Pat Hall (Designer)
Pat Hall has created costumes for many students over the past 30 years! Dance has been a major part of Pat’s life for 70 years. Starting dance at the age of 5: Performing Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Character, Pointe, and East Indian dancing for 14 years and moving on to owning Pat Hall’s Dance Unlimited for 25 years. She sold her studios and has been teaching Ballet for Miss Donna’s School of Dance for 18 years.
Designing has always been a part of teaching dance and when the studios were sold her business grew. Solos, duos, trios, small groups and large groups were produced and not repeated. Her customers, prior students, that purchased costumes have been coming back for pageant, prom, and ballroom looks for their students. Miss North Carolina and Miss Teen North Carolina and many other local winners as well as other states of pageants have all come to Pat for a talent costume.
Since 2010, Pat has been a part of the Glamour Costumes family as a designer for their catalogue. The costumes are designed to be unique but affordable for all studios and performance companies across the country!
Friendships have been a large part of the business due to learning their tastes for colors and styles. Pat feels that her customers trust her to do that special costume. Judging for many years for top competition companies broadened her knowledge of styles across the country. She has been named the “Rhinestone Queen!"
