Bridal Fashion Week: Reem Acra’s Spring 2018 Collection

By Alexandra Macon

Walking into Tiffany & Co.’s flagship store on Fifth Avenue for Reem Acra’s Spring 2018 show reminded me of the scene in Sweet Home Alabama when Reese Witherspoon enters the same iconic building and is proposed to by Patrick Dempsey while salesmen and women stand at attention behind their respective counters. “Pick one,” he tells her, as the salespeople take out their trays . So needless to say, the space screams bridal and was the perfect venue for the designer to celebrate her brand’s twentieth year in business. The looks that stole the show? The robin’s egg blue ball gown embellished with gold embroidery was the next to last look to come down the runway, and it definitely evoked some gasps. And, the finale look—a satin “go big or go home” dress with diamond earrings and dragonfly brooches affixed to it also made a statement. Clocking in at $1,611,144 it’s not realistic, but can definitely serve as inspo for the bride who’s looking to incorporate a little—or a lot—of bling into her look.
