Vera Wang Goes Red

The bridal gown world got quite the shock for the second year in a row from iconic fashion designer Vera Wang. The designer's nude & black colored wedding gowns graced the runway last season - and she has turned it up a notch with bold red dresses dominating the runway this year.

With this new collection, which took the bridal world by storm this past week in the press, the designer pays homage to her heritage. In China, brides wear the color red to reflect love, romance and joy. The color red is also used the day of the wedding in the decorations of the bride & groom's homes, and even in the gift boxes/envelopes given out at the wedding. And although the color may be bold, Vera's subtle elegant details still shine through in the designs.

This new collection of 15 gowns celebrates the color of love and passion. A definite stray from the traditional white and ivory gowns that made her one of the go-to designers for future brides.

Vera says of the new collection, "Beautiful dream. The symbolism of Red. Boldly romantic, charming, protective, grand, seductive, sexy. From dahlia to scarlet, crimson and vermillion. A celebration of love."

"Vera always likes to wow and show a somewhat rebellious, anti-traditionalist approach in her shows, and I think that definitely came through," said Brittany Robins, Bridal Guide's Assistant Fashion & Beauty Editor. "She never ceases to amaze!"
