Mac Duggal, from New Delhi, India, came to the United States at just 23 years old and began designing evening wear. His uber-popular prom dresses line, named after himself, has grown into one of the largest in the prom dress industry! Mac Duggal has even expanded his company to include numerous divisions of prom dresses, including Cassandra Stone I & II, Fabulouss, Flash and a little girls pageant line called Sugar.
The first Mac Duggal prom dresses collection launched in 1985 and won international acclaim. Mac's first design was an A-line ball gown with tulle on the outside and hand painted subtle stars in the lining. He called it the "wish upon a star gown" and luckily, instantly, it was a huge success. The silhouette is still a best selling classic for prom dresses today. His success has continued over the past 25 years including receiving the DIVA 1998 Fashion Award for Designer of The Year in the Prom/Pageant category along with several other awards. Mac Duggal's designs and prom dresses have been worn by celebrities and socialites in television, movies, pageants and in the music industry. In addition Mac Duggal's designs have been showcased in high end department stores and upscale boutiques throughout the United States and Europe and are regularly featured in fashion publications; though most frequently used as prom dresses.

Located in Burr Ridge, Illinois, the headquarters for Mac Duggal Prom dresses is not far from Chicagoland. A suburb of the booming metropolitan, Burr Ridge has a population of just over 11,000. The origins of the suburb date back to 1917, when the International Harvester company purchased 414 acres for an experimental farm which tested the world's first all-purpose tractor. It wasn't until 1947 that Hinsdale Countryside Estates was established and then in 1956, its residents decided to incorporate the village of Harvester, in honor of International Harvester. In 1961, the name was changed to Burr Ridge, in lieu of the merger between International Harvester and Burr Ridge Dairy Farm.
