Get Pumped Up for Prom

Prom is something so exciting to look forward to, but it can sometimes come with a hefty price tag. Plus, lots of the dresses in stores are so unoriginal and overdone. That’s why here at Fabrictopia, we like to encourage our clients to try their hand at making their own prom dresses! Here are some popular trends that are hitting the prom scene now that you can incorporate into your own unique look.

Two-Piece Dresses

Jacqueline Evening Wear says that the new prom dress trend is two-piece dresses, and runways and red carpets across the world agree – crop tops with long, full skirts are in. If you’re looking for a style of dress that’s comfortable, trendy and fashion-forward, look no further. The options are endless. You can go with a pretty rosette satin version, or go all-in with sequins. Our spandex nylon fabrics are great for creating the top, too.


Another hot trend this prom season is illusion – illusion backs, that is, according to David’s Bridal. But when you make it yourself, you can truly take it to the next level. Instead of using a see-through or skin-toned mesh to create your own version of an illusion back, why not use a different type of fabric on the back of your dress? Something like organza or specialty lace mixed with another fabric, like our L’amour satin will give your dress a major wow-factor, while creating something that is totally unique.


To incorporate a little something extra into your outfit, make a matching clutch! You don’t have to create a clutch from scratch. Instead, grab an old one out of your closet and reupholster it with a shiny new fabric, like our quad sequin line. Voilà! A new purse and a new look for less than half the price or buying something new off the shelf.

No matter what your style is, Fabrictopia has the perfect fabric for you to make the prom dress of your dreams. Stop by our store in Houston today at 6959 Harwin Drive or call us at 713-977-0747 for more information.
