Quote of Note | Vera Wang


Looks from Vera Wang’s fall 2013 ready-to-wear collection.

“I try on everything I make….I think when I design ready-to-wear, I’m trying to channel myself. Women designers, of whom I admire so many, have a very special relationship with designing for other women. It’s a very personal journey. You can’t help but bring yourself into it. So if you’re feeling for a certain silhouette–if you’re feeling for a certain dress length or you’re feeling for black or you’re feeling for color–that will affect your work as a woman designer. And it will affect how you feel about other women. So in this particular case as a designer, you’re really channeling your own creativity and trying to bring it to women. When you dress a women for a red carpet event, like the Oscars, or you dress a woman for a wedding, it’s about them. It’s a hundred percent, for me, about the client. It’s about channeling who she is.”

-Vera Wang in a recent conversation with Fern Mallis at New York’s 92nd Street Y
