Camille La Vie Makes Prom Dreams Come True at The Glam of Giving
Prom dresses for a good cause? That sums up The Glam of Giving, which took place at the Vince Lombardi Center of Hope in Newark, NJ on Friday, April 15. The event had one objective: helping underprivileged girls look and feel like a princess for their prom. Here at Camille La Vie, we strive to help every girl find "the one" - from prom dresses to wedding dresses and beyond. Memories from these special events last a lifetime, and the perfect dress only adds to the magic.
Camille La Vie gifted 30 of the 150 prom dresses at the event, contributing to the shoes and accessories donated by other New Jersey vendors as well. Dozens of excited teenage girls shopped the racks, with the company of Miss Newark and Miss New Jersey USA Alexandra Lakhman.
The girls come from modest-income families who simply can't afford to spend $300 or more on a prom dress. Fourteen-year-old Jaylene Santana, who was seeking a gown for her eighth grade prom, found her dream dress from Camille La Vie. "It's just so beautiful! It makes me feel like a Disney princess...like a better version of myself," she said, holding her pastel pink embroidered style.
The right prom dress goes beyond a picture-perfect appearance; but rather empowering young women to feel beautiful in their own skin. Prom isn't just the average school dance; it's a night to dress to the nines, connect, and have fun with your classmates. To us, that's a feeling worth celebrating.
