Vera Wang: The unique success story of an icon
The career of Wang is unique. He is characterized by a burning passion for fashion and persistent assertiveness. Compared to other designers, her international breakthrough was a long time coming. Born as the daughter of Chinese immigrants, Wang first saw the light of day on 27 June 1949 in Manhatten, New York City. At that 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.
