Last year, Vera Wang, the most famous of wedding dress makers, entered into a partnership with David's Bridal to develop a line of wedding gowns exclusively for the store. Today she announced that she will also be creating a bridesmaid dress collection for the retailer. WWD reports: "The seven-piece line of dresses in such shades as orchid, amethyst, charcoal and champagne will ship to 250 David Bridal’s stores in late June. But the designer noted “these dresses are not inexpensive,” with a few retailing for $200. (More cost-conscious brides will find a $158 opening price point.) A one-shoulder short dress with a bubble skirt adorned with oversize rosettes is geared for style-minded wedding parties. But there are also more traditional choices such as a short dress with horizontal pleats and a sleeveless chiffon column dress with swag skirt." [WWD]
