NY Bridal Week: Reem Acra

Ready for a plot twist?  During Reem Acra’s NY Bridal Week presentation on Tuesday, the designer sent 12 unexpected dresses down the runway.



Reem Acra’s Spring 2018 NY Bridal Week presentation incorporated a collaborative effort with Tiffany’s of New York (and held at Tiffany’s of New York), so the bridal models were dripping in jewels, along with their already beautiful gowns.  But the designer also showed a surprise when she sent 12 black dresses down the bridal runway.

Black wedding dresses?  Yes.  And they are amazing!  Buy let’s begin with the more traditional gowns…

















Other than a few contemporary silhouettes, and some ‘interesting’ graphic bridal veils, these traditional looks are what is to be expected from Reem Acra for a bridal collection.  But then, Reem starts slipping in a few touches of black…










Reem then goes fully into unconventional bride zone with black dresses and diamonds, and I’m not mad at her for it!














And finally, turning out another play with color, the grand finale dress is this blue and gold regal gown…



I love a play with colors for bridal dresses, and a show like this is refreshing.  What do you think?
