Reem Acra - Pre-Fall 2008
(NEW YORK) Reem Acra opened a glistening jewelry box with her Pre-Fall 2008 collection. Rich jewel tones with intricate beadwork and crystal embellishment dominated. "I want things to be more and more luxurious with a sense of couture sophistication," said Acra, who dyed her own fabrics. The combinations of color created an elegant contrast; a brown silk chiffon gown with a blush hand-draped top was stunning, while a silk satin-faced chiffon long skirt in chocolate was combined with a lamé draped bustier for a luxe candy wrapper effect. Little black dresses abounded in varying hemlines, while gowns in purple and blue night added pizzazz to evening.
