Reem Acra opted for pompous baroque items. This fashion trend is characteristic by the use of lace, gold and silver embroidery, burgundy and purple color shades, expensive fabrics and striking decor elements.
Bustier cocktail dresses
And here’s the classic of cocktail fashion. The short sleeveless and collarless dresses, or dresses with bustier that look very impressive because they bare not only female legs, but also their neck and shoulders. Cocktail dresses with bustier can be executed in different ways, in different fabrics and colors, as demonstrated by modern designers presentations. For example, Oscar de la Renta included in his collection flared dresses in bright colors, while Saint Laurent opted for bold fitted silhouette.
As regards the choice of decor elements and trimming, modern designers have shown an enviable fantasy and imagination.

However, they were not limited to that, embellishing their creations with playful fringes, fluffy feathers, fur applications, perforations, detachable collar and butterflies. And we are not talking about using just one type of trim. Most designers showed dresses as if they were created by different pieces of fabric. To understand what this is about, it is enough to see Valentino clothes line, where in one outfit could be used leather, mesh, fringes, chiffon and lace.
Moreover, Versace, Valentino launched full collections of dresses with extravagant embroideries and prints. Here you can also see meanders images with hash-tags, the famous geometric print that in the new cold season broke all records of popularity. In addition, very often could be seen dresses with marine, vegetal and abstract ornaments.
