Here at Costume Hire London, we aim to provide so much more than Fancy
Dress. The company was started in the 1960's by Antoinette Gregory and is
now run by Antoinette's 4th incarnation, a chap called Brian
Parsonage-Kelly. Based in a lovely Grade II Listed building on the borders
of Sydenham, Forest Hill and Dulwich, Antoinette's has been providing
Costumes and Fancy Dress to South London and beyond, for 40 years.
Go into any typical Fancy Dress shop and you will probably find nothing we
stock. Almost all our clothes are unique, vintage items and we are very
proud to say they are all on hangers, not in bags!!! Secondly, we don't
sell anything. Actually, well, we do sell wigs, masks, stage make-up and
the odd accessories, as well as an occasional modern dress or two that
come to us via fashion shows, but mostly we are a hire shop.
Thirdly, if "Fancy Dress" is fancy and dressy, and not cheap and
tacky, then perhaps it would be best to describe us as a vintage
costumiers with a fancy dress heart!
