Duck Dynasty's Sadie Robertson posted Tuesday on Facebook a picture of herself wearing a red dress from Sherri Hill Line of prom dresses in the Louisiana swamp. The prom dress, including ones that she modeled in at the Sherri Hill's New York Fashion Week on Sept. 9th, is part of her effort to create a clothing line that promotes modesty, a biblical value and a matter of heart that are increasingly unfamiliar in today's fashion trends.
The 16-year-old reality TV star has attracted much attention after modeling in the prom dresses that received her daddy Willie Robertson's approval at fashion show in New York, where the entire Robertson clan attended the event to show their support.
Sadie, who is a high school student from Monroe, Louisiana, realizes that God has given her fame through the TV show in order to make a difference for Christ. Aside from inheriting the athleticism that runs in her family's genes, she has inherited most importantly her family's faith in Christ and made it her own. She and her best friend Kolby Koloff has been producing weekly video devotionals on Monday nights called "The New Different."
While being unashamed about her Christian faith, Sadie wishes to also make a difference for Christ by being a good example to other young women. She teamed up with popular design for young women's formal wear to create the "Sadie Robertson Live Original by Sherri Hill" collection. While the gowns are designed by Hill, she would choose which dresses she wanted as part of her modest clothing line.
"I think it's awesome that people see something in me that's different, but it's really a challenge to me and my spiritual way and everything. If little girls are looking up to me, I've got to be the example they need. If I'm going to claim that I'm different from everybody else on TV, I've got to be different than everybody else. It's encouraging to me and really helping me to be a better person," she told TC Magazine in an interview.
The prom dresses collection will be available in the spring of 2014.
