Vera Wang is famous for combining couture-worthy craftsmanship with the practicality of American ready-to-wear, and her fall collection was true to her roots. It consisted of classic, elegant pieces in rich materials, cut with careful precision. Wang showed stretch tweed suits, cashmere pullovers, black crocodile coats and gabardine pleated skirtsand they all worked together. But Wang never forgets that she is most famous for her eveningwear, and she did not disappoint: There were square sequin gowns, chiffon halters, cashmere robes and a couple of show-stopping, neon-colored scarf dresses.
