The invitation has arrived and the long anticipated moment for prom dress shopping is finally here. Excitement is in the air as you and your friends decide where to get prom dresses with glamorous appeal. Luckily Madame Bridal is up with the hottest trends and sells amazing collections of online prom dresses. For many years Madame Bridal has partnered with the House of Wu, offering prom girls the opportunity to browse their exclusive Studio 17 collection of long prom dresses. This coveted label has something to suit every taste and style, from sumptuous ball gowns to figure flattering trumpet gowns. There are A-line dresses, fitted prom dresses and dresses with fit and flare silhouettes to choose from. Each of the formal evening gowns in the Studio 17 collection of affordable prom dresses has a special feature to tempt you and an inbuilt wow factor.
For more than two decades the House of Wu has created beautiful gowns across a range of collections, focusing on fit, fabrication and design. The Studio 17 line of standard and two piece prom dresses is the inspired creation of designer Jay Reynolds and the influence of his earlier work with pageant dresses can be seen in this exciting collection of striking maxi dresses. Studio 17 prom dress styles exude panache in bold and colorful evening gowns that capture the imagination. Reynolds loves to work with fine fabrics and this collection exhibits his penchant for lace, satin and chiffon dresses. Delicately cascading cute dresses with ball gown silhouettes are as representative of his design style as the sexy fitted prom dresses that combine elegance with sensuality. Reynolds is accustomed to designing for celebrity clients and you will feel like a celebrity as you model one of his classy dresses.
Studio 17 dresses and two-piece ensembles feel and look luxuriant in a wide range of fabulous fabrics. In addition to satin, lace and chiffon, Studio 17 creates long formal dresses in Mikado, laser cut sequin, jersey, brocade, glitter tulle and stretch taffeta. Fabric combinations provide a play on texture and there is an element of surprise as a beaded lace crop top is paired with a floral print trumpet skirt or a lace halter bodice leads into a vibrant floral satin ball gown skirt.
Colors range from pastel to deep warm tones, with less emphasis on formal black dresses. Soft pastel shades can be seen in blush, spearmint and pink, while rich hues of magenta, fuchsia and teal represent the other side of the rainbow spectrum. If your heart is set on a blue dress for the prom you can choose between shades of aqua, turquoise and royal. For something different you will be delighted with the choices in apple, daffodil and cerise, or fall in love with a two-tone tulle design that blends colors.
Exquisite beading is a signature touch on the gorgeous prom dresses in the Studio 17 line. Beading embellishes strapless bodices with sweetheart neckline and sweetheart bodices with illusion necklines. Neatly beaded trim edges crop top midriffs and accentuates waistlines, adorns crossover bodices and bodices with basque waistlines. Beaded shoulder straps shimmer as they draw attention to necklines and beaded trim accents side midriff cutouts and halter necklines. Delicately beaded floral embroidery adds a pretty touch to flowy prom dresses with tulle and chiffon skirts. Beading can be either bold or subtle, all attention grabbing or a simple finishing touch. It may comprise heat set stones and silver crystals, color matched beads and shiny gold touches. It adds compelling contrast as a strapless beaded bodice with a high empire waistline gives way to glossy satin skirt with no need for any adornment.
The prom is a rite of passage that is the highlight of the school year. Proms were originally known as promenade dances but this formal term is now largely forgotten. Some schools impose a standard dress code of what they consider appropriate. Tall leggy girls can be sure they do not violate the short dress fingertip rule by making their dress selection from maxi dresses that covers the legs. There is no chance that the voluminous skirt of a ball gown prom dress can be considered inappropriate. There will be no concerns about the length of the dress when you choose one of the long prom dresses from the Studio 17 by House of Wu collection.
If you like the idea of flashing some leg there are some daring choices with mid-thigh side slits on the skirts, or the option of short fitted dresses with cascading open front A-line overskirts creating high-low prom dresses. Another concern girls may have ahead of the prom is worrying one of their friends may choose the same dress, but this can be avoided by savvy pre-prom sharing of dress choices on social media.
There is no doubt that the choice of the dress is the most important aspect of the prom for many girls. Some girls will keep the dress as memorabilia after the event, but smart girls will look for a dress that can be worn again for other events. Two-piece outfits are a great way of getting extra mileage from a fancy dress that can be a major expense. Versatile two-piece ensembles have a range of crop tops in many styles that can be paired with other wardrobe staples. There are simple sleeveless lace crop tops with spaghetti straps and brilliantly beaded crop tops with halter and illusion necklines. Some are even completed with long or short sleeves to create a totally different look.
Along with the choice of dress great thought and preparation goes into hair, make-up and accessories. Guys look for the perfect tux and select corsages that will complement their dates dress. With so much attention to detail bestowed on the ultimate prom look it is no surprise that arriving in style has become another necessity. Couples often hire a limousine as their transport of choice to make a stylish entrance, while groups of friends may also be tempted by a limo or a party bus. Modern prom attendees ensure plenty of selfies are taken before, en route to the prom, and at the grand school event. One way to look your absolute best in the photos and during the evening is to choose one of the gorgeous prom dresses from Studio 17. Prom girls come in all shapes and sizes and Studio 17 recognizes their differences by incorporating plus size prom dresses into the collection. Some of the styles are available in sizes to flatter the fuller figure and can be ordered in sizes up to 30. Curvaceous girls can find a dreamy dress to suit their shape and will not feel excluded by finding their dream dress is only available in smaller sizes. These plus size evening dresses are exact replicas of the other dresses in this fabulous line.
Long formal dresses from Studio 17 are always exciting and enticing. They are styled to draw attention and have many wonderful features that make them stand out. Beautifully beaded waistlines focus the eye on a cinched waist to accentuate hour glass figures while other waistlines featured in this collection include basques, inverted V-waistlines and empire waistlines. A two-piece dress exposes a bare midriff while cutout midriffs give a hint of exposure. There are illusion midriffs to give the impression of faux two-piece formal evening gowns and dropped waistlines to give emphasis to a fit and flare or trumpet silhouette. There are plunging V-necklines which open to the waistline and keyhole bodices with just a subtle hint of flesh exposed. The stunning dresses in this collection are designed by a master who cares that you will look exquisite on this special night.
Studio 17 by House of Wu prom dresses promises a superb style that is mesmerizing and will make every moment of your prom experience memorable.
