Meet Dina Daubenberger and her fabulous team of stylists!
I have always loved fashion from an early age. However, my story is a bit different than most boutique owners or dress designers. I went to Villanova Law School and practiced law for almost 10 years. When I stopped practicing, I had two small daughters and was a competing ballroom dancer. I needed to purchase a competition ballroom gown until I realized they cost thousands of dollars. Ballroom Dress Rental was started in 2007, as a rental business. Today, it has turned into a custom design and resale business as well. Our dresses have been featured in several movies, commercials and tv shows. The latest one being the Geico commercial “This Bowler Knows How to Strike a Pose”.
For 10 years, I was asked if I carried or made prom, formal or evening dresses. Realizing there was a need for this service in my area, I started PromMiss Dresses in 2017. We are one of the only dress boutiques carrying a dress for every woman. You could be an 8th grader going to a dance, going to a prom, a black tie wedding, a bridesmaid, mother of the bride and now bridal. We have something for every age, shape and budget. We have dresses you could wear to a nice dinner all the way to the most formal affair.
In September 2022, I was crowned United States of America's Ms. Pennsylvania 2023. I am honored with this responsibility and look forward to the year ahead promoting my platform, AdvizHer, which provides no-cost education, funding, and community to young women who have the desire to become entrepreneurs. Through sales from PromMiss, AdvizHer will give a merit-based scholarship in 2023 to a young woman to turn her idea into reality.
Every prom sale will contribute to this scholarship fund. I love being able to help women find the dress that makes them feel gorgeous and confident. When you feel beautiful on the inside, it shows on the outside. Our goal is to have every woman feeling confident and beautiful in their own skin.
