Readers of Seventeen magazine, and other fashion and celebrity rags will probably recognize many some of these chic, Clarisse Prom dresses.
From the minds of designers Adriana Maria and Clari Farkash, whose tastes range from greats like Alexander McQueen and Christian Dior, too the old masters like Coco Chanel, comes this unique and innovative line of black-tie evening wear, for prom, parties, homecoming, and beyond.
For the wild, back-to-nature woman, the Clarisse collection of prom gowns features loads of roaring leopard, cheetah, and animal prints utilized in linings, sheer overskirts, and panels. They are going to hear you roar for sure in one of these untamed creations.
For the comfort queen, soft jersey knits hug your curves and hold their shape while feeling super soft against the skin.
For the glam gam girl, there are super short prom dresses and short party dresses that hit well above the knee, finished with a curly lettuce hemline that make the skirt stand-out to its full potential. And if short prom dresses are not your thing, there are plenty of formal floor length looks, traditional A-line ballgowns, and poufy tulle dresses.
For the pattern princess you will find swirling black and white patterns as well as two-tone color combinations, the bolder the better.
For the show-off, the collection includes plenty of curve enhancing fit-and-flare styles, some with side cutouts along the waistline and back.
For the movie girl, fans of the film The Hunger Games and fans of Jennifer Lawrence can rejoice, because two of the dresses in the collection are remarkably similar to the dress Katniss wore for her interview. The first starts with a simple V-neck slip dress, beneath a rhinestone encrusted band that embraces the waist and neck, with a T strap running down the center of the decollate. Another similar look has a high collar halter neckline and sheer accents at the midriff, fitted and flared with a dazzling display of gems embracing the midsection and neck.
And finally, for those who wish to stand apart from the crowd, there are a number of modern, yet elegant prom dresses. One unique fit-and-flare style features origami folds creating structured ruffles along the bottom flare, with a front slit that opens up from just above knee. Origami style folds are huge trend this season, seen on many red-carpet A-listers whose names we cannot mention. Another dress features a high-low front with a contrasting color layer revealed underneath.
