Sold-out crowd at Statesboro High for annual prom fashion show
'Into the Mystic' Frills Prom Preview

Reeves, who describes herself as a "dressing room mom," has a daughter, Alyssa, 18, who modeled in the show.

This year's Frills Prom Preview Fashion Show was the largest ever, according to Scott Marchbanks, owner of Frills by Scott. The event brings hundreds of young women to Statesboro each year - some to model on stage, and some in search of that perfect prom dress. This year's theme was "Into the Mystic."

Now in its ninth year, the event brought in a sold-out crowd of 1,200, Marchbanks said.

The show provides more than just fashion and modeling opportunities. Marchbanks said that this is the sixth year the show has allowed for a $1,000 scholarship for a young woman from any southeast Georgia county who "has a heart for service and who believes in giving back to her community."

"It is exciting to see what these young women do with their lives," he said.

Marchbanks bought Frills 10 years ago, and said there was nothing like this event at that time that showcased prom fashion, or that allowed young women the opportunity to model on stage.
