With a combined total of over 30 years of experience Cordeiro sisters Jessica (left) and Adrianna can now call themselves Boss!
Jessica and Adrianna both started working at Party Dress Express when they were teens in high school. Since July 2017 the Fall River natives are the owners of New England’s favorite destination for all things Special Occasion.
Jessica started working at PDE when she was 16 years old. After she graduated from high school, she started taking classes to become a dental hygienist, but former owner Donna Holland saw something else for her future. She would constantly tell Jessica she had a knack for retail and always suggested she take a couples classes in business. Jessica didn’t see herself working in retail her whole life until Holland started giving her more responsibility and made her a buyer.
With dreams of moving to New York and attending the Fashion Institute of Technology after high school, Adrianna always had a passion for fashion and knew her future would involve it. Adrianna started working at PDE at the same age her older sister Jessica did, working the prom side of the store and working as a cashier. A few years later, she began doing all design work for the store's website as well as most of the marketing. In 2014, Adrianna became the manager and buyer of the bridal end of the store. “Sometimes life doesn’t always go as planned!” Adrianna said. “But, right now I am right where I should be!”
