If you think your obnoxiously over-the-top cousin had a long train at her wedding, prepared to be stunned.

Last week, bridal gown designer Trish Peng broke the record for longest train to ever appear on a catwalk. The Auckland designer closed the New Zealand Weddings Magazine show at New Zealand Fashion Week with an elaborate red custom gown with a record-breaking 66-foot silk tulle train.

A spokeswoman from Trish Peng told Daily Mail Australia that the dress was made using vintage Christian Dior lace flown in from France, which was embellished with hundreds of Swarovski crystals. A team of four spent 120 hours creating the $5,800 dress.

A handful of minders followed the model, who wore a wreath-like gold headpiece and matching shoulder clasp, to carry the train behind her.

The 25-year-old designer said she went with red because it “is a sign of prosperity and good luck so it’s a bit of that as well as making a statement for the grand finale piece.”

Well, she definitely achieved grand.
