Tease your hair, strap on your favorite gold something and your dancing heels and hit the dance floor, darlings. Nip slips are not required, but they make a lovely accessory. Yes, it’s 1975 on the runway and Reem Acra has decided to head to the disco. Not the sanitized white-suited, American Bandstand, Saturday Night Fever version of it, though. This is the real, sexy/dirty/glam deal. Oh sure, there’s a little bit of uptown respectability throughout, but the rest of it’s pure downtown underground discotheque. Latin drag queens and Afro-divas inventing the Hustle and the Bump for the masses while a couple socialites crash the party looking for the best blow in town – filtered through a modern runway, of course. It’s fun. And a nice alternative to the Studio 54 version of disco which fashion people tend to default to most often. We’re dying to see quite a bit of this on the red carpet.
