After gaining international recognition for her atelier, Reem Acra, a Lebanese bridal designer turned ready to wear designer, has become one of the leading names for luxury garments and high end ready to wear dresses. Her designs are carried in more that 100 of the most exclusive retailers, such as Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus, around the world; and have been featured in magazines like In Style, Vogue, Women's Wear Daily and W.
Her signature boutique can be found on Madison Avenue in New York City. It houses designs that combine modern and elegant flawlessly.
Her international background, studies in Paris and New York led her first to bridal design in which she had enormous success. From here it was only one step to designing evening gowns that are now worn by the biggest celebrities in the world.
She loves to use embroidery, delicate bead work of crystals and pearls as well as rich fabrics. Her attention to detail and her unique fabric combination result in sophisticated, elegant, stylish, feminine dresses that celebrate a woman's body. Her dresses are timeless through their classical lines yet manage to be modern, meeting the needs of today’s woman.
