Zang Toi Creates $30,000 Gown

A friend of his, "Real Housewives of New York City" star Jill Zarin, had the honor of wearing it on the catwalk. Most people can only dream of affording this gown, which retails for $30,000. But when you look at all the work that goes into it, the price tag is no surprise.
10 people divide 1,800 hours of work, hand-beading 13,000 custom-dyed Swarovski crystals, beads and sequins onto the dress.

"It took my breath away," she says. "The taste level is timeless. This is going to be my wedding dress when I renew my vows." Zarin had only one concern: "I just hope I don't trip over the dress."
