At the most recent editionn of Istanbul Fashion Week, Turkish label Damat/Tween presented a 2011 spring/summer collection with the them of Prom Boys & Girls.
Prom is short for promenade. At the end of the students’ senior year in the United States in Canada, a formal black tie dance called “the Prom” is held.
Some schools differentiate between a Senior Prom and Junior Prom, while many other countries have equivalents to the US and Canadian proms.
Nevertheless, guys normally rent a tuxedo, buy their date a corsage, and take a formal picture of the couple.
Oftentimes, a Prom Queen is chosen, as well as a Prom King and Prom Court—all very regal sounding!
Historians trace the origins of proms to the late 1800’s.
