Dialed-in as she is with the Los Angeles scene, Vera Wang will make that connection even tighter with next year’s opening of a Rodeo Drive store.
As a go-to designer for red-carpet-bound actresses and VIP brides, Wang has a Hollywood home and spends up to five weeks on the West Coast each year. With the lease for her Melrose Avenue boutique up in a few months, she plans to move into the two-tier, 5,500-square-foot boutique at 428 North Rodeo Drive in January. “So much of my business and my perspective is from and done in Hollywood,” Wang said Thursday.
