Gothic Grandeur from Reem Acra at New York Fashion Week

Glitter, shimmer, glisten = SWOON.

Cathy Donohue

Reem Acra showcased her latest collection at New York Fashion Week yesterday and not for the first time, the Lebanese designer bowled us over.

Acra has a flair for designing feminine show-stopping dresses and manages to marry elegance with modernity in an effortless manner.

While shimmering princess gowns are always high on her list, think Elie Saab or Zuhair Murad but with a daring edge, the pieces presented in yesterday’s show were more dramatic than usual.

Gothic style mini-dresses and flowing ethereal gowns in shades of crimson, silver and gold were adorned with intricate embellishment.

Acra is always one to watch when it comes to fashion week and we’re likely to be gushing about this collection for weeks to come.
