It’s about the shapes, the cutouts, the make-believe.’ You can be totally sure to live the most memorable day on your wedding wearing any of these gorgeous gowns!
The delicate way of exposing skin is one of the focuses of the Reem Acra bridal fall/winter 2015-2016 collection, which was spotted from the very beginning of the show, when we saw a minimalist duo of a straight long skirt worn with a matching crop top with embroidered short sleeves. It was a modern take on a modest bridal gown, the white color of which was the main traditional detail preserved. The same midriff-exposing trend was kept for a number of looks to come, which came to prove that separates could also look elegant for a wedding. Especially stunning was the super-slim long-sleeved lace crop top matched with a high-waisted full skirt, being a perfect alternative for princess gowns.
Revealing skin, Reem Acra still managed to keep the right proportions of elegance, modesty and femininity bringing the ideal shapes that only enhanced the models’ beautiful figures. If there was no midriff exposed, we saw sultry ribbon sleeves, see-through lace tops, deep plunging necklines or super-high slits. Lavish embroidery, flower appliqués and draping were other techniques that triumphed during the show.
The Reem Acra brides resembled light flower ladies in fall, and it was not only due to the lightweight and ethereal organza, silk, lace and tulle, but also the big abundance of pink and white flowers used as draped belts, bracelets and headbands to decorate the looks. There was also a nod to the roaring twenties: a couple of dresses featured straight shapes and draped flapper beads and sequins that gave drama and glamour to their humble shapes.
While white was the primary shade of the dresses, we also saw some beautiful interpretations of Champagne, which solemnly closed the show. Wholly, the Reem Acra bridal fall/winter 2015-2016 collection is undoubtedly one of the most inspirational bridal lines for finding dramatic, romantic and whimsical wedding dresses for the coming cold season and not only!
