In addition to sending down some of the most powerful leather pencil skirts and matching leather tops imaginable, Reem Acra also paraded a slew of gorgeous gowns down the runway for her fall 2012 show. The show opened with the above mentioned separates, followed by cashmere crew knit sweaters and wool and herringbone shifts with beaded detailing.
But then: the gowns. Two of them were nearly impossible to walk in (a slit would have been helpful), but besides that, we could only hope to one day have the occasion—and the disposable income—to snag one. There was an ebony embroidered silk chiffon long-sleeve gown that stole our hearts, as well as the final number, an ebony sunburst one-shoulder in silk crepe and tulle. Take a look through the gallery above for those, as well as other highlights from the collection.
