Brides who want to celebrate in the great outdoors on their big day can now keep dry if the weather turns, with the launch of a wedding gown featuring waterproof Gore-Tex fabric.

The wedding dress gives outdoors enthusiasts the opportunity of a worry-free ceremony in remote locations.

The world’s first all-weather, all-terrain designer wedding dress that packs down to a travel-size backpack has been released by leading outdoor company Kathmandu.

The Adapt Wedding Dress is the result of a collaboration between Kathmandu, New Zealand fashion designer Tanya Carlson and Gore-Tex fabric, which is used extensively in the Kathmandu clothing range.

The dress uses seven metres of Gore-Tex fabric cut and draped in a continuous line to create a classic Carlson silhouette with minimal seams. Inside, the gown is lined in fine blue merino wool.

The one-of-a-kind gown features:

  • Design engineered with Gore-Tex product, enabling the dress to be waterproof yet functional
  • A train that transforms into a cape with hood to deal with unexpected heavy rainfall
  • A Pack&GO solution, allowing the dress to pack down cleverly into a travel-size bag
  • Large storage pockets inside the dress also allow the bride to carry flowers, first-aid kits or bottles of water
  • Internal zips that transform the length of the dress, taking the bride from alter to first waltz with ease and style.

The Kathmandu Adapt dress is launched on 1 April.
