Is Black the New White?

You will never imagine my surprise when Vera Wang recently debuted her Fall 2012 Bridal Collection at New York’s Bridal Fashion Week and 9 of the gowns were BLACK.  Yep, you read correctly – black!  Seems Ms. Vera has yielded unto her dark side with a fascinating collection of her signature tulle, silk, organza and chiffon dresses in shades of jet black, nude and caramel.  Is it possible that the traditional innocence of ivory wedding gowns is being put to rest by its sinister sister?  She’s definitely just as beautiful and elegant but also mysterious.  Take a look at some of the dresses from the collection and then tell us, would you wear a black dress on your wedding day?

Vera Wang Spring/Summer 2012 Wedding Gown Collection

Not too long ago I posted Fall 2011 White by Vera  Wang’s Collection which was an absolutely ethereal display of flowy fabrics by my favorite designer, Vera Wang (I’m sure you already knew that).  Well…my, my, my! I just got wind of the 2012 Signature Vera Wang Wedding Gown Collection and I. AM. SPEECHLESS.  Well, except to scream aloud…I WANT ONE!!!  Please.
