Any ideas of where to buy my daughter's prom dress?

My 16 yo daughter has her Yr 11 prom at the end of June. She is fussy grin and understandably doesn't want to get a dress from your run of the mill high street places such as Coast, Monsoon, Debenhams etc as inevitably that is where many of the other girls in her year at school will go to get theirs.
She has up to £200(ish) to spend and wants something ideally dusky pink or nude. She wants to keep away from navy, black, white and red if possible and would like something backless (I think she may be asking too much here smile).
Nothing sparkly either!!

Can anyone point us in the right direction? We've made enquiries about having a dress made but the dressmakers are fully booked!!

Asos do such nice formal wear now and you could get it tailored to a perfect fit.

DD2 got hers from here www.dylanqueen.uk.com
I was very sceptical as it was £300 down to £75. When we took it to a local dressmaker for alterations they positively cooed over the quality and said it was one of the best made gowns they has ever worked with and a very expensive garment. Sizing was accurate I had been worried that the dress would be tiny proportions.
