adidas careers uk Crowns and Gowns set for Feb
Whether she’s buying a prom dress that’s $99 or hundreds of dollars, or if she’s getting ready to enter a pageant, Crowns and Gowns aims to have something for every girl.
Hosted Feb. 2 4 at the Sandhills Convention Center in Quality Inn Suites, the weekend is two fold: the pageant aspect offers pageant workshops, gowns and head shots by a national photographer. The prom aspect offers prom gowns in all sizes as well as accessories, said Abbie Pack, Hirschfeld’s store manager. Two boutiques will bring a total of 2,000 gowns. The winners will be eligible to compete at June’s Miss Nebraska pageant in North Platte and Miss Nebraska’s Outstanding Teen in Omaha April 28. Saturday.
“That’s kind of the premier event for the weekend,” Pack said. The fashion show will also feature entertainment by Tap This, a clogging group from Lincoln; Miss Nebraska Outstanding Teen Carsyn Long, who will sing; and local talent Ciera Carlson, who will dance.
Hirschfeld’s Prom Shoppe exclusively provides the prom dresses,
while The Black Swan Dress Boutique from Lincoln brings pageant gowns.
For prom shoppers, “this will be the biggest selection of unique prom dresses in the entire Midwest,” Pack said. She added there is no event as big in Denver, Omaha or other Midwest cities. Girls come from Colorado, Wyoming and Iowa for Crowns and Gowns, she said.
Dresses come in all price ranges and sizes.
“I think it gets a really ritzy image,” Pack said, “but it really is something that is for everyone.”
Girls who are planning to enter pageants can attend workshops about nutrition, pageant interviews, social media, modeling and more. The coaches for the pageant aspect work at the national level, Pack said.
Jenn Cady, whose photography has appeared in Seventeen, Glamour and People magazines and is an official photographer for Miss America’s Outstanding Teen pageant,
will be on hand. Dress designer Ashley Lauren will also attend.
