“Parting the Sea” by John Galliano
Simple but elegant at the same time. It has a zip in the back and sparkly straps that are attached to the sleeve cuffs on either side of the shoulders so they can drape down the arms. This is one of the favorite 1980s popular prom dresses because it’s just so different from all the other dresses that were being worn at prom that year. There is a lot of detail to this dress and it’s made with some great fabrics.
Dolce & Gabbana Prom Dress
This dress was made from silk crepe with a satin lining. It has a zip up back and spaghetti straps. There are also pleats in the front of the skirt that were sewn on by hand.
“Perfect Prom Dress” by Polly Morgan
This dress is another top favorite because it’s just so different. The colors and styling make it the perfect alternative to the typical black, white, or red dresses that everyone else was wearing at prom that year. Also love the back details on this dress. The fabric looks like a lace overlay but these are actually satin panels sewn together for an amazing effect.
Chanel Prom Dress
This dress is loosely based off of the “Rag and Bone” dress from the film “Swingers.” It has a back zipper and a bow in the back. The color of this dress was called “Velvet.”
Pacsafe Prom Dress

“Queen of Prom” by John Galliano
This dress has a back zip. As we all know, this was not an option to be found in most prom dresses made during the 80’s but thankfully this was an exception. This dress looks like a lace overlay but it’s actually a fully lined satin dress.
