Alyce Mode Paris prom, debs dresses at Fashion Angel Dublin and Drogheda. Designer with big experience in fashion industry. The story of Alice Marie-Thérèse Hamm’s aspiration to dress the modern-day Cinderella begins in war-torn eastern France in 1942. Inspired by the intense enthusiasm surrounding Christian Dior’s revolutionary New Look (1947), Alice realized that she really needed to become a dressmaker in Paris. Alice enjoyed her new life in the United States, and became a citizen in 1961. At that time, she changed the spelling of her name to “Alyce” (pronounced “AH-lease”). Then in 1981, true to her gutsy aspirations, Alyce decided to expand her horizons beyond pageant and bridal and produce hand beaded prom gowns. Et voilà! Alyce’s iconic talents and block patterns spawned a worldwide industry built around prom. Alyce's brother, Jean-Paul Hamm, and her nieces, Claudine Hamm and Nathalie Lambert, still continue to influence modern formal wear through their world-renowned work at ALYCE Paris.
