This season’s most expensive dress arrived in courtesy of Marc Jacobs, you may remember him from his most recent job as Louis Vuitton’s creative director. During the recently concluded New York Fashion Week, he unveiled the “Puffy Clouds Embroidery Dress” which will be available by special order for $28,000.
Made in a Swiss embroidery workshop, dress features flower patterns made from organza and hand-stuffed with three meters of yarn. Fabric for the ankle length dress cost €8,000 a meter, which is about $11,000. It took three people a week to create the fabric.
Complete ensemble of the dress include a matching bomber jacket and a grey leather pants. Celebrities and magazines have the opportunity to rent out the dress on a limited basis. At the end of the season Puffy Clouds Embroidery Dress will be retired to design house’s archives.
