Fashion Week: Reem Acra
Vivid colors and dramatic silhouettes epitomize Reem Acra's Spring 2008 collection, as the renowned eveningwear (and bridal) designer sent down the runway an array of luxurious dresses and gowns that are splashed in techni-colors.
Acra's approach in exploring her theme this season, "the theory of rejuvenation," involves rich satin, silk, and organza numbers that are splashed with bright colors that literally cover the spectrum of the rainbow.
Prints come in dramatic rose and polka dot prints, accented with contrasting silk or satin belts. A twisted chiffon gown in Pearl with beautiful, beaded necklace sleeves evokes a fairy-tale like aura to the collection.
Acra's pieces are not for the faint of heart, for her designs all touch upon the princesses in all of us.
