As one of the most glamorous nights of a high school student's career, everyone remembers what they wore to prom. But Courtney Barich's dress stands out from the rest -- and it's not just because her gown resembles a (very beautiful) potato sack.

According to TODAY.com, the Surrey, British Columbia student was inspired to create her own prom dress following a shopping trip with her mother. Despite finding a special dress to wear for the big night at a store, she was put off by its $700 price tag.

"We were driving in the car and I felt kind of selfish for how much it cost,” the 18-year-old told the news site. "My mom said, ‘You would look good in anything, even a garbage bag or a potato sack.’ And the idea kind of grew from there.”

Ditching the fancy gown, Barich announced she would make her own dress out of burlap if she could raise $10,000 to support an orphanage in the Philippines, where she will be traveling to with classmates in September.

"While I would love to join my peers and dress up in a glitzy dress for grad, I feel we are so spoiled as Canadian children and the need to wear that glitzy dress is not important," wrote Barich on her fundraising site.
