Reem Acra on her Fall 2014 collection:
"'Going Global': That is the attitude and aesthetic of the Reem Acra Fall 2014 Bridal Collection. As Reem travels overseas to emerging and exciting destinations, she is acutely aware that many brides-to-be are actually doing the same thing.
Today's women have a busy, high tech schedule which keeps them constantly on the move. Destination weddings, exotic venues, and untraditional locales, are becoming the norm as women juggle a hectic career driven lifestyle. Addressing that, Reem Acra has infused this new exciting bridal collection with all of the expectations and excitement for that special day: Silhouette plays an important role this season.
Clean, A-line shapes, the simplest strapless columns, and soft, fit and flare wedding dresses, are infused with signature elements of hand embroidery and appliquéd detail that her followers have come to expect. Tulle layering lends a romance and ethereal quality to many of the gowns, which when combined with crystal and metallic threadwork, create a visually stunning statement.
Texture also plays an important role this season. Using combinations of organza, tulle, and silk gazar, the couture craftsmanship and attention to detail shines through. Interest in re-embroidered lace continues, but when molded, and appliquéd in her own unique way, she evokes a modern take on this classic tradition.
Refreshingly unique in its variety of options, and done in a way that is totally her own, this luxurious, glamorous and dramatic Reem Acra Fall 2014 collection is the culmination of which dreams and memories are made of.
