BACKGROUND:

In 1998 we started our first website, PromGirl.com, with a simple premise: people should have access to the top special occasion dresses and they should be able to shop for them online.

Fast forward to 2018 and Occasion Brands has become the leading special occasion retailer online with three brands - PromGirl, SimplyDresses, and Kleinfeld Bridal Party. We are continuously growing and have plans to introduce new special occasion stores online under the Occasion Brands umbrella. We have also brought the PromGirl experience offline with the opening of our pop-up store this past January.
