The start of Reem Acra's career in fashion was truly serendipitous. As a student at the American University of Beirut, she crafted a gown from her mother's table cloth and wore it to a party. Her design was spotted by a fashion editor who was so impressed with her work that he offered to host a fashion show for her. Following the success of the show, Acra studied in New York at the Fashion Institute of Technology and in Paris at École supérieure des arts et techniques de la mode (ESMOD).
Later, a friend of Acra's - a fabulous woman of society - wore her very first bridal design to her wedding which led to international recognition and interest in Acra's designs. Reem Acra Bridal was born and the rest, as they say, is history.[caption id="attachment_201" align="aligncenter" width="242"] The famous Oliva Wilde gown - fun fact - Blush Bridal owner, Nicole, wore this gown on her wedding day![/caption] [caption id="attachment_200" align="aligncenter" width="241"] Lace crop top with ball gown skirt - Winter 2015 Collection[/caption] [caption id="attachment_202" align="aligncenter" width="250"] Taylor Swift in Reem Acra[/caption]
