The Vera Wang Fall 2019 bridal collection ‘Versailles’, was inspired by Louis XIV of France. Vera herself declared that ‘Louis was the first fashion rock star. By referring to King Louis XIV as the original power-dresser and the king of Sun, Vera explains how he was obsessed with fashion and dressing up.
The ruffled collar, dramatic sleeves and silk velvet ribbons worn by fifteenth-century Parisian princes are the key elements of the Fall 2019 collection. By using exquisite fabrics such as metallic lace or hand pleated chiffon, Vera blesses the gowns with that seductive Elizabethan look.
Each gown is beautifully paired in a modern way with extravagant hand-crafted tiaras or crowns. ‘I don’t see bridal conventionally, I never have,’ Vera Wang said. ‘To me, this is more about art and pushing myself creatively forward.’
