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.
Excellent customer service, quick shipping, good pricing, and elegant and modest dress design. The material is thick and does not wrinkle easily. I wore the 'Pretty in Pink' hair pins; both sides of my family (Chinese and caucasian) wanted to know where I purchased my outfit and accessories from! I was happy to mention the store 'East Meets Dress' to a number of my curious guests! My only feedback is that the bra cups were placed comically high (possibly the fault of the tailor who took my measurements). Luckily it was remedied by some tailoring, a pushup bra, and fabric tape. I also wish the length of the dress was fully lined (instead of the slip)- I would gladly pay extra for the option. Overall, I am very happy with the dress and would highly recommend. Thank you EMD!
I ordered the Marilyn Dress in white for my upcoming wedding for the tea ceremony with family and I absolutely love it!! The pattern and detail was even more beautiful in person than in the picture. I was shocked how perfectly it fit too just by giving my measurements, I was expecting to have to make some small adjustments but it's spot on! My only feedback is that there were quite a few white strings sticking out of the collar and other areas that needed to be snipped after sewing but that wasn't a huge deal.
The dress came in a timely manner and support kept me up to date. I love the dress! It fit perfectly and the process of custom fitting was very smooth. Can't wait to wear it to the reception!
The dress came exactly as described and fit very well. Thank you!
