For Fall 2019, Reem Acra showcased ultra-romantic gowns elevated by statement-making veils. Traditional silhouettes and accompanying accessories were embroidered with floral motifs, making the collection extravagant in the best of ways.
Shot at an 11th century monastery in Umbria, Italy, Daphne Newman's 2018 lookbook captures the dramatic, moody, and delicate nature of the new collection. The ancient facades of historic Umbrian sites are perfectly juxtaposed against Newman's feminine and ethereal designs. Her heirloom-quality veils speak to the bride who wants something dramatic and timeless, and rather than simply choosing a veil as an afterthought to her gown, she opts for a statement-making piece that will be passed down and cherished for generations to come.
