ATLANTIC CITY - The Miss America Pageant is back home in Atlantic City, and with it comes designers of some very glitz-and-glam outfits.

News 12 New Jersey's Carissa Lawson spoke with Mac Duggal, one of the pageant's most desired designers.

"It's great to support the community in its recovery," Duggal says of being in Atlantic City.

High-necked collars, sequins and bedazzling will all be on the agenda for this year's pageant.
