Vera Wang China and Crystal - the designer's first foray into the world of home fashion - is a natural extension given the designer's brilliant instinct for all things bridal. Fine bone china and crystal stemware form one of the cornerstones of a couple's bridal registry; Vera Wang China and Crystal, launched in late 2002, pays tribute to this tradition but is designed with the modern bride in mind. Crafted for the realities of entertaining, Vera Wang China and Crystal offers classic, elegant and sophisticated styles that are safe for the microwave and dishwasher. The collection has achieved record success, producing three of the top ten best-selling patterns at bridal registries across the United States in just six months at retail. The introduction of lifestyle collections such as barware, votives, frames, vases and other gifts moves the collection from bridal registry to everyday living and celebrating.
