Prom Gown Contest

LaBré seeks to ensure that young women who can’t afford a prom gown have the opportunity to enjoy their high school proms without having to pay hundreds of dollars for a prom dress.  A recent survey from Visa revealed that the average US family plans to spend about $919 on a prom-going teen.  For every 7 prom gowns sold, LaBré will donate a free prom dress to an in-need Philadelphia high school student who cannot afford a prom gown.

LaBré is enthused to give young ladies a beautiful, custom made prom dress, generate global visibility of African fashion designers, and create economic opportunities for African designers, seamstresses, and tailors by sourcing our gowns directly from Ghana and Nigeria. Each LaBré gown is made in Ghana by LaBré seamstresses and tailors.
