Reem Acra, fashion designer

Description:

A true luxury lover, Acra delights in making women look and feel beautiful. Her regal designs are developed with a modern aesthetic. The eveningwear, bridal and ready-to-wear collections all evoke a quality, which appeals to a discerning clientele including celebrities, royalty, and style setting women from all corners of the world.

In 1997, Acra launched her fashion business with a bridal collection that quickly became recognized for its elegance and impeccable designs. This success led to the introduction of the Reem Acra evening collection six years later. Similar to its bridal counterpart, it features meticulously constructed designs ranging from understated chic to ornate gowns. In spring 2008, Acra brought her aesthetic into the ready-to-wear realm with distinctly modern designs that are marked by rich color, lush fabrics, flawless construction and playful patterns.

While attending the American University of Beirut, Acra was discovered by a fashion editor. Captivated with the intricately embroidered silk organza gown Acra made from her mother’s dining room tablecloth and wore to a party, she instantly offered to host a fashion show for Acra that took place ten days later. Following the serendipitous encounter, Acra studied at The Fashion Institute of Technology in New York and its Paris counterpart at Esmod.

A short stint as an interior designer was followed by Acra’s return to her fashion roots working in Hong Kong and New York. A style-setting friend wore Acra’s first bridal design to her society wedding and it sparked international interest for the designer and Reem Acra Bridal was born. The gowns became renowned for transforming classic bridal designs through the finest silks, intricate beading and exquisite embroidery.

Celebrated for her ability to match a look to a woman’s personality, Acra has dressed global style icons for weddings, red carpet events, and award ceremonies, including: Angelina Jolie, Halle Berry, Beyonce Knowles, Catherine Zeta Jones, and Eva Longoria - as well as royal families around the world.

Acra’s bridal, evening and ready-to-wear collections are carried by 150 of the world's most exclusive retailers. These stores include Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue (US and Dubai), as well as Harvey Nichols (Hong Kong, Asia and the Middle East.) Her designs are also available at top retailers in Kuwait, Bahrain Riyadh, Dubai, and Istanbul as well as Singapore and Korea, and in other Asian cities.

The Reem Acra Showroom is located at 730 Fifth Avenue, Second Floor, New York, New York, 10019
