@jesiyvonne,
Hmmm... I'm not sure that sort of collar would have a name. It's sort of like an attached shawl (but not a shawl collar).

If it has a name, I can't think of it anyway.

Can you ask your friend?

@jesiyvonne,
That type collar would be called a capelet (or a capelet collar).

It is not a prairie dress and the style is much more formal and contemporary.

That collar is called a Bertha collar. http://www.google.com/images?client=safari&rls=en&q=BErtha+Collar&oe=UTF-8&um=1&ie=UTF-8&source=univ&ei=BBYgTImNCoH-8AasqJRX&sa=X&oi=image_result_group&ct=title&resnum=1&ved=0CC4QsAQwAA
