Wedding Dress Collection: Reem Acra’s “Love from New York”
Inspired by the city of New York, Reem Acra’s ‘Love from New York’ Fall 2020 collection is modern and fun, but underlined with a reassuring, classic feel. With a mixture of fabrics, silhouettes and features, like The Big Apple itself, there’s something for everyone. I’ve chosen my 5 Star favourite five, and you can find the full collection here.
An off the shoulder bodice sparkles with delicate beading, twisting at the centre, while the more traditional fit and flare shape is created in gorgeously soft Mikado silk.
With a structured bodice providing the tradition, this one colours outside the lines with an all-over sparkling sequin pattern that reaches up to beaded straps and stretches down across the light tulle to a pretty train.
With a hint of 20s glamour, this stunning show stopper is covered in gold sequins. With an additional sparkling band across the chest and tiny straps to provide a cold shoulder cut, this one is made to dazzle on Broadway.
Strapless georgette, this dress is pure modern simplicity. A wrapped feel and high split bring the tailoring, and a long train adds drama.
Downtown Girl and Uptown Girl
These cute numbers add some fun to the collection. I love the simple styling – draped sequins over one and gold metallic lace over the other – a similar, strapless cut with two very different feels.
