  • the $1.5m wedding dress made up of 2009 peacock feathers

    The $1.5million creation was made at a wedding dress factory and took eight workers 40 days to sew together.


    The dress, valued at around $1.5m, took eight workers 40 days to sew together


    Proud plumage: Only male birds display the colorful feathers

    An average male peacock sheds around 200 feathers during his annual molt – meaning the makers would have had to have harvested the feathers from more than ten birds over the course of a year.

    Male peacock tail feathers grow to be several feet long but are shed each year just before the breeding season.

    The feathers feature a design resembling an eye and are made up of shimmering blues and greens.

    Despite the dresses' eye-catching beauty, prospective brides should be aware that peacock feathers are considered bad luck in some cultures.

    While the live birds themselves are thought to bring good luck, having peacock feathers in your home bears the risk of inviting in trouble and sorrow.

    The dress was assembled in a wedding dress factory in Nanjing, east China's Jiangsu Province and features a bodice created with brocade and Suzhou embroidery.
