Vera Wang's 'dark romance' for next winter

NEW YORK (AFP) - Vera Wang, fashion designer to the Hollywood A-list, on Tuesday unveiled her 2014 fall/winter collection inspired by "dark romance" and "a hint of mystery".

Wang, whose evening wear and bridal gowns are highly coveted by the most famous women in Tinseltown, told AFP that her runway show was perhaps the most personal of her long career.

"Dark romance, it's my true spirit," she said. "We change, we're affected by the world, films, art, sport, books... but this time for me it was really, really personal."

She said her 40 years in fashion had been built on a reputation for a certain type of eccentricity combined with sensuality, and of a gender-bending mix in her silhouettes.
