The name of the game at Reem Acra this season? Flower power, and lots of it. Of course, it wouldn't be a Reem Acra show without lovely lace and feminine silhouettes — which, this Fall 2015 collection, had plenty.
Called "Let There Be Light," Reem Acra infused current trends (such as crop tops and a touch of color and even a metallic strapless dress, with an Angelina-style slit) with tried-and-true classics. A traditional element, which was a bit surprising from the designer of soft intricately embellished pieces, was richer ball gown skirts. Yet, even for the fuller pieces crafted from thicker fabrics, there was a delicate finish with petals of flowers and shimmering trains made of silk georgette trailing behind.

Every detail was as intricate and ornate has her past collections. The laces were re-embroidered and hand-stitched throughout the bodices and along the hem's edges, while crystal beads created a beautiful bridal glow. Shapes were a bit more revealing, with the slit, as mentioned above, sheer cutouts and exposed corsetry.
Flower crowns took new meaning with the 'dos at this runway show. Each look was not only outfitted with a plethora of pretty petals, blooms were pinned in the hairdo and as a halo around an actual crown. Even belts were made from the cascading florals!
