Incredible Wedding Gowns From One Of The Top Dress Designers

20

If youre in the know on wedding gowns and designers, then you probably know the name of Reem Acra. Since 1995, she has been known as one of the premiere wedding gown designers in the world, using that platform to branch out into many other areas of fashion.

Acra was born in Lebanon, and studied her craft in both Paris, at Esmod Ecole de Mode of Design, and New York, at the Fashion Institute of Technology. She won many designing awards at both schools, launching her into a fashion career.

It pays to have friends in high places. After a friend wore one of her early bridal designs at her wedding, and the attention it received helped her start her own company in 1995, and she launched her first bridal designs in 1997. Her fashion house in Manhattan is known as one of the top bridal salons in the world.

Acras style is renowned for her use of embroidery, which sets her apart from most other wedding gown designers, along with intricate beading and the use of a lot of silk. She loves rich colors and anything handmade, and one can easily tell that she loves fashion. Her fashion is sometimes considered the opposite of Vera Wangs in that she tends to be more traditional with modern flare, whereas Vera Wang starts off modern then adds touches of tradition on the back end.

One of her most popular bridal lines uses small Swarovski crystals and seed pearls to perfection. Because of the intricacy of her designs, wedding dresses can take longer to make, which of course means theyll generally cost more. Her prices usually start around $4,000.00 and go up from there, and even resale values of preowned dresses often go for over $3,000.

Reem Acras wedding gowns have been worn by many top celebrities. Some of the names include Marcia Cross, Star Jones, Jennie Garth and Katey Sagal. Her other designs have been popular with actresses such as Halle Berry, Jennifer Lopez and Angelina Jolie.

Strangely enough, Acra is also well known for creating a specialty wedding dress design for Barbie, which, at around $180, was the most expensive Barbie accessory in history, but also one of the most sought after items.

At her live bridal show in April 2009, she exhibited a bridal line that she stated was fairy tale inspired, with wedding dresses having names like Rapunzel, Sleeping Beauty, Snow White and Rumpelstiltskin, a gown which was embroidered with whimsical flowers, and Cinderella, which was a pale blue silk with gold silkscreened embellishments.

Reem Acra is a designer with a great flair and an eye for both color and detail. Its no wonder that shes one of the top wedding gown designers in the world today.

The Designers Of Reebok Have Engineered A Shoe

8

It doesn’t seem like very long ago that Reebok were getting everyone out of the gym by turning everyday walking into a muscle toning workout thanks to their Reebok zigtech shoes. The highly stylish toner shoes were an instant hit with women looking to get in shape faster and get more rewards from the time they spent exercising. What made them such a bestselling style was their ability to convert dead time into toning time, making a day long workout a possibility without having to go to the gym, or have the expense that accompanies it. Whenever walking the dog, walking to work, or running for the bus, the muscles get better body tone as they work harder with each step.

The designers of Reebok have engineered a shoe that gives you the feeling that you are walking on a dry sandy beach. That is a nice idea, but there is some solid science behind this. Think about the last time you walked on a soft sandy beach, it was hard to keep your balance and you had to move around quite a bit to keep your balance. Reebok has developed their own proprietary technology to take advantage of the benefits of instability training here with this shoe. The Reebok Easytone features built in balance pods near the top of the sole and heel to give you a natural instability as you walk.

For no-frills exercise, there re models other than the Reebok recumbent exercise bike which are more focused on the health and fitness portion of an exercise routine. For some this is preferable, but in many exercise bike reviews, the distraction of games to play has shown itself to be an appealing feature for amateur users. At the other end of the spectrum, the Cateye Gamebike weaves the experience of popular video games into the workout routine, almost taking a user Reebok ZigTech shoes away from the fact of a physical workout entirely, as they race or drive through games they’ve enjoyed with conventional gamepads for years.

1. Logo Design:

There are millions of businesses around the world. Either small or big, they cannot establish their businesses without a logo that defines who they are. In this case, they either employ or outsource a graphic designer to do the logo design. Some businesses have designed their logos before but with some developments they look forward to revamping their business logo design as well.

2. Brand Identity:

Graphic designers also know how to establish the brand identity of a business. This is manifested through creating unique yet original designs that can distinguish a business or brand from the others. This is seen through images, emails, letterheads, business cards, social media accounts, and much more.

3. Illustrator:

Graphic designing has also something to do with illustrations and, for this reason; they know how to be an illustrator. The process begins through a conversation between a client and an illustrator. In here, the client will specify the vision it has in mind and will let the illustrator do the magic for them. This product will be mostly seen on calendars, greeting cards, magazines, stationery, and more.

4. Print Ads:

Clients who promote their businesses give time to provide clients with deals and limited offers to engage new and existing customers in purchasing their products or hiring their services. To do this, they hire designers that will layout the print ads, brochures, and fliers.

Basically, graphic designing will continue to be in demand in the coming years. People rely on the creativity and artistry of these artists. Without them, businesses would end up providing useless visuals that fail to entertain and persuade the public to try their products and services.

Once established, gaining clients’ trusts will eventually be an artist’s way to promote his career online. More clients will continue to approach and artists can thrive in getting more graphic designing jobs.

Macau Fashion Designers Showcase In Hong Kong Fashion Week

12

Organized by the Macau Productivity and Technology Transfer Center, the Macao Fashion Parade showed Hong Kong the best of Macau local fashion designers. Presented during the Hong Kong Fashion Week 2014 Spring/Summer Collection Fashion Show, held on July 10, four Macau fashion labels (MaConsef, ZICS, Nega C and Nubiano) showcased a total of 60 items on an exclusive catwalk.
The event presents a variety of the latest fashions and accessories, displayed to 17,000 buyers from 74 countries and regions, with a total of 1,250 exhibitors from 21 countries and regions.
After the showcase, we had the opportunity to meet with both Isabella Choi, one of the Macau designers presenting her collection, and Giselle Lam, a former Miss Hong Kong pageant contestant, who was a member of the audience.
It was Isabella Chois first experience showing her creations in Hong Kong. She said that the event was a very exciting experience, and that she had really enjoyed it. Choi admitted she didnt have a clear idea of the publics reaction to her collection, as she was very nervous. Choi is the owner of a small boutique in Macau and sells her creations from there. Choi emphasized that these kinds of events are a very important opportunity for designers such as herself, as it is a unique chance for designers to show their work outside Macau and gain more attention for their work. In particular, Hong Kong is always an important market for sales due to its proximity to Macau.
Giselle Lam, 2011 Miss Hong Kong pageant contestant, commented that she was surprised by the collections presented by the Macau fashion designers, as this was the first time they were showcased in an event of this scale. Lam confessed that there were several pieces that amazed her, especially in the MaConsef by CPPTM collection. This was due to the fact that they showed a lot of creativity whilst still retaining the ability to be wearable. In Lams opinion, this is the most important factor in fashion. Lam particularly admired the nightgowns presented by Nubiano brand, confessing that she frequently wears them in her daily working life. Lam believes that usually cuts can be too formal and straight and felt that the collection presented alternative cuttings to suit a ladys silhouette, which she found very impressive.
