Antoinette says ....

Welcome to Antoinette Costume Hire,  a wonderful treasure trove of fancy dress costumes in Sydenham. 

You enter a magical world. There are so many costumes to see; hats, feather boas, shoes, everything is a feast for the eyes.


The shops theatrical atmosphere is largely down to owner Brian Parsonage Kelly's life long career in show business and originated with founder Antoinette Gregorys glamorous fashion design connections from the shops inception some 40 years ago. 

Fabulous costumes are abound. Brian takes enormous pride in fitting you out in a truly stunning costume from top-to-toe. The motto of Antoinette's is very much dress up and not down. Here we believe style still counts. This is a unique and not a run-of-the-mill costume and fancy dress experience.

A fitting involves going through your ideas and discussing the style of costume that is most appropriate, suitable and of course stylish.

In theory at Antoinette's you can be dressed from A to Z, as Marie Antoinette herself indeed, through to a cool dude in a zoot suit. Brian's expert knowledge of will always ensure that when you are dressed for your wedding in 1820, you don't look 1780s.

The costumes are sourced from a variety of backgrounds. Donations from grannies wardrobe, theatre and film cast off's, antique market treasures, and some are even home made. Customers regularly win prizes for their Antoinette costumes.

Requests come from every section of society, from the local school 'dress up' day to the guests at Princes Beatrice's 18th birthday at Windsor Castle in 2006.

Antoinette's regularly provides costumes for film, TV and theatre companies. Check the credits at your next show or after the Saturday night movie, you'd be surprised where Antoinette Costume Hire pops up.
