Witch dress would you wear? Vera Wang's gothic brides

Wednesday October 26, 2011

After a season of of high profile weddings that began with the royal nuptials and culminated in Kim Kardashian’s extravagant affair, one designer has a case of white-dress fatigue.

Vera Wang, who created all three of Kim’s lavish dresses, has taken her latest bridal collection into darker territory.

"With all the big weddings that happened this year, it was fun to step out of the box," she told the New York Times.

With models traipsing down the runway in tulle, organza and Chantilly lace, the fabrics were strictly traditional.

The colour palette, however, was anything but.

The 16-piece offering came in shades of decadent jet black, nude and caramel, with no hint of ivory in sight.

"I found black to be fresh and tongue-in-cheek," she said.

"I did take it to a witchy kind of place.

"For me, it helped build a sense of mystery that I was hungry for. And it added this sensuality and sexuality, and a little bit of severity, too."
