shu pei for vera wang, spring
by Jeremy Danté
represented by next models ny, chinese female model, shu pei, is the face of vera wang for the summer/spring 2011 season. seen here are images that were shot in promotion of the ready-to-wear collection, eyewear collection & bridal collections designed by vera wang. the images are fitting for the label & i love that vera wang, as a chinese/american womenswear designer, has opted to go with a chinese model. as popularly discussed in both writing & verbally during my weekly fashion report segment; the rising demand for luxury in asia is directly influencing the world of fashion. from oriental inspired collections for the house of louis vuitton, to the casting of more asian female models- it’s really a special time for ethnic models & designers alike. beautifully shot by carter smith, styling for the campaign was done by lori goldstein. a fitting campaign for the wang label.
