All About Prom! - 'Runway On The Runway'

Hey guys, 
I am so sorry I have been gone for a while. I have been so busy with school work, and runway! It's been crazy!!

Today I am talking all about prom!


Every girl dreams of the day they go to prom. The dress, the way you have your hair to who you go with all contribute to the feel of prom. Prom is a special thing for girls in many different ways, it could be your last year with the people that you have grown up with for the past 5 years, that could be a relief or some sorrow, or it could be a chance to express yourself through your hair, makeup, and dress.  
But what if all your plans came to a standstill due to an illness. Hundreds of girls with cancer miss their prom due to them either being too ill or being in a hospital. How would you feel if you couldn't go to your prom because of your illness?

I asked some girls questions about prom and if an illness were to affect them and their prom:


Neve, 15
Why is prom important to you? 
“Prom is important for me because it marks the end of the school year, which is a good time”

What Influences your choice of prom dress? 
“My prom dress is influenced by how it looks on me but also it cannot be too expensive”

What are you looking forward to at prom?
“I am looking forward to making memories with my friends because it is such a special event” 


Who would you go with to prom? (Friends, boyfriend, girlfriend, etc)
“I would go to prom with my friends”

What would you feel like if you missed your prom through illness? 
“I would be very upset if I missed my prom as I think it is a special event because it only happens once or twice when you are at school”


Olivia, 15 
Why is prom important to you?
“I think prom is important as it gives you a chance to dress up in nice clothes, full makeup and feel like a princess”

What Influences your choice of prom dress? 
“My main influences for prom dresses tends to be Instagram, but I love to use Pinterest as well, I already have a board made”

What are you looking forward to at prom?
“I think I'm most looking forward to the build up, getting a spray tan, getting my nails done, dress shopping, etc”

Who would you go with to prom? (Friends, boyfriend, girlfriend, etc)
“I’m definitely going to go with friends, I wouldn’t want to break up with someone later on and not be able to look at any pictures without feeling sad”

What would you feel like if you missed your prom through illness? 
“I would be devastated, I would try to power through it as I wouldn’t want to miss my one and only prom”


Lucy, 14 
Why is prom important to you?
“It’s important because it marks the end of the year and end of school with everyone together”

What Influences your choice of prom dress? 
“I think individuality influences your prom dress, it’s your own choice, no one else’s”

What are you looking forward to at prom?
“I am looking forward to prom because it gives everyone chance to be together for the final time if they are going separate ways in the future.
For example, some may or may not be going to sixth form.
It is something you will always remember”

Who would you go with to prom? (Friends, boyfriend, girlfriend, etc)
“I would go with both friends and a boyfriend as you would have a better time with everyone you love around you”

What would you feel like if you missed your prom through illness? 
“Personally, it’s not the end of the world if I missed prom”


Dannie, 16
Why is prom important to you?
“I feel like prom is important to me because it's almost like your final goodbye in a way, last chance to be with the people you've spent most of your childhood with! It's just one night to be with those people you've spent the last 4 years with, maybe more with some!”

What Influences your choice of prom dress? 
“What influences the choice of prom dress for me is firstly obviously the theme, most proms nowadays have a theme, for my year it was Hollywood glamour, so all girls came in the most beautiful dress they could find, something you would see on a red carpet. I also think looking back on other year groups and seeing what people wore then, influenced me!”

What are you looking forward to at prom?
“I'm looking forward to just having fun with all my friends and teachers! Getting in the photo booth, the food, the music! The whole thing to be honest!”

Who would you go with to prom? (Friends, boyfriend, girlfriend, etc)
“I would go with my friends, you don't need no guy!!!”


What would you feel like if you missed your prom through illness? 
“I wouldn’t be heartbroken, at the end of the day it's not the end of the world. Prom isn't the most important thing in the world :)”




For me, prom is about expressing yourself through your clothes, makeup etc. Prom is special in many different ways. Getting asked to prom by a special someone, or just the thrill of getting to party with your friends. If I were to miss due to an illness prom I would be sad but I would so something special to symbolize prom instead, something that my ability could handle.
