Vera Wang (b. 1949) is an American fashion designer, who competed in junior pairs skating with partner James Stuart as a teenager. Although she is best known for her wedding gowns, she has also designed skating costumes for many elite-level skaters.
She began skating at age 8, winning regional championships by age 12. She teamed up with James Stuart, and together they competed twice at the United States Figure Skating Championships, winning 5th in juniors in 1968. She was coached by Sonya Dunfield. After 1969, James Stuart chose to focus on singles skating, and Vera Wang went to college, eventually pursuing a career in fashion.
