Reem Acra is known for her quirky bridal styles and sense of humour, so we were expecting great things from this designer’s SS2011 bridalwear collection.
However, although traditional styles were updated, straight dresses given ruffles and puff dresses given uneven hems, some of the range was simple and wearable.
Vintage got a nod thanks to the straight lace designs, as did puff dresses, which were adorned with tulle and traditional beading. Bows and delicate sparkles set the soft tone for the collection as did strands of gold and ivory fabrics.
However, the designer’s sense of humour did show through at the catwalk show with models marching down in bunny ears and Lady Gaga style headpieces. We’re not ashamed to admit we’re seriously considering those bunny ears.
