The fabulous dress caught her attention due to the sequined patterns she has on the top, however as it was a short dress it was not appropriate for a formal party such as high school graduation.

Thanks to the ingenuity and talent of both his aunt and Castillo, they managed to turn the piece into a sensational outfit. Johnson dressed in a matching suit.


The couple's attire was so shocking that when they shared photographs of that day on their Instagram account, their friends were amazed and the couple received hundreds of comments and compliments


In the end, the story caught the attention of the general public and went viral, inspiring many people so they will not be discouraged if they do not get an outfit they like and look for creative ways to modify it and create something unique.

Johnson surely has a career in the fashion industry ahead of him and said on Instagram that he wants to pursue fashion design after school.


He is also known for his parody posts on Instagram in which he mocks celebrities' outfits by copying their styles with everyday outfits he finds around the home.
