Feature Friday: Prom Season

Last week's post about bridal season was a huge success, so this week I interviewed Brittany about prom season.

Here's what she had to say:

How would you sum up prom season?
B: We've had a lot more dresses than last year and there's also some variety here as well. 

What style is popular this year?
Strapless dresses and sweetheart necklines. Some of the bridal styles that were popular a couple years ago are now really popular with prom.

What about specific dress styles?
B: Chiffon overlays are in this year. Very full chiffon at that. Two of the dresses had a circumference of 300 inches! Also beading and ruching are in as well. 

And the most popular color this year?
B: Cobalt Blue. We've had a lot of dresses with that color this year.

Do you have any advice for girls shopping for prom dresses?
B: Prom dresses usually have a quick turnaround unless there's a lot of chiffon. Be prepared that if your dress has a very full chiffon overlay, alteration prices are higher because it takes a lot more time to work on. We enjoy working on these dresses though!
