A classic red and gold sheath cheongsam made with beautiful brocade patterned fabric. The colors red and gold perfectly symbolize love, happiness, and fortune. You can’t go wrong with this design if you’re looking for a wedding cheongsam that is more traditional that your parents and in-laws will approve of but still provides that modern and classy touch.
Better yet? This dress is made to your custom measurements and offers a variety of customizations such as the fabric pattern, pankou knots (frog buttons), sleeves, and length.
We'll provide instructions for measurements after you place an order. Our custom-size dresses take up to 16 weeks to make and deliver. For a faster option, check out our Gemma Dress–Ships Now version.
This dress is named after Gemma Chan, a Chinese-English actress known for her role as Astrid in the 2018 film Crazy Rich Asians, in which she received widespread recognition.
Gorgeous silk brocade fabric and we'll made garment. Even my mom was impressed! I've been recommending EastMeetsDress to all my friends since.
The Qipao as absolutely stunning and fit me like a glove! I did have to get it altered just a tiny bit but EMD was able to suggest two tailors in the Bay Area that were phenomenal. At this point I want to buy even more dresses from them because the craftsmanship is beautiful and every dress is so unique. Shipping was faster than expected which made stressing over it non existent. I can't wait to wear it again!
I received the dress quickly and it is beautiful! It definitely feels high quality and well made. The dress fits perfectly and I won't need any further alterations. The communication about custom sizing measurements was great. I'd highly recommend getting your dress here!
Thank you East Meets Dress!! I ordered a ready to ship Gemma about three weeks out from the wedding date 😱 I’d taken too long to make up my mind. But the team was amazing! They responded right away and shipped it as soon as I placed the order. I actually received it within 3 days. Crazy!
The fit was a little roomier than expected, and could have been worn without alterations. But it was very easy for my tailor to take it in.
For reference I’m 5’4”, soft hourglass and 155lb when I ordered it. I ordered a 2XL which was a little disheartening 😅 but Asian sizing 🤷🏻♀️
First off, I don't normally go for a form fitting dress but wanted to wear something more traditional for my tea ceremony as I have an a-line dress for my white wedding dress. :) This dress is beautiful and I opted for the dragon/phoenix pattern which is perfect!! I decided to go with the gemma dress after trying the sample kit and get it custom made with my measurements. When I received it on time, it fit perfectly and I'm so happy with it!! No further alterations necessary and I can't wait to wear it for my tea ceremony! Also huge thanks to the customer service team for answering all my questions before placing my order. :)
We were tired of browsing sketchy sites with no customer support so we started EMD.
Designed by Asian-Americans, for the modern woman.
