Zac Posen designs 24-karat gold dress worth $1.5 million
Art is not restricted to paint and canvas; fashion can be art too. We have earlier seen haute couture as a form of art with Valentine’s day flower dress entirely made of 1,725 roses, Edible chocolate gowns and most expensive designer dresses like the $275,000 gold coin gown. Now, designer Zac Posen redefines haute couture with his masterpiece, a 24-karat gold gown worth $1.5 million. The designer teamed up with Magnum Ice Cream to create a one-of-a-kind couture gown inspired by their newest Magnum Gold ice cream bar. The sleeveless gown with a plunging neckline and train designed to recreate the melting ice cream effect, is made entirely from more than 10,000 24k gold sequins in five different sizes which were hand-created from sheets of 24k gold.
“Creating my first-ever 24-karat gold dress was a truly priceless experience,” said Posen. The decadent gown was designed in a span of two weeks and the delicate gold sequins were sewn in the dress using a special embroidery technique to accentuate the female shape.
“Ice cream and fashion represent decadence, sensuousness, and luxury — something you wear or eat for your own indulgent pleasure,” Posen adds.
The gown will be worn by Brazilian actress Caroline Correa in a short promotional film “As Good As Gold” for the ice cream, and will make its debut at the Tribeca Film Festival on April 18.
