Illusion was key to Reem Acra’s resort. She used sheer tulle to create the look of two pieces out of one dress. A nude panel cut across the shoulder line of a red lace dress, and an elaborately embroidered gold collar was sewn to tulle on the neckline of a black lace gown. The womanly lineup was not short on embellishment that ranged from grand opulence on ballgowns to graphic black-and-white lace on day dresses. Acra also offered an alternative to the little black dress with a series of shift dresses in bright lace.
