Vintage Reem Acra Wedding Gown
One-of-a-Kind Custom Design with Gold Embroidery
Stunning and exotic one-of-a-kind custom made vintage Reem Acra wedding gown. Comes with a matching mantilla veil and a necktie for the groom. Made of Ivory silk gazar and organza with Acra’s hallmark hand embroidery in antique gold metallic thread on the neckline, bust, and hem. The embroidery was based on an antique Turkish vest in Acra’s personal collection of vintage textiles.
Acra was so inspired after making this dress that she used it as her muse for her entire Winter 1999 line, which included a similarly designed gown that was featured in the Winter 1999 issue of Martha Stewart Living.
I will include Acra’s own sketches for the dress and tie, a photo of her Turkish vest, and the 1999 issue of Martha Stewart Living which featured a dress included a similarly designed gown that was featured in the Winter 1999 issue of Martha Stewart Living.
Also included is a square 60″ x 36″ tulle mantilla veil with matching embroidery on edges and silk organza tie with matching embroidery for the groom.
Dress, veil, and tie were all preserved immediately after wedding by Imperial Gown Restoration Company. Box has remained sealed and protected from humidity and heat.
