Reem Acra - Lebanese Fashion Designer

Sumptuous, elegant, graceful, and insanely chic - that summarizes a Reem Acra creation. Her designs are works of romantic art, capturing a sensual yet sophisticated feeling. Each gown exudes her innate sense of style, and we are just smitten.

Acra is internationally known for her impeccable and exquisite bridal gowns. She has long been a favorite designer

for stars on the red carpet and her bridal line is just as fabulous and eye catching as her ready-to-wear collection. Her amazing skilled use of embroidery, a craft she honed as a young child living with her grandmother in Beirut, sets her designs apart. Her design philosophy is simple: combine appreciation for the traditional and classical elements of the bridal world with the modern, fashion-forward sensibilities of today’s bride.

Her gowns possess unique features: intricate gold bullion needlework, delicate bead-work of minuscule Swarovski crystals, and the application of seed pearls. But it is her use of shadow embroidery that is particularly swoonworthy. She is a master at using laser-cutting, three-dimensional appliques, and flocked discs. Need we say more? Her skills are original, yet highly stylized. Fabrics such as confetti lace, jacquard, organza,charmeuse , taffeta, and chiffon all blend seamlessly in her creations. And best of all, her gowns have amazing silhouettes that move with the wearer.

The Reem Acra bridal signature line has influenced a variety of wedding trends and her creations appeal to brides of individual style who are looking for a bold sense of style on their wedding day.
