Another entry into fall's 1970's luxe glam trend. Reem Acra's fall 2015 collection at NY Fashion Week was inspired by the bohemian and Gothic queens of the decade. There were coats and dresses of crushed velvet or lace. The palette ranged from textured blacks to cool rose and metallic silver and gold.
For the most part, hemlines were relatively short. There were a lot of above-the-knee skirts throughout the entire runway. I was rather surprised by this. This collection was made for red carpets. I thought I would see more sweeping gowns. This totally reminded me of being in portfolio class at Parsons My illustration teacher would always come down on you for showing a fall/winter collection with too many bare legs and short skirts.

Leather pieces and slick waved hair reminded me of Bianca Jagger as an urban counterpart to the dark flower child looks that Stevie Nicks inspired. The luxurious fabrics of silk faille, velvet, pleated organza, lace and swiss dots lets you know this collection is intended for the jetsetting Bohemian, not the grungy, casual kind.
I found the Reem Acra fall 2015 collection absolutely gorgeous. It had all of my favorite fabrics and so many looks were encrusted with delicious embroidery. This designer was after my own heart...
