Faisol Abdullah, a Malaysian designer, is up to designing the hottest couture ever with a $30 million diamond dress dubbed the “Nightingale of Kuala Lumpur,” in time for the Stylo Fashion festival early next month in the Malaysian capital.
“Stocks drop, gold is even falling, but a diamond is forever. This is a dress with diamonds. The silk and taffeta evening gown will be decked with 751 diamonds with a 70 carat pear-shaped diamond at the centre of the bodice (featured here is a $20 million diamond dress from Chris Aire with the 70 carat diamond), and topped off with a train sparkling with diamonds.
Asked if the dress would attract buyers, Nancy Yeoh, chief executive of Stylo, which commissioned the dress, said: “Its art and there are still enough rich people who would want to buy. This $30 million dress leaves Victoria’s Secret far behind in the race for the most expensive couture, with the second runner-up being the $20 million diamond dress designed by jeweler Chris Aire, but just in tune with the $30 million diamond studded bikini created by Susan Rosen with Steinmetz Diamonds.
This Christian Dior Couture gown is pennies
compared to the diamond wonder frock.
