Red, white and black!

It’s nearly prom season and the best indicator of up and coming party dress trends is undoubtedly The Oscars. Here the world’s top designers showcase their most sensational creations, (mostly gorgeous, sometimes garish) to an international audience.

If you’re searching for that perfect prom dress or you know someone who is, then first check out what we have to offer at the UK Designer Sale on March 16th & 17th at the Royal York Hotel, Toronto. Each item is a one-off, British designed and completely unique – and amazingly any dress in our entire collection is only $30! 

Here are some of the key trends – you’ll see very similar styles at our sale.

Bows, drapes and peplums, pinched in waists, sweeping skirts: 

Long, simple and grecian (not to be confused with bridal gowns):

Strapless or one-shouldered, floor length ‘hobble’ skirts, matt (velvet and taffetta) and shine (sequins and satins):

Accessories are essential to complete your look and it’s interesting to see that belts made a popular addition to some of the most simple yet elegant gowns. Look out for velvet, broach trimmed or double wrap:

And of course the most talked about fashion style of the entire Oscar event was Angelina Jolie’s thigh high split. If you have the legs then go for it – and any dress can be easily customized to achieve this look!

So dress like a diva on prom night with a little help from the UK Designer Sale!

  1. I was wondering if the UK Designer Sale on April 6th & 7th at the Delta Meadowvale, Mississauga will have prom dresses, and will those dresses be only 30 dollars each?

    1. Hi Susan, yes we have long, short and in-between dresses. The sizes are mainly 6 and 8 Canadian since they are design room samples. They are from various British brands so the sizing comes up slightly differently from one brand to another – we have fitting rooms and encourage you to try before buying. Hope to see you there!
