The season of the Queen is on the approach, where young ladies everywhere will battle to become the ultimate Prom Queen. In a sea of long gowns, puff balls and corsets, it is your dress that you want to stand out and be remembered from the rest as the most amazing!
After searching online, Coast for me have stood out from the rest. Their latest collection is a mix of prom and bridal wear, however, as their look is so versatile even the bridal wear could be considered for proms. Their choices of up to the knee and maxi dresses are beautifully designed and create the ultimate Hollywood siren with a modern day twist. The prices range from as little as £150 up to £550, when considering the materials and how similar they are to the top designers, these prices are a bargain!
So, here are the ones that have made it onto the list…
