A West Midland company which dresses brides from all over the UK will soon be showing its designs on the catwalks of Paris.
Seranetta, based in Stourbridge, was established six years ago by Sarah Jordan and designer Aneta Lawton.
Since 2003, the company has been undergoing a UK expansion and has now turned its attention abroad.
"We originally started with just one shop, but started to realise the potential for supplying the dresses we made to other retailers across the country," said director Sarah Jordan.
The company now employs six people - three of which create the dresses at the company's Market Street site.
Ms Jordan said the time was now right to start looking at trading overseas.
"We noticed the there were increasing numbers of exhibitors from abroad," she said. "We realised that if they could come to us, we could go to them."
Although Seranetta plans to break into the export market in Paris next year, the company has received interest from Ireland and also hopes to exhibit in Dublin.
Seranetta, which became limited last year, received support for its expansion from Business Link Black Country.
"Seranetta came to us at a crucial time in their development, looking to expand both their market and manufacturing operations. We were able to sit down with them and identify what they wanted to achieve and then implement a package of support tailored to their requirements," said BLBC business advisor Catherine Bray.
"The Paris show will be another fantastic milestone for them."
The company also hopes to open another West Midland outlet this year.
