There are EIGHT versions to Cinderella’s dress and it took a team of 20 people and 4000 hours to make. Each of the eight versions of the gown is slightly different. One is 2in shorter and a couple are 4in for the times when Cinderella had to run; another has holes cut in the sides of the skirt for harness work.
The top layer of the gown is silk crepeline, a very lightweight, fine silk. The layers underneath are made up of a synthetic called yumissima, an incredibly light (and very expensive, about £150 a metre) material which floats when thrown in the air.
There are 3 Miles of thread in the hems and 250 Metres of fabric in each dress. The designer and her team are sworn to secrecy about the price of Cinderella’s dress but estimates have it at a whopping 11, 000 pounds!
