From 800-square-feet to over 5,000, The Red Carpet boutique opened the doors to its new three-story store, at 344 Millburn Ave., as a one stop shop for women going to formal events in the heart of downtown Millburn.
"Whether it's daytime or evening, we can dress you head to toe" one of the owners, Gina Colabelli, said.
The sister owned company decided to expand after requests from its customers to order dresses for more events such as bar mitzvahs and weddings.
"We just completely outgrew our space," Roxanne Corvelli, who graduated from Parsons, said.
Now the store has two floors of dress and jewelry, a large shoe selection, a dressing room for the bride and her bridal party on the third floor.
Not only that, but the store offers a professional hair and make-up artist, The Beauty Artist, Gillian Moritz, on site. Moritz will even make house calls to prepare for formal functions.
"What we are doing here is what we were always striving to do," Colabelli, a Fashion Institute of Technology graduate, said.
The sister's leased the new store from on the corner of Millburn and Main Avenue in January and the renovations started in February. The original store was located at 359 Millburn Ave., where it opened over six years ago.
