Shopping: Vera Wang's all-red bridal collection comes to L.A.
Vera Wang showed her entire spring 2013 bridal collection in shades of red at New York bridal week a few days ago. This week, local brides will have a chance to see and shop the collection in L.A. Wang looked east toward China for inspiration, creating the gowns in shades of cinnabar, cherry, scarlet and burgundy. Brides can choose those hues or traditional whites or ivory. The collection will be on view this Thursday through Saturday at Vera Wang Bridal House, 8445 Melrose Ave., West Hollywood. For an appointment, call (323) 602-0174.
