Vera Wang is at the forefront of wedding fashion.  So when her new collection comes out, the wedding world watches to see what she comes up with.  For her Spring 2012 collection, she played off black and nude undergarments.  Vera describes the collection as “both mysterious and sexy, frivolous and fun, with transparent wisps of carefully organized tulle.”  The collection will be in the NYC boutique in late October and LA to follow.
