Get all the things you could possibly want in a wedding gown thanks to this modern luxe Chinese wedding dress. Featuring gold floral embroidery which pops against the vibrant red. The mermaid silhouette is enhanced with a stunning train and slit to show off your legs as well as a keyhole for extra breathability.
Made to your custom measurements. This dress can also be customized in terms of color, sleeve length, back, and train.
This dress is named after Maxine Hong Kingston - award winning author and Professor Emerita at the University of California, Berkeley. Her works, “The Woman Warrior” and “China Men” have received several awards for her contributions to Chinese American literature.
As soon as I saw the Maxine, I knew it would be the cheongsam I would wear for my wedding day. The embroidery is beautiful, and EMD even accommodated my custom request to add 2 small golden bunnies to my left shoulder. I loved that they had the flexibility to make the cheongsam even more personal and meaningful! I also got my husband the matching EMD Classic Dragon Pocket Square. It was the perfect detail and so many people complimented us on our matching outfits.
The measurement process is intense, but worth it. Follow EMD's advice and get a professional tailor to measure you. (We tried DIY measurements and compared them to a professional tailor's - and the numbers were VERY different :D) I also really appreciate the $50 tailoring credit to help make the dress fit just right. One note is that the keyhole was a tiny bit wider than it looks in the product listing's pictures.
Thank you EMD for making it so easy to honor tradition with custom cheongsams! 10/10 would recommend!
This dress was everything I was hoping it would be and more! The team at EMD was so responsive from day 0 before I even purchased the gown and sent them an inquiry about custom color options. The dress was shipped at the exact time frame they said to expect, and they even sent a little update a few weeks beforehand to let me see how the progress was going! The dress fits beautifully and looks gorgeous - I am so excited to wear this at my wedding and I cannot thank the team at EMD more for their hard work in creating this gown.
The dress is gorgeous! There were some areas that needed adjustments, but my local seamstress was able to fix them. I’m excited to wear this for my tea ceremony.
This dress is beautiful to be in, I'm so excited to wear it on my big day. Shipping was lightning fast as I had expected it to get to me in Mar, but it came over a month early, enough time to get it altered to fit perfectly!
Couldn’t have found anyone better to order qipao’s from.
And they have a responsive customer service team
We were tired of browsing sketchy sites with no customer support so we started EMD.
Designed by Asian-Americans, for the modern woman.
