Students all across Chicagoland got the chance to take home a free prom dress as part of a clothing recycle event.

The event was held Saturday afternoon at Malcolm X College.

More than 1,500 dresses were available in all sizes and styles, most gently-used, but some brand new.

Students just needed to show their school ID.

All of the dresses were donated to help defray the costs of prom for students and parents.
