Normally a flurry of activity and organised chaos, the scenes unfolding backstage at Reem Acra this season felt a little different to previous seasons, more serene and dreamy…much like the dresses themselves.
The pace backstage was definitely slower & more relaxed, models sat playing on iPhones while a rim of fine black eyeliner was applied to fresh faces, tapering into a feline flick. The casting this season was one of our favorites, all all wide eyed ingenues, styled with super natural hair and a magenta lip.
Dressers methodically steamed their veils and smoothed over skirts, arranged shoes and finessed head pieces....and we'll be honest, the disco headphones weren't our cup of tea, but we loved the slightly more ethereal silhouettes with sheer layers and the botanical embellishment of last season continued in this collection.
