It was a surprising soak in glamour for the Lebanese-born designer. She told us backstage she wanted the collection to tell the audience "it's time to go out and party and have fun."
Among the best looks.. a firework pattern in several of the gowns.
Gold lame and sheer fabrics set to a disco beat also rocked the runway.
Hair was roller girl-chic. As Reem Acra said, "Fashion is for us to have fun."
Look for Jenna Lee's look at the Acra show, and her take on New York Fashion Week later this week.
