If last season’s collection was bohemian, Reem Acra took a different route for fall, channeling a moody goddess. By going back further to the ’20s and ’20s, she finds inspiration in the darkness of these two decades and focuses on rich, earthy tones. Swatches jewel tones.
“You have to train yourself to be inspired all the time,” says Acra, who started his red carpet styling business at 1997. She has a keen eye for the world and new trends Observation, and thus the ability to present your brand to a new generation of clients who may not be familiar with the red carpet and glamor. Standout looks included understated neckline looks paired with tousled models and smoky eyes in the coveted Chloë Sevigny look. Others, by contrast, had a signature Acra vibe, regal ornate, including a gown with sleeves designed like opera gloves. “Some are understated and some are overstated. There is something for everyone because we listen to our clients and understand their needs,” says the designer. “This is the key to my business.”
