Mori Lee '08 sneak peek at our elite NYC viewing!

We just returned from a quick trip to NYC to visit Mori Lee, one of our top prom lines (and one of the top prom & bridal companies in the nation). TJ Formal was honored to be among an elite group of top stores from around the country to be the first to see Mori Lee's 2008 prom line!

We viewed dozens of beautiful prom dresses designed by Madeline Gardner and were able to critique the gowns and choose our favorites. It was an exciting experience to see these amazing dresses as they arrived straight from the factory! We gave our input on style, color, embellishments, fit and more in hopes that we would help create the best possible dresses for our customers.

We can't wait to see the finished line and to share it with you... but it will be several more months before we'll unveil the new gowns on our site. From this first taste of prom '08 it looks like bright jewel tone colors are going to be important as well as rich new iridescent taffeta fabrics. Pick-up/gathered skirts in ball gown and slimmer styles are still going strong as well as corset tie backs (that give you an excellent fit). Strapless, sweetheart and halter necklines are among the favorite for bodices which all give you a very feminine look. Short skirts are also looking popular for homecoming as well as prom for a fun, flirty style.

We're off to more manufacturer viewings soon and prom market is right around the corner, so we'll keep you updated!
