Presence of the expensive jewel-studded coins available in the market is common but usage of gold-coins as a fabric of a dress celebrates the non-commonality. At recently held fashion show at the Bunka Fashion College in Tokyo, models added elegance to the ramp by flaunting dresses loaded with gold coins.
Equipped with almost 1,500 Austrian gold coins, the coins-embedded within a full-length dress weighing 10 kg and two jackets weighing up to 21 kg were prized at more than $1.2 million. I am sure such dresses are restricted to ramp only as their very advent on to the streets would invite thieves. The calculated sum of the coins embedded on to the dress obliges the dress with a price tag of $233,000 (26,900,000) and jacket would fetch $574,000 (66 million yen), if ever eyes auction.
