London, Mar 21 (ANI): Romania has entered the Guinness Book of World Records for the longest bridal train after a model wearing a wedding gown floated in a hot air balloon above downtown Bucharest.
The 1.85-mile-long ivory train, worn by 17-year-old model Ema Dumitrescu, floated high above a main boulevard in Romania's capital on Tuesday, the Telegraph reported.
The new record set by the silk and lace gown, beats the previous record held by a Dutch designer.
Pedestrians, however, didn't seem to make much of the event, organised by the gown's creators - the Andree Salon fashion house and the organisers of this year's biannual Wedding Fair in Bucharest.
A few bystanders looked up at the balloon, but many others ignored it.
Salon spokeswoman Lavinia Lascae said that the train, which took 100 days to stitch, was crafted by a team of 10 seamstresses.
4,700 metres of taffeta, 5.5 metres of Chantilly lace, 45 metres of lining, 1,857 sewing needles and 150 spool threads were used in the creation of the gown and train.
She added that the lace was imported from France, while the taffeta and other fabrics were purchased from Italy, costing approximately 5,000 pounds. (ANI)
