In recent years, the debutante ball has changed tremendously. Traditionally, debutantes only wore white ball gowns, pearls, and long white gloves to these formal events. In fact, near the turn of the century, it wasn't uncommon for many women to turn their white debutante dresses into wedding gowns! Today, that has changed and debutantes can wear dresses in any shape, style, color, and length. Modern debutantes often have a flair for daring styles and usually go with designer or couture frocks that flatter the silhouette while still marking the formal nature of the occasion.
At Dimitra Designs, we luckily have a wide enough selection to accommodate both modern and traditional debutantes. For more modern styles, look to our cocktail or short length couture dresses from designers like Enzoani and DaVinci. For the more traditional choices, let us introduce you to some of our favorite white debutante dresses.
While we specialize in wedding and pageant gowns, Dimitra Designs also has expertise when it comes to outfitting debutantes. Whether you choose to shop our selection online or browse our Greenville, SC showroom, Dimitra Designs has a great selection of white debutante dresses that can fit any sense of style and any silhouette. As for our favorites, well, we tend to go for gowns that mimic the trend of turn of the century debutantes. That is, the white debutante dress that doubles as a wedding gown.
