The classic white cheongsam (qipao) dress with a modern twist and splash of color. Made for the iconic woman who wants to push the boundaries of fashion for her traditional Chinese wedding dress.
For our red cheongsam (qipao) option, check out our Red Marilyn Dress.
This dress is named after Marilyn Monroe, an iconic American actress, model, and singer during the 1950s and 1960s who helped shaped popular culture and attitudes towards beauty and sexuality.
Love the overall look of the dress. Kinda sucks that the inside short liner is visible, not sure if it's something that can be solved with thicker outer fabric. Still will wear it and make it work!
As an Chinese adoptee, I did not think much about my heritage until my late-teens/early twenties. When I got engaged, I knew I wanted to do something in honor of my Chinese heritage, but I didn't know what exactly. I found out about EastMeetsDress through AsianBossGirl's video, and I instantly fell in love with nearly every one I saw on the website. I knew I still wanted a white dress for my wedding, and the white Marilyn dress checked all of the boxes I wanted in a dress. Not only was this a modern Chinese wedding dress; it was white with splashes of blue. My late-grandmother got married in a blue dress, and I also wanted to do something to honor her at my wedding. The white Marilyn dress did all three of these things: honor the traditional white wedding dress, my Chinese heritage, and my late-grandmother. I couldn't have asked for a more meaningful and beautiful dress to wear on my wedding day.
I love this dress so, so much. I've was looking through (what it felt like) all of Etsy for a wedding dress, but none of them appealed to me. I then stumbled upon EMD because I thought maybe I could wear an Asian inspired dress. It's even more beautiful in person and fits perfectly!!
Dress was so beautiful and so well made. I'm in Australia, and it arrived so much faster than I expected. Would absolutely recommend to others!
