Lebanese designer Reem Acra has gone back to her Arabian roots in the latest SS16 collection. For a moment while watching the show, you’d get that strong feeling that you’re reading or even watching a TV episode of One Thousand and One Nights. With floral details, exotic shimmery fabrics, and embroidered belts embellishing kaftan-inspired short and maxi dresses, Acra has made her Arab-mystique collection universal for women looking for enigmatic yet feminine designs.

Diane Von Furstenberg has always positioned her brand as a beacon of liberty and celebration of women’s individuality. The SS16 collection is no stranger to this equation. Named “Fortuna” after the Ancient Goddess of luck, models walked down the runway looking like modern Roman goddesses with their wavy hair and glowing makeup. DVF surely paid homage to her timeless Wrap Dress, yet she also added a twist to the show with tailored suits and patch-worked prints.

Her SS16 collection embraced a sense of freshness and utter femininity, through soft colors, laser-cut fabrics stitched onto transparent tulle.
