Experience Dress Designer Judith Penak Couture invites you to feel wowed, inspired and stunning and her boutique store in Melbourne. Specialising in custom designs and expert bridal gown alterations, together you will create your unique, made to order dream wedding gown, all is created with care and artistry for every bride.

Judith Penak, creator of Black Rose Couture in Australia in 1991, arrived from her home country of Czech Republic. Over the years Judith has been in Australia, she has developed her skills focusing on bridal, formal & race-wear, strongly specialising in dresses from the 1950's era.

Judith prides herself on providing a highly personalised service, which is customer-centric and a detail-orientated approach to dress-making.

The passion and dedication Judith has invested in her craft has built her strong reputation in the bridal market, as being accessible to brides with any budget.

As we come from many different backgrounds and have unique circumstances, I believe that each bride is entitled to the gown of her dreams and I will work with you to bring your dream dress to life.


Gowns are like a unique, individual one-off piece of art, they awaken our fantasies of being surrounded by beauty, happiness. They motivate us to open up the depths of our souls and express our inner beauty, allowing our physical beauty to shine.

The direction fashion is moving into is very exciting, the discovering of new trends and combinations allows all women to have complete freedom of choice in what they want their inner beauty to portray in their physical appearance.

Judith was so lovely to work with and really made my vision for my wedding dress come to life. She really listened to what I wanted, gave suggestions when I was unsure of something and happily made some adjustments I requested as we went along. I had been really anxious about the process of having a dress designed and made for me but it was truely beautiful. Thank you Judith!

Everything went very well. She made all effort to try to understand exactly what I wanted. We spent as much as time as I needed to get it perfect. The result was great and exactly what I wanted.

Hello Meiling, thank you very much for this great review, it was a pleasure to work with you !

After our first meeting I cancelled my other appointments, as I knew Judith was the right person for the job. The appointments were really enjoyable, & funny! It is strange and exciting creating your own wedding dress, and Judith's personality, knowledge and experience made my experience more enjoyable. Thank you!

Judith is very detailed and experience dress maker. I returned to her many times after collecting the dress and she patiently assisted me with alterations and add-ons. I believe she truly understood what I wanted and I'm very happy with what she made.

Alterations to my Collette Dinnigan Gown. She was experienced and did a great job.

My dress was bought from Rafaelle Cuica. The dress was stunning and the service was great. My alterations were done by Judith Penak Couture and she was absolutely helpful and ensured that my dress was personlised to me. I would highly recommend her services. Her bespoke dresses also looked amazing when I visited her boutique. She also helped make my bridesmaid dresses look incredible and added that little bit of creativity and elegance that the dress was lacking.

Judith made my vision a a reality. She went above and beyond and she was exceptional with managing my budget and offering solutions. She made me feel at ease and I've already referred several friends to her!

Judith was my saviour when I finally found her! She created the most beautiful dress imaginable and it fit me to perfection. She was patient and so easy to deal with throughout the whole process. My whole bridal party couldnt stop complimenting me on the design and how 'me' it was!

I sketched my dress and the lady made it exactly how I wanted it. I would not fault her.

Bit of a hit and miss. At first she was happy to do whatever I wanted but when it came to picking the fabric she didn't want to use the fabric I asked for. I wasn't happy with the final result. She charged me an alteration fee even though it was made to fit. It looked great on the day but it just didn't sit completely right.

Judith helped me out of a real bind when I needed alterations to my wedding dress two weeks before my wedding day. Judith understood what I needed doing, and did it in the required time frame. Im very grateful to her for taking the stress out of a very stressful moment!

So, so talented! She understood straight away what I wanted and was so thorough in helping me attain it!
