Representatives from world-reknown designers will be at this year's seminar!

Mac Duggal |

Mac always had the desire to become a successful entrepreneur. As a young man he developed a passion for fashion often spending countless days and nights sketching and drawing women's evening wear. Arriving in the United States at the age of 23, Mac's first design was an A-line ballgown with tulle on the outside and hand painted subtle stars in the lining. He called it the "wish upon a star gown" and luckily, instantly, it was a huge success and the silhouette is still a best selling classic today.

Sherri Hill |

Sherri Hill's exclusive custom and ready-to-wear collections epitomize the fashionable lifestyle of today's thoroughly modern women. From couture one-of-a-kind designs fabricated for entrance-making, award-winning moments - to prom perfect gowns and dresses that define and set the stage for ageless fashion appeal - each authentic Sherri Hill look is designed to seamlessly enhance and fit the female form with fashion forward styling and wearability.
