Wed 05-02-2014

10 women with varying disabilities are currently working at the Dubai Club for the Disabled, on a dress that is set to break the Guinness World Record for the longest wedding dress.

The dress, which is designed by young designer Reem Al Marzouqi, will be presented to the Guinness World Record committee on March 20 at the Zabeel Park, and one of the women from the club will showcase it.

The dress’s train will be 5 kilometers long, which is almost double the old record, which is 2.5 kilometers. 

The Dubai Club for the Disabled adopted the project as it was in line with its recent efforts to put more focus on the social and cultural side of the club, Majid Abdullah Al Asimi, Executive Director of Dubai Club for the Disabled, said at a press conference.
