Graduation, prom, bridal & bridesmaids dresses

Get dressed up

Because grad only happens once

Some moments in life call for more than a little black dress. They call for grandeur—a ballgown or mermaid skirt in satins or silks. (Rhinestones optional.) They call for celebration. Grad is one of those moments—it’s once in a lifetime, so you deserve a once-in-a-lifetime dress for the occasion. A dress we promise not to sell again to your school grad. We have just the thing—no twinning, promise.


We won’t sell the same style twice to your school – not even in another colour. That’s our promise.

She said yes to the dress

I had the best time at Grad Central! Right away I was greeted and felt at ease! They grabbed all the dresses I liked and more they felt would look good. Not only were the two ladies honest and helpful but they made me felt so confident and special in my favourite dresses!
