A local couture boutique Elite Pour La Vie hosted a fashion show featuring prom dresses on December 3rd. Madison James, a radio hostess from B98.5, presented the exclusive event while wearing a thousand dollar Terani Couture dress, which was for sale.

Models, along with four high school interns including Milton’s Hannah Johnson, walked the runway while wearing the dresses. The pieces were available for purchase with a portion donated to the American Cancer Society’s fund for breast cancer.

Owner of Elite Pour La Vie Rawan Asad described the event as “everything a teenager loves” with food, fashion and music. For a $40 ticket, student and a guardian from a Metro Atlanta high school experienced the runway show, complete with live music, a DJ, food and a gift bag.

Andrea Hummel, a junior at Cambridge High School, performed alongside a DJ with a variety of music from pop to rock. Caterers served desserts and tacos for the patrons.

A guest won the raffle including $300 towards a prom dress and an Elite Pour La Vie shopping experience for the winner and her friends. In addition, customers from each high school can only purchase one dress to “give [girls] the opportunity to have exclusive options for prom.”

Elite Pour La Vie featured designers dresses from Italy to Israel. The collection featured over 50 prom dresses which varied from short to long, sleeveless to sleeves and even backless.
