Welcome to the world of the Instrumentalities of the Night, where imps, demons, and dark gods rule in the spaces surrounding upstart humanity. At the edges of the world stand walls of ice which push slowly forward to reclaim the land for the night.

Prom Night is a masterpiece of fashion feats and derring ’dos. It’s a stirring survey of taffeta, tuxedos, and tulle; a compelling compendium of baby blue, bouffants, and boutonnieres. But most of all it’s a touching reminder of that legendary night that promised to be the best night ever. Ever. Whether the theme was Stairway to Heaven or Forever Young and whether the fashion du jour was Sissy Spacek à la Carrie or prim Jackie O., the aim was to look as glamorous and sophisticated as possible.
