An exquisite wedding gown with over 50,000 crystals, created by an Italian bridal shop, Michela Ferriero, has officially broken the Guinness World Record for the most crystals on a bridal outfit.
The wedding gown debuted during the Si Sposaitalia Collezioni fashion show in Milan on April 14, 2023, after four months of preparation, as per a report in the Guinness World Records.
The world-record-breaking gown has transparent material, a sweetheart neckline, and a form-fitting silhouette. To make sure the bridge shines with each step, even the gloves are covered with jewels.
The wedding dress, which consists of 50,890 Swarovski crystals, had individual crystals sewn into the tulle base of the dress. The crystal fringes on the bodice, the gloves, and lastly the crystal chains on the back to provide a cascade of light, as per the official website of GWR. Additionally, it took a ‘painstaking’ 200 working hours to sew each crystal.
The dress was created by Michela Ferriero, which specializes in “luxury and bespoke wedding dresses”. Michela Ferriero, the co-founder of the shop, devised the creation after researching the best materials for implementing the concept and it took several months of planning to make the special outfit.
The previous record was held by Zden Gelinlik Moda Tasarim Ltd. from Turkey, which displayed 45,024 crystals at the Forum Istanbul Shopping Mall in Istanbul on January 29, 2011.
