Online sites, such as Piol Dress and Coco Myles, guide their users through the process of designing a personalized dress. Their online tools go through the stages required to design a dress, such as color, shape, length and accessories.
Other sites, such as Dornink, allow various elements of existing designs to be chosen and then put together to create a unique design. There are also fun online systems, such as the one at Y8, where one can choose from existing colors and patterns to create a prom dress. Also useful are wedding dress sites, such as Wedding Dress Creator, which can help to inspire ideas to design that very special prom dress.
