Cardboard prom dress: Missouri teen makes a fashion statement
The 17-year-old tells NPR that it took "lots of hot glue" and some late nights to make the dress work. She'd originally planned to go with an all corrugated cardboard design, but incorporated paper bags at the last minute because of some trouble with the cardboard.
After graduation, Pozek is thinking about going into elementary education though she tells NPR that fashion design is still an option.
And, yes, she had a back-up plan: "Duct tape and an extra dress."
