Contemporary womenswear indie The Dressing Room has had a successful year, taking home not one but two trophies at the Drapers Fashion Awards in 2011. It didn’t stop there though; the retailer recorded its best-ever financial year with a 5% rise in sales.
Owner Deryane Tadd remains intent on keeping the store’s proposition fresh and interesting. Not only did Tadd and her team scour trade shows such as Gallery in Copenhagen and Scoop in London last year to discover new brands, they also revamped the store and redesigned the website.
The Dressing Room “offers unparalleled customer service and infinite attention to detail”, enthuses one voter.
