EXCLUSIVE AT NET-A-PORTER. Reem Acra's eye for fabrics dates back to when she was five and her mother would take her to souks to teach her about beautiful materials. This gown is made from navy silk-faille with a lustrous sheen and a crisp handle that holds the shape. It's pleated at the waist to create ripples through the slit skirt, which is underpinned with layers of tulle for volume. The sweetheart bodice is lightly boned for support, too.
