I bought this dress at the Reem Acra sample sale in August 2013. According to the incredibly helpful staff, it was made for the Fall runway show but never put into production. The staff suggested that if it did go into production it would retail for anywhere between $8,500 – $10,000. It was also featured on a sample sale website (if you contact me, i’d be happy to send you the link to the sample sale website).
It is a beautiful ball gown with a tulle bottom. There is a silk underlay / slip that is underneath the tulle portion of the dress. The top is hand embroidered appliqué and has a built in corset.
You will see there is a line across the dress. It is for a belt that Reem Acra currently has in stock (at the show room in New York). I was going to purchase it, but decided on another dress before purchasing the belt. Because it is a sample there is no size on the dress. I am a size 2 and it fits me.
I fell in love with it on the spot. Unfortunately, I wound up changing my venue (to a beach club) and the dress is no longer appropriate.
It has never been worn, other than being tried on by me at the sample sale.
I am willing to sell it to anyone else who dreams of wearing Reem to their wedding, but does not necessarily want to spend $10,000 on a wedding dress.
I am willing to negotiate with buyers on a price. If you live in the New York area, I would not mind letting you try it on before purchasing. I can also send additional pictures if you would like.
