Fashion waits for no one! Get with the trends and learn what designers are shaping the prom fashions of today.
Prom dress designers look to popular couture fashion houses when designing gowns each season. By taking hints from fashion icons they are able to create looks that fit seamlessly with what's hot in fashion currently.
One method we recommend for finding a style that is sure to impress is to review, side-by-side, clothing catalogs from the top department stores or designer labels and either prom dress catalogs or prom dress websites.
It's hard to narrow down a dress designer from a candid shot you may have found on the 'net or seen in a gossip mag. Because of the semi-one-time nature of prom dress usage many designers spring up and then disappear just as quickly. This industry doesn't require building customer loyalty like traditional designer clothing lines do (if they want to survive!) so that's another reason why doing your research is necessary.
Beware of designer dresses with brands that closely mirror other well-known names. Generally great designers don't need to knock off someone else's brand and perception. Be sure to do a little research by using a search engine and typing in the designer's name. See what others have had to say about the quality of the materials and craftmanship.
