With prom season in full-effect, one Florida teen is slaying in a stunning gown that honors those who have fallen victim to police and state violence.

Designed by Terrance Torrence, 17-year-old Milan Morris’ floor length mermaid gown boasts black and white pictures of those whose who lives were lost too soon including Travyon Martin, Sanda Bland and Mike Brown to name a few. 

“Yes I’m Black. Yes I’m 17. Yes GOD is using me to convey a message that’s bigger than me,” the West Palm Beach high school basketball player wrote on her Instagram page.


Here’s another angle of the dress.


While haters are always gonna hate, there was a tremendous amount of support for her ability to fuse fashion with social justice:
