Reem Acra Bridal Spring 2019

“We are blessed by the angels.”—Khalil Gibran

Reem Acra always finds a way to infuse her collections—ready-to-wear or bridal—with garments that reflect her Middle Eastern heritage. For those that are unaware Reem Acra hails from Lebanon.

For her spring 2019 bridal collection Reem Acra took inspiration from Lebanese writer and poet Khalil Gibran, and specifically his best-selling book of 26 prose poetry fables, The Prophet. The Prophet deals with themes of love, marriage, children, work, joy, sorrow, freedom, clothing, reason, passion, friendship, beauty, pleasure, religion, death and a plethora of other issues and subjects. Khalil Gibran is the third best-selling poet of all time behind Shakespeare and Laozi.Reem Acra’s spring 2019 bridal collection, entitled “The Prophet Collection,” was angelic, ethereal, and elegant with each gown having some sort of heavenly dispensation moniker—Divine Dream, Celestial Enchantment, Winds of Heaven, Flock of Angels, Dance of Heavens, Gate to Eternity, Essence of Joy. Each model was crowned with a floral wreath of baby’s breath, resembling angels descending from paradise.

This very strong bridal collection was stocked full of bridal ball gown silhouettes, similar to the main silhouette that Reem Acra used last season. And though this collection was quite classic in nature, conjuring images of Audrey Hepburn in “Sabrina” or “Roman Holiday” and Grace Kelly, Reem Acra did inject a bit of modern sensuality and sexiness in this bridal outing. This sensuality was made evident by Reem Accra intricate embellishments and very sheer and diaphanous fabrics from silk chiffon and organza to tulle.
