The Show: Reem Acra
The Theme: ’70s disco glamour
The Color Palette: Black, Gold, Orange, and Red
The Collection’s Signature, Standout Look: All that glitters was sent down the runway for Reem Acra‘s nightlife inspired collection. While there were a few houndstooth pieces that were grounded in the daytime, it was the party dresses and gowns that really caught our eye. A golden draped one shoulder column dress recalled the glamorous days of Studio 54 and would transform any girl into the reigning queen of the party. Essential ingredients of tulle, chiffon and silk were scattered throughout the final gowns that could easily transition from walking the red carpet to burning up the dance floor.

The Show: Katie Gallagher
The Theme: Soft Sportswear
The Color Palette: Pale Pink, Black, and White
The Collection’s Signature, Standout Look: Katie Gallagher presented a 20 piece lineup that blended soft floral adornments with simple sportswear silhouettes in hues of either white, pale pink or black. Swimwear was scattered throughout the mix as well, drawing on Gallagher’s own athletic background in largely one-piece maillots. A sheer white skirt with flowers sewn on the hem paired with a crossed bandeau top created a soft look that felt particularly appropriate for the spring athlete who likes to showcase her feminine side as well.
