-dried waves of his early collections. Instead, Anna Ewers, Binx Walton, Kasia Struss, and Mica Arganaraz stomped down the runway in a range of easy styles—from bedhead texture hanging loosely over their shoulders, to knots fastened into sporty sprays at the nape, and fuzzy waves falling over their eyes—not without a few major cut and color transformations, of course. “There’s not one singular idea of beauty anymore,” said hairstylist Guido Palau backstage, pointing out the height variation in the model lineup (runway sophomore Molly Bair clocks in at a towering 6 feet). “It’s really about bringing out your personality.”

A look around the room was proof that he had done just that. The girls were beaming. “What we’ve done is emphasize [their natural hair] with [Redken Wind Blown] . . . or a pair of scissors.” Through a tousle of fingers, a snip of length, fringe, or buzzed reshaping, Palau sought to give an edge to each model’s personal style. For Irina Kravchenko, a new set of micro bangs had her calling home to the Ukraine. “I feel so fresh!” she said. Peyton Knight shook off nearly a foot of her wavy brunette for a freshly shorn shag—and as divergent as the style may have been, “It makes me feel more me.” Just before making her runway debut, newcomer Lucinda Schaefers said goodbye to six inches of length, for a look that she described simply as “stronger.” After the last girl exited the runway, Wang played a video montage celebrating his whirlwind career, reminding us, in his words, that when it comes to hair or work, “It’s not worth it if you’re not having fun—you won’t get to enjoy it.”

Balenciaga, Alexander Wang in Contract Talks

PARIS — Could Balenciaga be facing a change in creative leadership?
Speculation is mounting in Paris that the fashion house, controlled by Kering, could part ways with Alexander Wang, hired in December 2012 as the successor to Nicolas Ghesquière, who exited after a stellar 15-year tenure and subsequently joined Louis Vuitton.
It is understood Wang is still under contract and preparing the next Balenciaga collection for Paris Fashion Week, scheduled for Sept. 29 to Oct. 7.
Spokeswomen for Kering and Wang would only say there are discussions between the designer and Balenciaga regarding the renewal of the contract.
The likelihood of an agreement could not immediately be learned.
As recently as last March, ahead of a fashion show attended by Lady Gaga, Balenciaga touted accelerating double-digit growth, with Wang telling WWD: “I feel we’re already a globally recognized house, and a top luxury leader. We’re well on our way.”
Wang and Balenciaga chief executive officer Isabelle Guichot had described a host of development plans for the company, citing men’s wear and knitwear among chief growth opportunities.
At the time, Guichot said the double-digit gains last year were fueled by “almost all categories, from retail and a very healthy wholesale business.” Balenciaga counts about 500 wholesale doors in

Olympic Skater Evan Lysacek Consulting for Vera Wang

STRICTLY BUSINESS: Five years after Vera Wang designed Olympic attire for American figure skater Evan Lysacek, the designer has enlisted him as a creative consultant for her company. The 30-year-old Chicago native hung up his skates some time ago and moved to New York last fall to work for Charter Realty & Development. As of Wednesday, his bio and photograph were still on the company’s Web site. Lysacek’s online biography notes that he headlined two national and one worldwide tour with “Smucker’s Stars on Ice” and also has worked closely with longtime sponsors Ralph Lauren, Procter & Gamble, Crest, Citi, Smuckers, Coca-Cola and Deloitte.
The former “Dancing With the Stars” contestant befriended Wang, an accomplished skater at the junior level, after she suited him up for the Vancouver Winter Games. Several years ago, Lysacek spent a few days trailing Wang as she put the finishing touches on one of her spring collections. “I’ve learned quite a bit through Vera,” he said at that time. “It’s really interesting to see what goes into a collection. That kind of creativity is extremely important, especially now in a world that is less about money. People can set themselves apart by the clothes they choose

Amex by Alex: Alexander Wang Charges Up the Red Carpet with a Custom One-Off

Anna Ewers Alexander Wang Amex Credit Card Dress

Earlier tonight, Alexander Wang made a splash at the CFDA Fashion Awards with model Anna Ewers in a dress composed of more than 500 American Express Gold Cards. But this isn’t the first time that credit cards have been used on the red carpet. Twenty years ago costume designer Lizzy Gardiner arrived at the Oscars wearing 254 gold American Express cards (they were all expired) before traipsing her metallic train onstage to claim an Academy statuette.

And while many critics cited it as one of the worst dresses of all time, its influence appears to triumph on. Swinging above the knee, Wang’s update certainly felt more playful and modern, especially grounded with his tough creeper mountain boots. When it comes to the checks and balances on this look, clearly the sky was the limit.

Alexa Chung,, Alexander Wang, and More Party in Pj’s Before the Met Gala

Photographed by Kevin Tachman

Call it the party before the party. While this weekend saw the jet set head westward to Las Vegas for the Mayweather/Pacquiao fight, those on the East Coast were bracing themselves for Monday night’s Met Gala. And what better way to get in the spirit of this year’s exhibit, “China: Through the Looking Glass,” than with a traditional dinner at New York City’s oldest dim sum parlor, Nom Wah Tea Parlor. Vogue’s Sally Singer hosted the evening which brought together an eclectic crew consisting of models Bella Hadid, Constance Jablonski, and Xiao Wen Ju; designers Alexander Wang, Erdem Moralioglu, and Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez; and front row staples Alexa Chung, Olivia Palermo, and Emily Ratajkowski.

The dress code? Pearl River–fabulous acting as an homage to the soon-to-be-closed Chinese emporium on lower Broadway. And the guests delivered—Phoebe Collings-James looked runway-ready, but stealing the show was the sensational Chloë Sevigny. Between bites of pan-fried noodles and vegetable dumplings, sips of St. Germain and Bombay Sapphire East cocktails—the custom gin and tonic bar proved to be a popular offering—and the jeroboams of Moët & Chandon sparkling with the Vogue logo in Swarovski crystals, Banks, Miguel, Aziz Ansari, and Grimes took in the charming setting and delectable cocktails on offer. After dinner and a champagne toast, guests including André Leon Talley, Hamish Bowles, Lisa Love—with daughter Laura—and Ladyfag flocked to the street to take in a spectacular lion dance performance by Chinatown Community Young Lions. Consider Saturday’s activities training for Monday night.
