Macy’s Prom Dresses – Dress Haute Debuts Capsule Collection

Macy’s Prom Dresses has a new designer at The Market!

Carrie Ann Lehrman, designer of Dress Haute,  debuted a Dress Haute prom, pageant and eveningwear capsule collection for young ladies and women at Macy’s North Star Mall in San Antonio, Texas on Saturday March 30, 2019.  This collection will be available for a limited time—until April 30, 2019.

“The Dress Haute collection is for all body sizes.  My collection is for everyone no matter what their size,” said Lehrman.

Barb Quinn, VP-Store Manager of Macy’s North Star Mall explained,

“Macy’s customers come in all shapes and sizes. The Dress Haute collection reflects this and is sure to connect strongly with our customers.”

Customers did, in fact, seem to connect with the Dress Haute collection.  Positioned in front of the entrance on San Pedro Ave, shoppers saw the gowns featured on runway models of all shapes and sizes. 

“All of the gowns were beautiful.  I loved that I was able to see how the gowns look on curvy girls,” said Jessica Collazo, fashion blogger at Elogios a Mis Locuras.

One of the greatest benefits of the day, was having the designer on hand as your own personal stylist.  Lehrman helped shoppers select and try on dresses, measured some to ensure the perfect fit which, in many cases, turned shoppers into Dress Haute customers.

Lehrman measured and fitted Rabago with a red floor-length, sleeveless dress accentuated with a deep-v neckline, belted waist, beaded and sequined sheath, tulle trumpet embellished with ostrich feathers and horse hair hem.  Rabago loved the dress so much she purchased it.

Toni Spikes, a 7th grader at Randolph Middle School and a track and field athlete who is known for competing in the 4×400 meter relays and discus with the Lady Ro-Hawks stopped by with her teammate and father, Timothy.  Earlier that day, she helped her team earn the distinction of “District Champions”.  Despite being fresh off a win, she tried on a two dresses from the Dress Haute collection in advance of her 7th grade dance, almost a month away.

  1. I love how someone can come in regardless of the shape and size. It somehow feels great to know that there is always something in store for you. Pretty awesome!

  2. It is so great to see someone embracing all sizes rather than just buying into society’s definition of beauty. I can’t imagine how exciting that would have been to have her as their stylist while picking their prom dress!

  3. It is SO great to see women designers featured! And I love their philosophy about dresses for all different shapes and sizes. Every body is beautiful and I think people just need things designed for them to flatter their shape. Lovely looking dresses as well.

  4. I love the outfits,they are made for real women with womanly curves.Most of the times cute dresses are being made or shown, they tend to show the smaller sizes that turn women with curves off from even looking at the dresses.
    Thanks so much for sharing.

  5. Prom is coming soon for the girls that don’t already have their dresses picked out, it would be a great idea for them to check out dresses by Dress Haute at Macy’s San Antonio to find what dresses they like.

  6. I love this idea! Prom is such a special time, and everyone should feel beautiful. Having the designer there as a personal stylist for the day was a great touch.

  7. Beautiful!! There definitely needs to be more of a selection for all girls and all body types. So glad Macy’s has included this in their stores.

  8. Awesome! This is one way to find the perfect prom dress or evening gown for that special occasion. Nothing better than to have a gown that suits your own body type and with a professional making sure you will look fabulous wearing it.
