Reem Acra, a brand exclusively for bridal and evening wear, shows at both Fall and Spring Bridal Week's in New York. This season, namesake designer Reem Acra showed her talent at making high fashion frocks that are still accessible and therefore salable. Even the formal suiting, which one might see as a non-traditional offering, could easily be pitched to wedding planners as chic reception-wear or modern suiting for the mother of the bride. Otherwise, the gowns came in every silhouette and would have suited a plethora of brides. Our favorites were the 1970's inspired pleat-front gown and the long, slinky pleated gown (left) that came thereafter. These pieces called up a subject Reem Acra is most articulate on, that is, those old, romantic visions of what a wedding dress should look like.
