How Pageants Influence Prom Dress Designs Of Mac Duggal

CHICAGO, Jan. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- It is pageant season, and 2013's prom-goers need not look anywhere but the world's top pageants to inspire their choice of prom dresses.  Contestants sported the hottest trends—endlessly textured trumpet skirts, sparkling jewels and sequins clinging to the body in all of the right places and dancing with the light, and mythical goddess detailing. Young women on their way to prom wearing these looks can be confident knowing that their dress styling was chosen as beautiful enough to be worn by some of the most dazzling women and judged on a world-wide stage.

Serving as liaison between the realms of pageant and prom are a number of talented designers, one of the most notable is Mac Duggal.  His gowns were a popular choice for the highly competitive, network televised Miss Universe and Miss America pageants.  Mac Duggal is an indisputable dream weaver--designing gowns for the upper tier of pageant competitors as well as for this year's prom set, crafting gorgeous confections and adding a generous sprinkle of what's hot to each of his lines.

Mac Duggal Pageant Coordinator Antoinette Romero commented on Mac Duggal pageant-to-prom versatility, "prom styles draw inspiration from award winning pageant styles. For example, Miss Peru Universe selected a one shoulder, fully beaded, illusion styled gown as her Official Competition Gown for Miss Universe.  This dress, which won Global Beauties 'Best Evening Gown Award' at Miss Universe has inspired many prom dresses this year that feature the 'illusion style'.  For girls that want to amp the sex appeal in their prom dress, illusion styles will grace proms across the world ".

Viewing pageants dresses illustrates how these exquisite gown have shaped the designs in the Mac Duggal prom collections.  He has exquisitely blended couture and colloquial, so that you may float into prom as a winner on your own stage.
