A Keilor East bridesmaids dress business is continuing its winning ways.

Bridesmaids Dressing Room has taken home the gong for Best Bridesmaid Gown Business at the Australian Bridal Industry Awards for the sixth consecutive year.

The business achieved an overall score of 99.69 per cent for its products, quality, customer service and overall experience.

At the same time, the business was accorded hall of fame status for its ongoing success.

Bridesmaids Dressing Room director Aneta Pazeski said this was a huge honour.

“It’s great recognition of all the years collectively, of not only winning awards, but the effort and courage that it takes to run a business,” she said.

“To be inducted, a business within the membership base of the Australian Bridal Industry Australia needs to win a minimum of five awards whilst they’re a member of the academy.

“Since 1996, only 40-plus business owners have been inducted into the hall of fame, so it’s quite hard to achieve.”

It’s been a big year for Ms Pazeski, who has moved her business from her home to a shop in McFarlane Street, Keilor East.

“We co-share the space with a wedding photographer and that drums up business collaboration,” Ms Pazeski said. “It’s triple the size of what we previously had.”

While happy with her progress, Ms Pazeski hopes to expand online her offerings to cater for regional and remote areas.
