The world’s most expensive diamond dress adorned with 50 two-carat black diamonds will make its maiden visit to India next month. UK-based fashion designer Debbie Wingham, who created the dress, talks about the dress that will be brought to India through rock.in. The dress is worth five million dollars (R27.5 crore) and is currently on a world tour.
On the diamond dress
Black diamonds are very rare and seemed to add to the creation. The dress has 50, 2 carat black diamonds, a center piece of 5 carat black diamond, and 1,500 small pointer white diamonds. It weighs 13 kgs.
On Indian fashion
I love beautiful, bold colours that Indian designers use. I am also awed by the layering jazzed with top class adornments. I’m impressed by the fact that vintage pieces still have a strong influence on the more contemporary interpretations.
Her favourite Indian fashion designer
Manish Malhotra. I am a fan of his superb craftsmanship. Her fashion mantra Finishing on the inside is as important as the outside.
