Sometimes, if were lucky, dads make proms better. Like Dan Casagrande who bought out a garden tool to make sure his daughter got the perfect pictures for her prom.
And while most of us trawl the high street shops trying to find that one banging outfit, high schooler Penda Gueye had no problems in that department.
The teenagers dad, Abdoulaye Gueye, is an experienced tailor who regularly makes stunning dresses for Penda and his other daughter Rama.
Pendas metallic lilac dress was a hit with her friends and went viral on Facebook for its gorgeous detail.
The teenagers fierce matching look wowed users on social media who couldnt get enough of her dads work.
And because hes so nice, Abdoulaye, from New York, U.S, even helped Pendas friends out by designing their dresses too.
Penda told Metro.co.uk how her attire went down a treat on the big night.
Everyone loved it and is looking forward to going to him for their prom or next events, she explained.
I really enjoyed wearing it and I didnt have any problems with it, its actually so stretchy and comfortable. Hes currently designing my graduation outfit.
For graduation, Penda says she has asked her dad to make her a white jumpsuit.
And it doesnt take long for him to get it done, she added. You just have to tell him a date you need it to be and he will have it ready for you.
He also calls in for the customers to come in a fit in so that he knows youre satisfied with the making.
Though she is delighted to have a fashion designer at her beck and call, she thinks her dad favours sister Rama more.
Rama gets more clothes made from dad than me.
