I love her interviews. She's so likable, chill and spontaneous. She looks so young and fun. And to think she's contemporary with Anna Wintour.

The best part of this video focuses on the personal space that Vera maintains as her refuge. Most people do not appreciate how strongly our surroundings influence our psyches and emotions. Wang is exceptionally tuned into this idea and, to her credit, she insists on a space that is carefully outfitted with a prescribed color and materials palette. That attention to design is a clear designation of intent.
I love IN the Studio videos. Keep'em coming!

You know she's a great designer by her level of craziness
Vera at 70 is still very youthful in over all look....amazing...aging gracefully and physically fit. Her work keeps her young.
Vera is so incredible. What a genius.

I love the in the studio series- it's really interesting how a lot of the designers like their own space to be minimal, almost like a blank canvas, so they have the mentality to be creative..

You sure can tell she's older but DANG SHE DOES NOT LOOK OR SOUND LIKE A 70 YEAR OLD AT ALL!
Great series, In The Studio.  Please consider profiling a couple of NYC authors. Not picky, you select.   Thanks!

I'm just curious. Do designers know how to create their designs hand by hand themselves? Or is the process kind of the same as building houses etc. where they are somewhat stand like engineers? Hehehe

this woman is a legend.
Sooo, from a perspective of someone who used to work for her- she does not design. She does not sketch. This is all a photo op. Her office is empty because she hides in it, refusing to design. What designer has an office without references, sketches, designs, etc? This relaxed, go with the flow, vibe that she is giving off is a lie. She is rude, flat out mean, and abuses her workers. She admits to hating bridal, but does it for the money. As for her ready to wear- her team knocks off other designers, and copies current trends, making the collection irrelevant when it walks the runway, and is the same reason she refuses to wear her own clothes. The only reason she still has brand is because she is rich and because she is a celebrity at this point. I can go on, and can seriously write a devil-wears-Prada-esque expose about this brand. (Coming from a person who used to admire her work until I learned the truth from the inside).
Yes Vera, insanity....real insanity.

Web connection raise us as followers rather supporters, l feel like watching the sport competition at the stadium to yell scream and shout, go champs go for it, how much l love this supporter job now, being supportive all those who make life worth living, informations and mass media power is everything. Fashion is helping us forget any sadness for a while and focus on tomorrow, hanging on hopes and giving wealthy people the chance for new investments or business partnerships or seeking for new opportunities, let's enjoy more cyber entertainment to connect people some more, help us Lord have mercy, save us from losing minds for good indeed
her office though 😍

Vera Wang produced a stunning new bridal line but the new commercial on YouTube which aired before watching an art tutorial with my 11 year old niece is atrocious. I hate to say this as I would never assumed the ad to be Vera's but she and her label should be ashamed of themselves for 1. allowing these models in such an unhealthy state not only represent her but to by then force the add until it can be skipped to be viewed by children and young people. Your first clue should have been when the ribs can be seen from behind and handles for hip bones second that maybe just maybe the model selection needed to be revised. I can not and will not support any designer or label who encourage this look and then let our kids, teenagers and young adults see what the best bridal designer in the world thinks you should look like on your wedding day. Can't you sell a healthy look for the young girls to dream on their wedding day?

Its ok vera wang your rich stop stressing.
I don't like the obsession with the human clothes hanger.
90% of women in the world are not that shape.
This is sad
Lydia Dugan
Lydia Dugan:
I think she must have lingual braces. They are the kind that are placed behind the teeth and yes, they do cause a bit of a lisp. I have them now and I am very self conscious about them. I do not think Vera needs to be reminded of them.
I love her bridal wear. Vera came from an extremely privileged background, but she wanted to make it on her own. She is a great woman.

Rhonda Costa
Rhonda Costa:
extremely intense of course, it's all on her.
She sounds different from how she used to. I think she might have dentures or some kind of mouth/tooth plate or something? Something is off about the way she's talking. She almost lisp'y, which she never did before.
