Gown/Dress: For me, the color for this year is the shade of “orchid” but I will choose the lighter shade near to pink. With regards to the silhouette I will choose semi balloon, not full balloon. It’s a “trady” trendy look, traditional but on the trend.
Suit: About the suits, the same as the usual but with thin collar or maybe if the client wants to look unique they can choose a piña silk. It is so nice to have barong suit for prom.
