If you only want to wear the finest and most expensive threads, be ready to pay £3.7 million (US$ 5.7 million) for this one of a kind dress by British fashion designer Debbie Wingham. Encrusted with 50 two-carat black diamonds, Wingham’s creation debuted at Ukraine Fashion Week in Kiev recently.
The expensive frock sets the world record for the Most Expensive Dress, according to the World Record Academy. Wingham used semitransparent fabric for the dress, which she herself sew, and decorated it with rare black diamonds on the basque and shrug.
On the fringe of the dress are white diamonds framed in gold, painstakingly hand-stitched by the couturier herself. It took six months for Wingham to finish her 29 lbs. creation which she considers as “an anthem for a beautiful woman who loves life.”
The designer decided to present her costly masterpiece in the Ukraine Fashion Week, because she considers the location as a potential market for valuable outfits from her latest collection which also included high-priced jeans, which are also decorated with diamonds.
Meanwhile, the most expensive dress is still up for grabs for those who can afford its sky high price tag.
