Reem Acra started to love fashion from a very young age. Acra was born in Beirut, Lebanon but is world traveled. A live-in seamstress and shopping in the open air marketplaces of Beirut sparked her interest in fashion as a child. As a teenager Acra was discovered by a woman who convinced her to join the fashion club at the American University in Beirut after seeing her wearing a dress she had made from a tablecloth. After attending school at the American University, Acra studied at the Fashion Institute of Technology in both New York and Paris. She has also worked in Hong Kong.
In 1997 Reem Acra started her fashion business with her now famous bridal line. Her dresses are inspired and beautifully detailed. Made from the finest silks, embroidered exquisitely, and delicately beaded, Acra’s dresses stand out as luxury bridal gowns.
Acra has a personal affinity for fabrics that are luxurious, of unique texture, bold and rich colors, and anything handmade or beaded. Her personal style is reflected in each of the gowns she designs. Her philosophy is to design gowns for modern women that appreciate classic style and sophistication. Acra’s gowns appeal to women who love style and are looking for the perfect bridal gown that radiates glamour and elegance for that special day.

It is obvious when looking at the collection that Acra leaves no stone unturned when designing these gowns. Acra designs gowns of many different silhouettes including A-line, ball gown, sleek, and with or without a train. Acra is known for designing gowns that directly reflect a bride’s personality.
