The world’s most expensive abaya, valued at a cool AED65.1m (US$17.7m), will go on display in Dubai later this week.
Designed by Debbie Wingham, the abaya features a host of different coloured diamonds, including the world’s most expensive and rarest, the red diamond, as well as over 200,000 stitches in 14 carat white gold thread.
The abaya, which the designer claims is the most expensive garment in the world, will be on display at Raffles Dubai 21-25 March.
British designer Wingham broke the world record for the most expensive dress last year. The dress, which featured 50 two-carat black diamonds and weighed 29lbs, was valued at US$5.7m.
