Jay Reynolds is the inspired designer responsible for creating this ultra glamorous line of Panoply special occasion dresses. He has years of experience in styling elite dresses for beauty pageants and beautiful women. One of the first things that stand out as you browse his designs is the remarkable way the silhouettes mold to the body and accentuate womanly attributes. Fitted silhouettes offer the most fabulous fit and A-line designs are perfection as they span the silhouette from flowy prom dresses to ball gown prom dresses. There is notable high drama to Panoply trumpet silhouettes and graceful elegance to the fit and flare dresses within this collection. Often the designs combine two silhouettes in one as long prom dresses with a fitted silhouette are completed with a removable cascading A-line overskirt.
Panoply features awesome maxi dresses, though there are variables on the length with high-low prom dresses. Many of the formal evening dresses finish in trains or feature removable capes that flow the full length of the dress from the shoulders. Some of the amazing designs include a two-piece ensemble showcasing a lace over jersey off-the-shoulder crop top with a removable cape flowing from the back neckline over the length of the jersey trumpet skirt. Full-length translucent chiffon capes flow over a variety of contrasting fabrics such as satin and stretch taffeta, adding a filmy finish with a feminine ethereal air.

Tightly rolled ruffles flare into a sweep train with a dramatic flourish and beading is beautifully incorporated into the gown on the illusion neckline and back. Another stunning take on the trumpet silhouette is a two-piece outfit with side ruffles adorning both sides of a full-length satin skirt with a center front slit. The skirt is paired with a lace crop top showcasing an illusion halter neckline. Pleats style the trumpet skirt of the chevron beaded Mikado gown, featuring a dropped waist bodice with a beaded illusion jewel neckline. Beaded straps frame the open back of this elegant and impressive dress.
