Reem Acra’s Fall/Winter 2012 focused on “Feminine Power” the idea that all women should be confident in their own skin and whatever they wear. Reem Acra’s namesake brand certainly resonate that effortless confidence that all women possess and empowers all women to show off their personal style. Reem Acra’s F/W 2012 collection was a juxtaposition of strength and femininity, creating that modern woman who’s not afraid to show her style.
Throughout the collection metallic was an overall theme apparent in each piece that came down the runway, but done so skillfully that it never became redundant; in fact whether applied as the entire look or applied as a trim metallic enhanced the fluidity of each ensemble giving the illusion that some pieces could have been painted on just by the way it hugged the model’s figure so well. One particular dress that illustrates the skillful construction of Reem Acra’s design was this “multi-sequin starburst V-neck gown”, reflecting an art deco design it was so effortless but such an eye-catching gown as the light hit it from different angles. Another breath-taking gown was the “Ebony Diamond embroidered silk chiffon gown”, it was figure flattering and an undeniable show stopper; the construction was impeccable.
Reem Acra’s return to the center stage of New York Fashion Week after a short hiatus could not have been more successful with a Fall/Winter 2012 collection so stunning that all of fashion is buzzing with anticipation to see what the designer will bring for the next season. I for one am giddy with excitement to see how Reem Acra will follow up such an impressive season.
