On April 8, Estelle Schlossberg, owner of Estelle’s Dressy Dresses, responds to an article published by The Midland Daily News, which details a dress swap organized by a community organization in Oregon.
According to The Midland Daily News, prom dress swapping has become a national trend among teenage girls. In an effort to offset prom costs, many community organizations are hosting dress swapping events or prom dress giveaways.
Recently, reports Midland Daily News, two Beaverton, Ore. residents from the Beaverton Area Business Association (BABA) sponsored a dress swap event called, “Say Yes to the Prom Dress.”
According to the Midland Daily News, the event was promoted at local schools and pictures of the dresses were posted on Pinterest. Over 400 dresses were donated, the article says.
“Finding ways to repurpose dresses is a great way to keep the spirit of prom alive,” Schlossberg says. “Some of these dresses are so beautiful that it would a shame to see them sitting in a closet.”
Schlossberg adds that it’s nice to see so many people helping each other out in this financial crisis. “No girl should be denied the ability to look fabulous on her prom night because of financial hardships.”
As a leading retailer of [Long Island prom dresses, Schlossberg reminds consumers that prom night is right around the corner, which leaves limited time to find the right dress. “Prom dresses are flying off the shelves now,” she says. “Events that provide gently used dresses are also a hit. If you haven’t begun searching for a prom dress now, I encourage you to get started now.”
