Prom. It's a word that tends to come with a lot of pressure.
For my prom, I wanted it to be perfect; the perfect hair, the perfect makeup, and of course, the perfect outfit. When it came to my attire, I decided to go with something a bit unconventional. I wanted to highlight my South Asian heritage, while still wearing something that was considered trendy in North American culture.
At the time, I questioned whether it was a good idea. But looking back now, I’m proud of myself for being unique and putting my style and heritage out there.
So as you get ready for prom, or any other special event, don't be afraid to go with something a little different. Standing out can be a good thing.
One of my favourite South Asian designers is Satya Paul. Be sure to check out the sale section!
