It isn’t enough to show your love by showering your lady with pure gold jewellery and accessories. If you want to go by a long shot, get in touch with Ahmet Atakan from Kahramanmaras. The Turkish jeweler has designed an outfit made entirely out of gold.
Valued at about $141,000, this dress may not be the ultimate glamorous gown in terms of fashion, but it is definitely the best way to scatter about 3 kgs of gold all over your body! In an attempt to give shape to this ritzy-glitzy dress, Ahmet has put together 78,000 pieces of gold which link to form a mesh-like material. Not boasting of any more frills and trims, the gilded designer piece is nothing less than a simple sleeveless dress. However with its deep neckline and thigh-high hemline, the dress reveals more than it is expected to cover with that much gold!
Till date the designer has already sold eight such outfits. Considering its exclusivity in terms of the material used and also the dare-bare style, we suppose each dress would be tailored to fit the wearer to a T. Also taking its value in account, we presume that the dress is not made out of pure gold as with the current market rates, 3 kg of gold alone would cost over $1.1 million.
Daily Mail also reports that, ‘Ahmet Atakan plans to keeps producing new gold dresses with an aim to increase the number of sales to 10 in 2014’.
