Fashion Week: Reem Acra

February 14, 2012 by Lila Delilah

Fashion Notes:
With the red backdrop and black graphite runway, designer Reem Acra was setting the mood for a fierce show. The collection was inspired by feminine power and she did a fabulous job creating fearless female looks for evening. The show started out with leather outfits that accentuated all the beautiful parts of a woman’s body and then came a traffic of chic black dresses, followed by what she does best – striking evening gowns.

Key Looks:
Tweed jackets and pencil skirts, black dresses, sequined pocket lines and collars, form fitting gowns in sequins

Leather dresses that accentuate the curves, geometric effect (from embroidered lines), beautiful cuts and negative space created with skin-like fabric

Leather, silk chiffon, metallic

Overall impression:
Reem Acra really understands woman’s body and meticulously constructs her clothes for those who are confident to show off all they have, inside and out. It is obvious that her expertise is in creating embellished gowns that just float across the floor and turn heads
