“I wanted to say that you can have fun at your wedding,” said Reem Acra after her romantic fall show. “You can be sexy, sensual. It’s about the shapes, the cutouts, the make-believe.”
She made her point with the show’s opening look: a short-sleeve, embroidered cropped top in silk georgette with a matching skirt. Acra draped her brides in cascading pink and white flowers, even weaving them through their hair with battery-operated lights. (The collection was dubbed “Let There Be Light.”) Ornate corsets and embroidered lace tops worn with voluminous silk taffeta ball skirts heightened the drama, while sexy, sheer-illusion dresses showed off Acra’s signature, lavish embroidery.
