Reem Acra Fall 2012 Runway Show


I attended the Reem Acra Fall 2012 runway show during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, my first time seeing this designer whom I've long admired for her incredible bridal wear. But there wasn't even so much as a hint of white in this collection, which was inspired by feminine power of a different sort. The show started with a lot of leather, mixed with underpinnings of lace and chiffon. Each bold look was so intricate that it was hard to absorb (the models walk by so fast), but the effect was impressive. My favorite looks were thigh-high cocktail dresses and glitzy red-carpet gowns - it's hard not to be wowed by these types of pieces on the runway, even if they have no chance of ever fitting into my own closet and lifestyle. Just pure fashion fireworks.

I cannot get enough of metallics, sequins and/or sparkles. This collection is dreamy.
