New Zealand wedding dress designer Trish Peng has created another world first for the industry - a reversible wedding dress. 

With her new line Reflections, customers don't have to choose between two styles of dress. Instead, they can wear one style for the ceremony and another for the reception.  

Peng says she was inspired to create the collection after one of her brides couldn't decide whether she wanted a plain dress or a lace dress. 

The custom-made gowns are available in every silhouette, they can be worn both ways, and brides can even select their own lace.

"So yes you can flip it and reverse it, it's a two in one dress," Peng explains. 

"The collection was quite technical to create as no one in the industry has attempted a reversible bridal gown before. When I couldn’t find a zipper supplier to do reversible zips, only finding chunky sleeping bag zips, I came up with the idea to hand stitch two zips on each side to form a supportive bodice." 

She debuted the collection at New York Bridal Fashion Week earlier this month.

In 2016, Peng made worldwide headlines for a show-stopping red gown with a record-breaking 25m-long train. 

Then in 2017, the designer made headlines again for her wedding dress design that was made entirely out of flowers and only lived for three hours out of water.
