“An ode to the Paris Opera: Degas… young dancers floating about the stage! Artful and adorable!” VERA WANG influence for the new collection. This season VERA WANG was inspired by French impressionist painter Edgar Degas (19 July 1834 – 27 September 1917 Paris, France). The special thing about it is that every wedding veil has plenty of bows, in the waist or as headwear. Ethereal, lovely and feminine.
