The 2k18 prom season for our US babes has now concluded, and to say we saw some draw-dropping customer photos – would be an understatement.
Now, if you are an Australian girl, and have ‘Formal’ marked on your 2018 social calendar, then it is pretty safe to say you’re probably stressing about the age-old question of ‘what the hell, am I going to wear?!‘.
Don’t sweat it girl, we’ve got you covered. From simple elegance, to sex appeal – we’ve rounded up our top looks rocked by our US customer’s during this year’s PROM SEASON.
So, sit back, relax, and take note on the tips we’ve got to give you for the 2k18 Australian Formal Season.
If you love all things extra, glittery, and elegant, then this trending style is for you.
Metallic shades have transitioned from celebrity red-carpets, to setting the 2018 prom season alight with glittering tones of rose gold, blush hues.
This celebrity trend is elegant, timeless, and flattering to all skin tones.
From princess-gown, to mermaid – this striking trend is easily accessible throughout a range of our A&N Luxe Collection styles.
Both gowns allow you to show off a hint of skin, whilst remaining super glamorous and sophisticated.
We recommend opting for a clash of colour, when accessorising our metallic shaded gowns. You can achieve this by mixing rose gold with matte nude, or red.
Complete your dream-formal look, by replicating a celebrity inspired beauty look.
Below is just a few of our favourite customer photos featuring the two trending styles to help you get inspired.

If there is one piece of advice I can give to all you ladies looking for a formal gown, it would be – ‘It’s never too early to begin searching for the perfect gown’.
Below we’ve complied a list of our top 4 buying tips, to help make your formal shopping experience a little easier:
We find a lot of our customer’s get a nasty shock (as well as their parents) when purchasing a formal gown.
Start by doing your research on our gowns in advance to making a purchase, and being realistic to the quality and tailoring time placed into producing your dream gown – This way, you are aware of what is doable within your budget.
As we have over 370 beautiful designs in our A&N Collection – choosing the perfect gown, isn’t an easy task.
Therefore we recommend that you start browsing our collection sooner rather than later – as we do not want any of our customers to feel stressed during their experience.
Also, if you have a desired style in mind, for example: a ‘red satin gown w slit’ – then, please make sure to search these ‘key words’ via our search bar at the very top of website.
This is a genius way of narrowing down your selection, and finding your dream gown sooner than expected.
Now, ladies, this tip has got to be the most important of all.
As our A&N Collection is entirely made up of ‘made-to-order products’ – we recommend, placing an order AT LEAST 3-4 weeks in advance (depending on the gown requested) before the date of your event.
During prom/formal season, our website EXPLODES with young women searching for their perfect gown. So, during this period, we do recommend adding an additional 1 week – to ensure you can receive your gown in time.
Now, I know with online-ordering we’ve all feared our dream piece of clothing is going to arrive and not look as it does online, or WORSE – BE THE WRONG SIZE.
Well, no need to stress girl! Cause’ we’ve obliterated this issue by allowing majority of our A&N Collection to be custom-made based on our customers custom-body measurements, including: bust, waist, hips, & height.
This means, you can order your dream gown without the stress of not knowing if the gown will fit perfectly upon arrival.
Not to brag or anything, but we can also custom-make most our gowns to a variety of custom colours at special request. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for a swatch card.
Please see the below video attached, on how to place an order for your dream gown in accordance to your custom-body measurements.
Our ‘made-to-order’ gowns can be further adjusted in the following ways for a small fee:
– Add/Remove a slit
– Add/Remove sleeves
– Add additional train
Please see the below video on how to add these customisations to your gown when placing the order.
