Vera Wang – Formerly a fashion editor. Today a sought-after fashion designer. In the world of wedding dresses, hardly any designer is more in demand than her.

What jewelry did she create and who modeled for her famous perfumes? Here is the ultimate video list of Vera Wang.
Vera Wang: The unique success story of an icon
Wang’s career is unique. It is characterized by a burning passion for fashion and tenacious assertiveness. Compared to other designers, her international breakthrough was a long time coming. Born to Chinese immigrants, Wang saw the light of day on June 27, 1949 in Manhattan, New York City. At the time, no one knew that the young Wang would one day be the youngest fashion editor of the prestigious Vogue magazine. And even less that her name would later join the ranks of fashion icons.
