The Dressing Room boutique is jointly owned and managed by Carole Cooper and Keren Lawton, both fashion designers and dressmakers, who have between them more than 30 years experience in the fashion industry.
Until 2009, Carole and Keren both worked in different fashion markets, when they met they collaborated on a couple of projects before deciding to work together. Later that year The Dressing Room was born and Carole & Keren started producing their their own line of clothing.
The first home for The Dressing Room was a small workroom. They outgrew the workroom and moved into a small shop on Wigan Lane. They soon needed even more space and then moved to their current premises in Wigan town centre, close to both railway stations, the bus station and car parks.
One thing that hasn't changed is that everything is designed and made on the premises, which means you have a one stop shop for your made to measure clothes.
At the store there is a selection of ready made prom dresses, gowns and races fashion. When visiting the store, the team of designers can create a dress to your own requirements, made to measure. They have a large range of fabrics and trims to choose from and will advise on style and colour to suit your body shape.
The Dressing room has now expanded and opened a new boutique bridal room, featuring their own range of wedding dresses, bridesmaids dresses, flower girls and bridal accessories.
The Dressing Room has become an established favourite with girls from all over the UK, some of them travelling a long way to get the personal service that is the speciality of The Dressing Room. Make every occasion a special occasion, visit The Dressing Room.

Massive Thanks to Carole & Keren for creating my perfect flower girl & bridesmaid dresses, you bought my dreams to reality. Everyone commented on how gorgeous they all looked and also thanks for fixing my wedding dress last minute! Both amazing at what you do! xxxxx - Jayne Nicola Wood
The two wonderful ladies made me feel like a million dollars, on my daughter's wedding day. How they knew what I wanted from my description, I have no idea, but they did. Gave excellent advice, and the dress was finished to perfection. Would highly recommend to anyone who wants something unique and perfect. - Alison Robinson
