But creating dream dresses for everyday women — especially those who give their all serving their communities — gives creative satisfaction a whole new meaning. That's exactly what the designers were tasked with this week, and their gorgeous dresses (and the awesome women who rocked them!) have us feeling inspired to twirl in our own eye-catching DIY looks.
