The prom season got off to a shiny start as Avery Greene, the reigning Miss Victoria, stepped confidently down the runway modeling a dull gold prom gown, fitted at the waist and flaring at the knee.

Greene, along with the other models, was dressed to the nines as she waited to walk down the makeshift runway outside of Dillards.

"I didn't eat breakfast just to make sure I could fit into this thing," Greene said, laughing. "I'm really glad I get to take part in this."

The annual Dillards Prom Show, previewing prom and after-prom fashions, went off without a hitch in the Victoria Mall just outside of the department store.

"We're doing our prom event to show off all of the different looks that are coming out this year for prom," Aimee Slayton, the general manager of Dillards, said.

Gary Moses emceed the event while 13 models from the Debbie Bennett Green Dance Studio modeled this year's prom fashions.

A crowd gathered around the stage, examining different styles of dresses, makeup and hair.

Cuero High School student Melanie Guerrero already has her prom dress, but was still looking for different ideas for hair, makeup and accessories.

"This is pretty cool. The dresses are pretty. I'm definitely looking for ideas," Guerrero said.

The department store puts on the fashion show every year to give people an idea about what some of the trends will be for the dance, Slayton said.

This year, prints are popular, as are shorter dresses and dresses that are form fitting to the knee before flaring out in a full skirt. Metallic colored gowns are also being seen a lot.

Dillards sales manager Mary Grace Perez said the event helps people figure out what's in style and is also good for the store.

"We definitely see an increase in business because of this. Whenever you have an event like this, it creates excitement and just makes people want to shop," Perez said.
