This season, renowned bridal designer Reem Acra has teamed up with celebrity event planner Preston Bailey for a unique collaborative collection. Widely recognized as one of the world’s top wedding planners, Bailey is known for his ability to create lush, theatrical events.
Titled ‘The Celebration Collection’, this capsule contains over 30 bridal and ready-to-wear looks perfect for brides, bridesmaids and wedding guests alike. Colourful, tea length bridal gowns with matching veils set the collection apart from conventional bridal colour palettes, yet kept to classic silhouettes that brides will love.
Over the top embellishment in the form of feathers, lace and three dimensional floral appliques can be found throughout the collection, as well as full length capes and veils for brides looking to add some dramatic impact. Lace is a key component in many of the bridal looks, along with light and airy chiffon, silk organza and tulle that played up the ethereal factor of Bailey’s swoon-worthy setting.
“I loved the idea of combining my ready-to-wear with bridal for The Celebration Collection–injecting color and fun into the show,” said designer Reem Acra. “Partnering with Preston to create the set was a true honour and joy, as a Preston Bailey event is an event like no other.”
