The promenade in Bryant Park filled to the max with fashionistas, photographers, celebs, and writers, Sunday afternoon for a glimpse of Reem Acra’s Spring 2008 collection. Lyrical music surged through the crowded tent as seventeen models showcased Acra’s much anticipated line. Known for her delicate and feminine wedding dresses and evening gowns, Acra added a lovely twist through the combination of daring color: purple and yellow, green and purple, floral prints, hard black and shimmery gold. Most of the outfits were accompanied with a daring accessory—a purple dress with a thick yellow belt. She also paired airy, silk, see-through blouses with long, tapered skirts of the same color, cinched together with a belt of a different shade. Acra’s collection culminated with sexier, more elaborate, regal pieces with high collars and ruffles. Her collection proved why she is so respected for her elegant work.
