Reem Acra is a Lebanese fashion designer who founded her namesake label in 1997. The brand began when Acra designed and produced a dress for a friend’s wedding in just three weeks. The friends had joked that if she finished the dress in time, the bride would go ahead with the wedding. From here, Reem Acra began producing her own collections, mentored by Max Kane who owned a factory in New York, where the label is still based. Since then, the label expanded from bridalwear alone, to also encompass eveningwear which has proven a mainstay on the red carpet, seen on Angelina Jolie, Taylor Swift and Kate Hudson.
Known for their glamorous and elegant aesthetic, Reem Acra produces opulent collections with an enchanting appeal. Luxurious fabrics are met with ornate details and expert cuts to offer exquisite gowns, dresses and separates. Traditional elements are combined with a modern discernment which results in classic pieces as well as designs with a high-fashion appeal. Bridal gowns have an ethereal quality which feature intricate lace and embellishments, sumptuous fabrics and timeless silhouettes to produce unparalleled beauty. Sequined cape dresses, asymmetric evening gowns and perfectly draped designs feature metallic finishes, crystal embellishments and a striking appeal. For any special occasion, Reem Acra provides impeccable, show-stopping designs.
A selection of Reem Acra designs can be accessed via Net-a-Porter. For wider collections, Reem Acra has a boutique in New York, and appointments can be made through the brand’s website.
