If you think the name Vera Wang is synonymous with beautiful wedding dresses, you should be prepared to have all of your preconceptions skewered with her Spring 2017 show. The clothes had an edgy feel as the models teetered down the runway in buckled platform booties. The largely monochromatic collection featured clothes that were both deconstructed and distorted as proportions were altered to create elongated shapes and silhouettes in a way that may be difficult for her die-hard fans to appreciate. We liked the sheer, georgette cocktail dresses and separates that were beaded with pearls and featured a structured peplum. Who says reinvention is a bad thing? We certainly celebrate her for trying something different.
