HENDERSON — For the fourth year in a row, fashion design students from the International Academy of Design & Technology, a design-focused college in Henderson, are designing and creating custom prom dresses for 10 at-risk high school students as part of IADT’s Pretty for Prom program.

High school students were chosen by school administrators and faculty through collaboration with the CCSD School-Community Partnership Office. The program was created to reward CCSD students who have faced challenges and adversity for making good decisions, academic accomplishments, and exemplary citizenship.

IADT students donate considerable time to design and sew the dresses. They work in close collaboration with the girls who will be receiving the dresses to create a true dream dress. Other sponsors include Euphoria Institute of Beauty Arts & Sciences, whose advanced design team will provide hair and make-up to the 10 girls the day of Pretty for Prom, and General Growth Properties, owner of Fashion Show and Meadows Mall, which donated $100 gift cards to each girl for shoes and accessories.

The design process culminates in a special event at 2 p.m. Saturday, March 22. Pretty for Prom is part of Jr. League of Las Vegas’ Fashion Forward event, in which more than 50 local high school fashion students participate in a fashion design competition.
