Alyce Designs was founded in 1967 by French born designer Alyce Hamm, a graduate of the prestigious Paris de Ecole Couture. She moved to the United States where she created the family owned and Chicago based fashion house which has acquired an international reputation of excellence. Alyce Paris dresses are imbued with French influence, reflecting the European sense of beauty and the French aesthetic. This style tradition is honored by Claudine Hamm, the niece of the founder and the current principal designer of the company.
The prom line primarily focuses on full-length dresses, though shorter dresses do make an appearance. Two-piece dresses are increasingly popular as their versatile appeal is recognized and they feature heavily in the collection. Whatever fantasies your prom dreams lead you to can be satisfied with a design that will make your dreams come true. If your wish is to make a dramatic entrance in a rosette ruffled trumpet dress you will not be disappointed, and if you are inclined to fulfill a princess fantasy there are opulent ball gowns. Perhaps you prefer to unleash your sexy side in a form fitting two-piece that invites you to reveal your bare midriff, or give in to romance in a floaty A-line number with a filmy flowing skirt. There are sultry black dresses that add sophistication to any evening and long red dresses that put the heat into red carpet events. With such a wide selection of coveted dresses there is something to suit your sense of style for any number of important events in your social calendar.
Alyce Paris is the recipient of many design awards, reflecting the company’s commitment to quality dresses with a perfect fit. A wide range of fabrics is used in these designs; each carefully selected to do perfect justice to the natural movement of the dress. The collection incorporates chiffon and silky chiffon, stretch crepe and satin crepe, satin and stretch satin. Jersey, bandage and stretch taffeta are molded into fascinating dresses alongside gowns fabricated in Mikado, tulle, beaded tulle and lace. Fabric combinations are carefully chosen, as are two-tone fabrics and fabulous floral prints.
The wonderful range of available colors ensures there is something to reflect every mood and flatter every skin tone and hair shade. If you want to be bright and the center of attention there are vibrant shades of raspberry, mango, jade, sapphire and periwinkle to choose from. If you prefer a sultrier look there are darker colors that include cobalt, charcoal and claret, forest, navy and wine. For light relief there are romantic pastels such as champagne, ivory, rosewater, light blue and cobalt rose to tempt you.
Alyce are not shy when it comes to eye catching embellishments. There is an extensive use of intricate beading on bodices, necklines and waistlines, vying for attention with lace appliques, metallic embroidery and stand out features such as chandelier beaded accents. Beading may be subtle and romantic, demand attention in a bold geometric pattern or add symmetry with stripes. No detail is overlooked as overlapping layers of light tulle ruffles are trimmed with horsehair and the finest of spaghetti straps are inset with beads. Corset bodices feature wide illusion midriffs adorned with faux boning and trumpet skirts showcases cascading ruffles running from the back waistline to the tip of the sweep train.
There are many recurring features that appear on different styles of dresses, allowing you to fall for a feature and find it on the dress that is your personal favorite. If you favor a touch of floral you can opt for a floral print bodice on a ball gown with a solid color skirt, or choose a floral print skirt paired with an off-the-shoulder crop top in a mix and match two-piece. If your desire is to look ravishing in ruffles you can be lured by a trumpet skirt with side ruffles, a full-length A-line skirt with a ruffled high-low hemline or a ball gown skirt with overlapping tiers of ruffles.
Crop tops are the height of fashion and there are many two-piece ensembles in the collection. The tops are available in all styles including halter, strapless sweetheart, strapless straight, off-the-shoulder, flounced and illusion necklines. Crop tops are often finished with beaded or scalloped midriffs. Two-piece dresses represent very good value for your dollar as the tops and skirts can be worn with other key pieces from your wardrobe. While crop tops are fun and flirty there are dresses with dropped waist bodices that are very sexy as they cling sensually to the curves.
In addition to midriff baring two-pieces there are many dresses with an accent on the midriff, whether it is through illusions or cutouts. One piece dresses offer a great variety of necklines, replicating the crop tops and also including jewel necklines, scoop necklines, V-necklines, Sabrina necklines and bateau necklines. Illusion necklines are adorned with beads or lace appliques and often top sweetheart bodices. If you love a plunging neckline but worry about the modesty factor, many of the deepest necklines in the collection are inset with sheer panels, some color matched to the gown. When embroidery is used on a top or bodice it is often mirrored as a border above the hemline of a skirt.
Most of the dresses are sleeveless or strapless, but if you prefer a little cover for the shoulders there are cap sleeve options, short sleeves and sleeves created from overlaying flounces. Cutout backs are another fashion hit that has caught on at the prom. Many of the dresses feature cutout backs or have open backs with straps sweeping from the nape of the neck to create the image of a cutout. Cut-in shoulders are another popular feature used to accentuate the neckline and create an interesting angle against a full back. This collection also showcases lace-up backs, semi-open backs and racer backs. Fine straps crisscross over open backs in a variety of ways with great appeal. Sweep trains add a touch of glamour to many of the gowns, perfect for projecting an aura of elegance as you make your entrance.
Alyce Paris appreciate that girls come in many shapes and sizes and create their designs to cover sizes ranging from 0 to 32. A figure hugging fitted dress can suit a slim or curvy body, while the ever popular A-line is perfect for every figure. If you like the sophistication of a long dress but still want to display a bit of leg there are plenty of styles with skirts offering provocative mid-thigh sides slits or dresses that finish in high-low hemlines to showcase the legs to advantage.
