Designer Spotlight: Jonathan Kayne

Designer Spotlight: Jonathan Kayne
Project Runway alum Jonathan Kayne was always criticized for his designs looking too “prom” or “pageant”. When he was voted off the show he decided they were right, he was made for the prom and pageant industry! He started his own brand “Jonathan Kayne” and has been sought out by pageant beauties of all ages. His eye for fashion and creative thinking has brought him great fame in the industry. He was the first to create an “LED” light up prom dress and his designs have continually pushed the envelope! Cinderella’s Closet is a proud retailer of Jonathan Kayne! Shop here

Modeling Tips! Be prepared for the Teen Board modeling auditions!

In spirit of our Teen Board modeling auditions this Saturday  8/25 we want to provide a few tips for girls to help them land the position! We hope this helps!

1. Look the part - Wear an outfit that shows off your personal style and personality. Just don't overdo it! The judges still want to see your figure.

2. Show your personality - Teen Board girls will be modeling all of our newest dresses in store, either as a live mannequin or walking in one of our many fashion shows, but they will also be a spokesperson for the Cinderella's Closet company. When the judges ask you a question, speak clearly and with enthusiasm. Bring up any special hobbies, school organizations you are involved in, sports you play, volunteer work you have done, etc. Importantly, be yourself!

3. Practice - Though no modeling experience is necessary to land a spot on the Teen Board, you may still want to flip through some fashion magazines to recreate some poses from your favorite supermodel. Think of this as extra credit and the judges will take notice!

Designer Spotlight: Sherri Hill

Ask a group of girls from ages 13-22 who their favorite prom designer is and chances are they will unanimously say “Sherri Hill”. Sherri Hill is a world renowned designer hailing from Oklahoma. Her special occasion designs are unmatched when it comes to quality, price, and design, so much, in fact everyone from pageant queens to Hollywood celebrities have taken notice. Carrie Underwood, Selena Gomez, and Paris Hilton among others are huge fans of Sherri Hill and have worn her beautiful dresses for the cover of magazines, performances, and red carpet events all over. Sherri Hill doesn’t follow the trends, she sets the trends. We think her earth-shattering “Rockstar” Collection has been her most popular work to date with its cool multicolored sequin bustiers and flirty ruffled skirts. What girl do you know doesn’t want to be seen dripping in diamonds? We love her sexy short dresses, her flowing long dresses, and her fabulous ball gowns. Whatever you need, Sherri Hill’s got it! 

Here are some of Sherri Hill's signature dress styles:

Before you order....

Online dress shopping can be tough, especially when you aren't able to preview exactly how your desired dress will look in person and on your body. Here are some tips to make the process easier:

1. Take your measurements: This is the most important factor while online dress shopping. For special occasion dresses sizes are numbers, not S,M,L, and XL. Measure your bust, waist, and hips in inches for the best result. Sizes can be tricky, just because you are usually a size 2 in dresses you could run larger in special occasion dresses. It also depends on the brand. You could be a size 6 in Jovani and a size 8 in Tony Bowls. Remember you are responsible for which size dress you choose to wear.

2. Order as early as possible. Providing the correct measurements are the best way to ensure that your dress will fit but none of the dresses are custom made to fit your exact body type. Allow enough time when ordering for possible alternations.
