CCTV America’s Shraysi Tandon interviewed iconic fashion designer Vera Wang just before Mercedes Benz Fashion Week about the challenges of working in a male-dominated fashion industry.
Tandon asked Wang one more question, about what her biggest influence is in her creative work:
“One of the things that influences me the most is our culture, the American culture, probably more now than every before. I mean a lot of designers are focused on Paris, there’s no question. But I think for me, at this particular time, in this particular decade, the American sense of style has yet again come to the forefront,” Wang said.
“It very much influences me: What’s going on in media, what’s going on in media, what’s going on in film, what’s going on in Hollywood. All of these factors are contributing to how I view where we’re going and hence what I’m doing. Culturally it’s a very American time right now. In terms of business, it’s the decade of China.”
