The passion and skill for the business from both Tadd and her staff is overwhelming and has inspired many others within the sector. Punching well above its weight in national magazine and newspaper coverage, the business has managed market-leading growth at a time when others struggle and is a shining star within its sector. The judges were unanimous in voting The Dressing Room into first place, and saw the business as a great example of how indies can lead the way.’
