After all the fuss that erupted over the web regarding Vera Wang's bridal boutique in China charging customers $482 for a 90-minute wedding dress try-on sesh, the designer herself has spoken out about it!
In statement released on Tuesday Vera said:
"Upon careful investigation and review of the policies of our international operators, we will be abolishing appointment fees in all of our stores. We wish for all Vera Wang customers to enjoy the same standard of excellence worldwide. Treating our customers in a fair and equitable way remains a priority. The store in Shanghai has only been open to private VIP preview appointments. The official opening to the public will take place on April 29."
No more try-on fees! Isn't that awesome???
And it just goes to show that raising a ruckus on the internet really does accomplish things sometimes!
So hurray for all the women who want to try on dresses without paying almost $500 to do so!
Today is truly a victorious day for all brides-to-be! Let us rejoice!
