NEW YORK — Vera Wang is turning her attention to Asia.
Although no deals have been signed, Mario Grauso, president of Vera Wang, confirmed the company’s interest in opening freestanding stores in Asia, with boutiques most likely to open in Japan first. “We’re working on it. We’re not close enough to anything to discuss it. There are no term sheets out,” he said.
