Local Businesswoman Helps Teens Who Say They Didn't Get Their Promised Prom Dresses

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (localmemphis.com) - There’s a growing community of support for more than a dozen teens duped out of their money. 14 students claim they paid for custom prom dresses, but the designer did not deliver.

Now it’s a race against time for a Memphis businesswoman who volunteered to alter prom dresses before Friday and Saturday.

Keisha Jones, fashion designer for "Mirror Mirror,” tells Local 24 she took to Facebook in a desperate call for people to help the teens. That's when she says support began pouring in, with dozens of dresses, shoes, and jewelry.

Jones says she's now in a position to help others who may not be able to afford to go to prom.

“I'm sure there are more children in the city that need dresses at well. And with the donations we've gotten over 40-plus dresses. So I'm really excited to help the children in the community go to prom,” said Jones.

Jones and other designers are working to try and get donated dresses altered in time.

She says if your teen is in desperate need of a dress, you can stop by her Bartlett business for help. It’s at 2810 Bartlett Road, Suite Number 4.
