Brides-to-be won't have to shell out $6,000+ for a Vera Wang-branded dress anymore—and they won't even have to duke it out at a sample sale! The designer has just announced a partnership with David's Bridal to produce under-$1,500 dresses, which will be available in stores beginning next spring. "This exciting, new partnership will now enable us to serve even more of America's brides, including those who could only dream of wearing a Vera Wang gown," says Bob Huth, president and CEO of David's Bridal. This is the latest venture in Wang's empire. She also has a line of mattresses. [Racked Inbox]
