Fashion designer Vera Wang is most famous for replenishing a void in the bridal gown industry with her strikingly beautiful wedding gowns that are ultramodern yet simple. Wang’s success did not end with the bridal gown, because the company has also introduced Vera Wang candles, jewelry, shoes, hairstyles, bridesmaids' dresses and more, pampering the bride by providing many of the more time consuming aspects of a wedding by offering them all in one place.
Vera Wang was born in 1949 to predominant and wealthy Chinese descent parents but she was not handed everything on a silver platter, as her parents instilled basic goals and ethics in their children. Her paternal grandfather was a Chinese general, and her parents fled china shortly after world war II and eventually married and settled in New York. Her father soon built up a multi-million dollar medicine company and her mother worked as translator for United Nations.
Wang and her brother were encouraged by their parents to pursue academic and athletic excellence and to be consistent in everything they did. Her mother was recognized for her stunning beauty and peerless taste and at an early age started teaching Wang about style by exposing her to Paris fashion shows. As a child, Wang love clothes, ballet lessons and ice skating, winning her first regional championship at the young age of twelve.
First being hired on as the assistant fashion editor, at the age of twenty-three Wang became fashion editor for Vogue. Sixteen years later, after being turned down for Vogue’s editor-in-chief position, she joined Ralph Lauren as a design director and
continued to worked there for two years. Inside the Carlyle Hotel in New York, financially backed by her father, Wang then opened her own shop that featured her trademark bridal gowns that are adored and worn by so many, including Karenna Gore, Mariah Carey, Chelsea Clinton, Ivanka Trump and even the biggest fashion icon of all: Barbie®.
In the spring of 2002, Wang’s first signature fragrance launched and she soon presented her luxurious lines of candles. The Home Fragrance Collection of candles make ideal wedding and bridal gifts, because they are romantic and sensual. This selection of candles are available in five assorted sizes, scented with a combination of Lilly of the valley, gardenia and blooming damask rose wrapped in leafy greens and watery nuances, and two of the candles come with functional keepsake items.
