Reem Acra designs beautiful womens wear that epitomizes feminine glamour and beauty. With her Fall/Winter 2012 runway show at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, she was inspired by and focused on “feminine power” to enhance her standard evening gown looks.
To achieve the powerfully feminine look, Reem Acra decided to add elements of leather, lace and chiffons.
The show began with a bold, structured hunter green leather dress & finished with an ornately embroidered evening gown. Though the two styles are seemingly not cohesive with each other, you quickly realize that the entire runway show began with a day look and progressed into an elegant night look.
LOTS OF LEATHER
The show began with well-tailored leather sheath dresses. Tailored jackets, pencil skirts, gloves and purses all came down in matching rich shades of leather.
The leather pieces were followed by beautiful coats and blazers in ebony and metallics, continuing the theme of the sophisticated badass look. Amazing fitted jackets were seen with sculpted sleeves and classic tweed blazers were finished with lovely sequin embellishments.
The looks transitioned smoothly to cocktail hour favourites. A few knee length sheath dresses with drop waists and sequin details were followed by long sleeved mini dresses with shiny metallic patterns.
The show finished with stunning full length gowns, featuring silks, tulle, and detailed embroidery. Large cutouts were featured and shining metallic details covered entire dresses, for a showstopping night look.
