PROM PATRIOT out of style

STYLIST and fashionista Dumi Gwebu says Prom Patriots were very popular in the early 1980s. But don't try the look this year, otherwise you will land in the back of the fashion police van.

Gwebu says fabric choice can really ruin a dress. Who cares what the cut is when you look like you are wearing a sofa cover? A bad fabric is a prime offender. "Keep your 'Hello Kitty' wedding dress at home," says Gwebu.
