What happens when GLAM4GOOD has 2 hours to help 70 very deserving girls turn into prom queens? Check out the video and pictures in the album below of the incredible prom event we called #GLAMSLAM that left so many young women feeling empowered, inspired and dressed to the nines for their high school proms.
GLAM4GOOD was honored to partner with the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute to create a prom-themed fashion event as part of the museum's outreach to underserved youth. Seventy girls were selected from three organizations, Peace Is A Lifestyle, KIPP NYC and Links, Inc. The young ladies were led through a tour of the Costume Institute's stunning "Charles James: Beyond Fashion" exhibition, which examines the career of legendary fashion designer Charles James, and then into a prom-themed style workshop with an incredible group of volunteer stylists and fashion executives, as well as talented beauty teams from MAC Cosmetics and Suave Professionals.
GLAM4GOOD stylists, with the help of Barbara Berman Backstage, were on hand to guide the girls as they created their very own prom looks from the rack of clothing donated by iconic fashion brands like Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, H&M, Rachel Zoe, and Elizabeth and James. There were prom-inspired accessories from Nine West and Coach and over-the-top shoes and glamorous jewelry from Erickson Beamon, Betsey Johnson and Miriam Haskell on hand for the girls to create the perfect look for their high school proms. The students were encouraged to get creative and glam it up with the clothes and jewelry as they embraced the fashion themes explored in the exhibition. Best of all, this GLAM4GOOD prom shopping spree was free.
