If life does, in fact, imitate art, Vera Wang’s suggestion Tuesday that her company’s new president, Mario Grauso, stand “towering” in the background for a photo session while she sit with a bird’s-eye view of her SoHo store’s intricate mix may very well capture the new pairing.
Grauso on Oct. 16 will take over the executive reins of the firm, freeing up Wang to focus more on the creative side. The designer had been seeking to fill that roll for the last five years.
