The wedding queen is filing for divorce, it has been announced. Vera Wang and her husband of 23 years, Arthur Becker, are separating.
Vera Wang president, Mario Grauso, said yesterday: "Vera Wang and Arthur Becker have mutually and amicably agreed to separate. They remain devoted parents to their daughters."
The power couple married in 1989, when Wang was still working with Ralph Lauren as their women's accessories and at-home wear designer. The following year Wang ventured on her own to open a signature salon The Carlyle Hotel.
Although the Vera started her wedding empire herself, it is said that Becker helped his wife to transform her fashion line into the multimillion-dollar business that it is today. In the last couple of years Becker has taken a more active role in the day to day operations of Vera Wang, as well.
WWD is reporting that the divorce will not affect the running of the company: "They have worked too hard to build it up," said a source close to the couple.
