Vietnam perhaps is not all about post-communist boredom and post war melancholy. The country is teeming with luxury goods and consumers who lap it all up. Here is a $117,000 wedding gown that simply blows your mind away and it comes from Vietnam. It has designed by Huy Vo and is called “Bach ngoc xiem y”.
It has 22 big rubies and 8 big diamonds and it took almost 40 days to complete this unique gown. The first runner up of Miss Vietnam 2008 will wear this on the 30th of June, that is today. It has also been given the certificate for being the most expensive gown in Vietnam. It would be interesting to see if other designers would like to compete with this gown.
I especially like the way it falls and the way it transforms the wearer’s look and expression. If you have the money you could perhaps ask someone to get a similar gown designed for yourself. It is being showcased at the Ruby Plaza trading centre in Hanoi. I would love to take a look at it firsthand!
