NYBFW- Pay Attention To Details- Power Of Flowers- Reem Acra & Preston Bailey Best Season Show


Reem Acra has been dazzling me and others for years, there is no question about that. Her ads have consistently made bold statements.  She is a designer well ahead of her times. Reem for years has successfully combined the elegance, classic silhouettes with the modern, yet chic style while pushing the bold and edgy sense of bridal fashion since I first discovered her in the late 90’s.

While I may have been an admirer from a distance for some two decades.  The honor of being in the audience now and seeing the evolution of this artist is beyond surreal.

Reem’s work, her artistry is by far  more then spectacular to say the least.  She has EARNED her position as one of the best designers of the bridal and fashion industry.



Preston Bailey, what can we say.  He is a master, second to none when it comes to the art of creating the most exquisite of designs with flowers.

His godly gifts are seen with every piece of work he sends out.  So can you imagine our surprise when we heard that he and the talented Reem Acra would combined forces?  The finally was breathtaking and worthy of every award known to man. Talk about brilliance.  This was the creme de la creme.

It left us all breathless, and yet wanting more and more.



There are certain things in this life that can’t be explained.  This is one of them.  This by far was the best show presented to date.  Brides be inspired.  You deserve all the beauty this life has to offer you.  And it can all be done with flowers.

Bravo Reem Acra and Preston Baily– outstanding work.
