Reports have been circulating in the market that the duo would eventually want to finance another designer once Kors went public. And a few sources indicated that Vera Wang could be on their wish list. Wang and Chou are very good family friends, and sources said they have held conversations. But Wang is probably a year or two away from wanting to monetize her business, which is heavily weighted toward a licensed model. Wang has an apparel and accessories collection with Kohl’s, a deal with David’s Bridal and Zale’s, and numerous fragrance, beauty, accessories and home licenses, in addition to her directly owned wedding gown and ready-to-wear business.
