It has been a slow moving Monday as we make plans for the upcoming long weekend here in Ireland and I can’t quite believe that this week will see us officially welcome Summer…. like come on!! It’s been a long Spring and the trees are only just starting to show some life the past few days but I have been enjoying the cherry blossoms and the brighter weather. So, to get the week moving we are continuing on our look back over some of the worlds finest wedding dress designers and the beautiful pieces they showcased last week at New York Bridal Week. This afternoon, Reem Acra Bridal Collection for SS 2014 is in the spotlight as we feature some of her show stoppers, a few of which were considered controversial jaw droppers. Inspired by the feminine form, the collection was a feast of sparkling embellishments, barely there illusion bodices and pieces carrying sentiments such as “thank you for your love”. Hemlines varied and perhaps the most talked about dress of the season was Reem Acras mini tutu skirt, that was nearly complete with revealing lace bodice. Models walked the runway carrying pretty parasols draped in flower embellished tulle that served as an alternative to your traditional veil but my favourite? A one shouldered, delicately embellished beauty that you will have to scroll all the way to the end to see!

The figure hugging fishtail enjoyed a revival and there was beautiful variation in the fuller skirted dresses.
