Wherever you choose to wear one of the stunning Janique prom dresses you will attract attention and own the room. These gowns are suited to the prom but are equally at home at the opera or swanky black tie events. Whenever you want to be noticed and appreciated for your elegant, sophisticated and understated seductive style then Janique has the dress of your desires. Janique creates full-length stand out silhouettes that flatter the body to perfection with precision fit. Kourosh exhibits his mastery of luxuriant touches though impeccable details such as contrasting fabrics revealed in a high-low prom dress, his use of luscious capes that cascade from the shoulders of maxi dresses or slim fitting jumpsuits, and the meticulous finish offered by shimmering beaded cuffs on long sleeve dresses.
A definite stand out feature of the Janique collection is the vibrant use of contrasting linings on dresses with high-low hemlines. A gorgeous champagne floral print A-line number with a strapless sweetheart neckline will reveal a shocking purple lining and a straight strapless bright red A-line dress will surprise with a bold fuchsia lining. Similarly the yellow lining exposed by the high-low hemline of a black floral print ball gown is unexpected and daring. Janique makes bold use of prints and utilizes strong colors throughout the collection. The color palette encompasses a wide spectrum running from white, ivory, blush, ice-blue and blue, through to violet, emerald, red, navy, chartreuse, wisteria, pink, yellow, teal, gray and black. Black is a slimming choice for the skin tight jumpsuits which make such a statement in the collection, be it in black lace over a nude lining or solid black with stand out features such as long sleeves with cold shoulders or a pearl embellished halter shawl collar atop a peplum waist bodice. Other features used to stunning effect include bejeweled off-the-shoulder necklines, keyhole bodices, fluted asymmetrical necklines and bead embellished one-shoulder short sleeves.
No matter what silhouette you choose it will stand out in the unique way it molds so elegantly to the body. Kourosh is a master of the tailored silhouette that feels so natural against the figure that you will not be self conscious while wearing it, but rather at ease knowing your chosen dress fits with effortless ease. The flare of a trumpet silhouette is undoubted in its sharp angles and the delicacy of the fit and flare silhouettes created is marked by the fluidity of the way the gown flows romantically. Ruffles are prominent and pronounced as they adorn ball gown skirts or cascade from the back waistline of a trumpet gown. Fitted silhouettes cleave to the figure and draw attention to your curves in a modest way that still exudes sensuality. There are long formal dresses with fitted monochrome silhouettes that flaunt open front A-line overskirts in vibrant floral prints. The high-low hemlines that complete the full A-line silhouette dresses are joyous and flirty, designed to showcase your verve and zest for life.
Janique special occasion dresses exude drama and dare. They are not for the faint hearted but rather created for the confident woman at ease in her own skin. It takes a certain panache to carry off a dress or jumpsuit with a cascading cape and it takes confidence to move at ease in a long fitted jersey gown with deep cutout bodice sides accented with sheer insets. Janique is designed for women who carry themselves with confident ease and possess innate womanly sophistication.
The embellishments used throughout the Janique collection of couture dresses are always refined and notable for the exquisiteness. Elaborate attention to detail is shown in the carefully selected strings of beads that accent illusion backs, the delicacy of three-dimensional floral lace appliques adorning illusion bodices and the shimmering silver beaded straps that so artfully frame necklines. Delicate gossamer ruffles trim skirts so romantically while structured tiers of ruffles showcase attitude. Beaded appliques and floral embroidery create strong statements that ensure these formal evening gowns will be remembered long after the event. Some of the designs are exceptionally sophisticated in their simplicity and require no added adornments or only the simplest of embellishments such as a scattering of beads along a staples sweetheart neckline or the addition of a beaded belt to draw attention to a nipped in waistline. A figure hugging jersey gown needs nothing more than a sensuous slit that reveals a leg to be perfect in its sleek simplicity.
Once you discover the allure of Janique, the quality feel of the fabrics and the way the silhouettes flatter your figure, you will be hooked. You may first discover Janique for your Senior prom dance but will then find it is a name you want to stick with as you venture into other evening events that require a sophisticated image.

Kourosh has the experience to excel in designing classy gowns that are not too revealing and this makes his line stand out in contrast to other prom collections that are much more revealing. It introduces a mystique that is intriguing, while his use of vibrant prints creates a refreshing vibe that appeals to carefree women.
