These days, everything prom has become a big deal.

From proposals to picking out the best prom dress, prom is all about outshining everyone else.

18-year-old Kyemah McEntyre couldn't have done it better, sketching and designing her own dress for her senior prom.

Not only was the design breathtaking, the fact that it was in the traditional Ghanaian 'Kente' print, just killed it.

Kyemah wore a full dashiki print gown and a full fro to prom, complete with a choker and headpiece.

Kyemah is something of a conscious creator and her choice of fashion says it all.

Although she sketched and design the dress herself, the outfit came to life with the help of Markell Evette of Markell’s Closet.

The dress and Kyemah’s poignant comments about Eurocentric beauty and fashion standards helped her become a social media sensation.

Not only did she take home the prom queen title, her dress went on to make her an internet sensation.

Kyemah says she will be enrolling in the Parson’s School of Design in New York this fall.

Congratulations to Kyemah!
