Our best-selling Marilyn dress is now available in traditional red and gold. Celebrate your wedding or Chinese New Year with this modern cheongsam design that you can wear again. The best part about this dress is that it’s made with a soft, stretchy fabric so you can look good and stay comfortable in it all day. Customize it with sheer or non-sheer side panels.
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.
I ordered this from Canada and was so worried it wouldn't arrive in time. Vivian was so kind, never pressured me, and always reassured me it could be done! I'm getting married in less than two weeks and I can already tell I'm going to wish I could wear this for more than just the tea ceremony! The wine colour is gorgeous, the dress feels like absolute quality, you can feel from the embroidery and the seams that it's handmade (and well-made!) and the whole thing fits perfectly to my measurements. So, so excited to wear this on my wedding day!
Bonus: My mom used to be a seamstress and is always criticizing the quality of "clothes these days." She saw this and gave this the nod of approval, which has never happened to me in recent memory.
Amazing dress with beautiful fabric. Jenn helped me getting the perfect dress for my brother’s wedding. She was very understanding, and open to personalize the dress. The timing was just perfect, she hold her promises on sending it on time to France. No customs issues. I definitely recommend her professional work and will not hesitate to contact her again!! thank you so much! I was elected most élégante of the wedding!
I needed a dress for my civil wedding ceremony. I wanted a dress that was colorful and elegant, as well as a being a nod to my fiance's heritage. I found East Meets Dress and got excited. I had a few questions before I purchased and I got quick response!
I ordered the Red Marilyn Dress and the dress arrived EARLY and fit perfectly. It looks exactly like the picture, especially the beautiful wine color. The PDF for measurements was extremely helpful and the tailor was impressed that there were pictures for each measurement needed. Overall great experience. I wish I had another event so I can get another custom dress made!
I bought this dress for prom because I wanted to stand out and proudly show my culture! I love Chinese qipaos because they are simply so gorgeous. However, it is hard to find them in America, so thank you East Meets Dress for creating modern qipaos that I can easily purchase!!!
The customization process is fairly easy. I do recommend that you get a professional tailor to do your measurements.
At prom, so many people complimented my dress--they really loved how unique it was. Even classmates I didn't often talk to came up to me to compliment me. I am very happy with my purchase, and I will be sure to check out East Meets Dress for my future dresses as well.
I absolutely love my dress and the experience I received while in the process! I bought a custom dress (for my prom) and they were very fast and helpful along the way. They sent diagrams of how, where, and what to measure. I received many compliments on my dress!
We were tired of browsing sketchy sites with no customer support so we started EMD.
