Definitely Designer: Why You Need One as a Prom Dress
Let’s begin by making it clear we’re not suggesting you comb the red carpet and take copious notes of “who” your favorite celebrities, starlets, actresses, and personalities are wearing. Designer doesn’t necessarily mean matching Jennifer Anniston’s Christian Dior or Halle Berry’s Badgely-Mishka or Sarah Jessica Parker’s Halston. It also doesn’t mean Angelina Jolie’s Monique Lhuillier or Sophie Turner’s Valentino or Michelle Dockery’s Oscar del La Renta. It may surprise you that there are top designers who specifically design for the teen/prom/formal market.
Luckily, there are stores that not only feature 20,000 designer dress formals in a huge range of sizes, but also offer comprehensive online website. To get the best, visit their site at PromDressShop.com.

Olympian Ryan Lochte appeared backstage at one of the Sherri Hills shows. Sherri Hill’s designs gained recognition and popularity when winners for Miss Universe, Miss USA and Miss America chose Sherri Hill gowns. The small-town success story starts when she (Hill hails from Oklahoma) worked for more than a year at the watershed house Jovani Fashion and then, in 2008, she launched her brand and debuted at New York Fashion Week in 2011.
Another top designer whose wares can be found at the Prom Dress Shop includes Mori Lee, a favorite of popular TV personality Kelly Ripa. Mori Lee was established more than 60 years ago. Today, award-winning designer Madeline Gardner, graduate of the prestigious Fashion Institute of New York City, expands the icon line into pageant and prom wear.

Look for gorgeous, sweeping skirts in bold colorful floral designs with cropped tops in corseted, long sleeved, capped sleeved, sleeveless and other distinctive necklines.

Well-coordinated two-piece dresses dominate the prom season designs. Most are paired with fitted crop tops – all available in so many different necklines and sleeve lengths so you will definitely find something to flatter your figure.
Full-skirts with an almost antebellum flare are featured this year, and the one that stands out among these trends is the embellishment – gorgeous, beautiful and detailed embellishments, including intricate embroidery.
Floral prints with both black and white backgrounds are featured in skirts, mini and maxi. Look for bold, rich, traditional red roses set off with light and dark green rose leaves. Look for combinations of pink and green floral.
Playful prints speak all kinds of charming whimsy -- a black background dotted with sweet red cherries is cute and disarming.
