Paul Brockman’s Collection Of 55,000 Dresses Bought For His Wife

1

This might look like a dress-makers warehouse, but this huge collection of frocks actually belongs to just ONE woman.

2

Margot Brockmann, 76, owns the 55,000 dresses that are worth an eye-watering $1,045,000.

3

Her devoted husband Paul, 78, bought a new dress every time they went ballroom dancing and after 56 years the collection had become too big and the couple are being forced to sell up.

4

Paul and Margot, from Lomita, California, have been keeping the dress at a 42,000 square feet warehouse but the costs have become too much.

5

German-born Paul, who has been dancing since the age of 13, said: “I met my wife on the dance floor – I always picked the girls with the prettiest dresses.

6

“The first time we danced, we danced all night. After that we got closer and from that day I started buying dresses.”

7

The colourful collection had previously been kept in six storage containers, but last year the couple moved 18,000 of the dresses to the warehouse.

The rest stayed in containers in the garage.
