This glamour-filled tradition, that marks a turning point in teenage life, is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for young girls to dress up and feel elegant in a glamorous evening gown. That's why a lot of thought is put into finding the perfect dress, and every year fashion designers are introducing new styles that capture the imagination of prom-goers all over the world.
Sherri Hill is the leader in the formal dress industry that other designers look up to as an inspiration. Collections include wide variety of styles, so that every girl is sure to find a perfect Sherri Hill dress for her, regardless of her personal fashion sense, body type or skin color.
Her designs, made for fashion-forward stylish women, are recognizable for beautiful fabrics and trimmings combined with innovative combinations of cuts to accentuate the best features of each and every woman.
Fascinated by the colorful fabrics at her father's store, Sherri decided to pursue a career in fashion design from a very young age. Selling ladies’ clothing and evening wear at stores in her home state Oklahoma, and later working for 12 years as a designer for Jovani, she finally took the plunge and started her own evening gown line, which is now one of the biggest brands in formal wear.
Since she debuted her collection at New York Fashion Week she became the go-to designer for young Hollywood stars, and an inspiration for fashion divas all over the world. Many young celebrities including Selena Gomez, Kendall Jenner, Zendaya, Bella Thorne wear her dresses for formal events and stage performances. You can see her breathtaking dresses everywhere there is glitz and glamour, from red carpets and MTV awards shows to weddings and Miss Universe pageants.

The choice is huge with all the gorgeous colors and patterns available and stunning silhouettes that flatter every body type: from fit-and-flare to curve hugging. What makes these dresses really stand out are the amazing details and finishing touches: embroidered flowers, patterned beading, lace and impeccable linings and underskirts.
Sherri Hill is well known for her two piece ensembles that rocked the fashion scene in the past year. The style of choice of modern girls is the combination of a crop top and a high waisted skirt, in trendy colors like blue, teal, pink and accented with floral motifs and beadwork. Coordinated top and bottom with just a little bit of midriff showing make an outfit that is playful, but also appropriate for formal events.
Interesting twist in prom dresses are beautiful floral prints, sweet and romantic, which bring a touch of femininity. Full-length gathered floral skirts and spring-inspired short dresses are a sure way to look pretty and girly, but also dramatic, super unique and definitely unforgettable.
More elaborate styles are adorned with amazing beadwork that makes a dress look spectacular and steal the stares of party guests. Jeweled bodice or open back with beaded accent down the middle turn the attire into a work of art. Beaded stripes and abstract patterns might seem unexpected, but thanks to this intricate detailing, you won’t need to worry about accessorizing too much, as the dress speaks for itself. The craftsmanship is also reflected in the fantastic embroidery that creates a unique feel of each dress, from vintage and whimsical to bohemian.
Sherri Hill adds a touch of utter glamour to her designs by incorporating luxurious fabrics with dazzling embellishments. The epitome of elegance are the stunning long lace gowns with bateau neckline and open back, and empire waist dresses with full layered chiffon bottom. As for the colors, pastels are the trend that recently emerged and is here to stay. With variety of colors in softer hues, like purple, teal, yellow, orange, blue, coral, and more, you won’t have a problem finding a muted pastel color to perfectly complement your skin tone.
For girls that want to show off their long legs, but still keep it classy, short cocktail dresses are the best option. Short and sweet is among the top prom dress trends year after year, but Sherri Hill manages to bring something new to the scene every time. Fun cupcake bottom with tulle layered skirt, paired up with beaded bodice, strapless or with cap sleeves, makes a cute and flirty style, that is tasteful as well.
The talented fashion designer knows how to revive the formal wear with new styles. That is why you can always expect the new collection to include few truly breathtaking pieces, like the exciting dress with plunging neckline and sexy fitted silhouette with floor length ruffled organza skirt for a little drama. Elegant mermaid gown is the perfect alternative to a classic A-line.
Fancy necklines and backless gowns command attention, and make you look stunning from any angle. For the ultimate seductive look , gorgeous halter dresses with open back that allow you to show some skin and don't feel too revealed. The latest numbers perfectly balance sexy and sophisticated and accentuate the waist with cut outs. Either on the side or in the back, cutouts are a wow factor. These bold trends are guaranteed to turn heads and not go unnoticed at any event.
Embellishments add a custom-made feel to the design. Sequin dresses ooze glitz and sophistication and require very little accessories. Who needs jewelry when these dresses have sparkly details built right into them? Illusion necklaces, made with rhinestones and crystals cleverly incorporated into the dress, make a dazzling impression.
Girls that look for a princess style will fall in love with the classic ball gowns with a modern edge. Sweetheart beaded bodice with a full skirt that glides to the floor or two pieces with embellished top and a ball gown skirt are made for the real belle of the ball.
Hill’s designs range from risqué to more conservative ones. Modest elegance reflects in long sleeve gowns, and illusion dresses featuring beautiful sheer fabric with lace appliqués that look fresh and new but have the vintage feel at the same time.
To accentuate the female features and show a little leg at events at which short dresses are not appropriate, hi-lows, asymmetrical hemline and slit skirts are a flawless choice. Besides variety of silhouettes for all body types, the collection features the most popular colors like fiery red, glowing white, royal blue and timeless black, but also vibrant shades like green, fuchsia, and even gold or silver. There are also styles for those that like to go all-out on provocative.
