Happy New Year!

Welcome to the first news update of 2015. We hope that the year is going well for you, although, like us, you probably can't believe that it's February already! We wish you a very happy and healthy 2015.

Valentine's Couples
We share Ralph Waldo Emerson's belief that 'All the world loves a lover' (or two), and of course February means Valentine's Day. Why not lighten the dark days by holding a Valentine's party and inviting guests to come as well-known lovers? (Think Antony and Cleo, Lara and Zhivago, Victoria and Albert, Napoleon and Josephine, Henry VIII and ... well, maybe not.)
Literature – and life – is full of couples, happy - or otherwise – in love. We've lots of ideas and plenty of wonderful costumes to make your Valentine's party extra special, so book early for your appointment.

'Les Miserables' in Orkney
We've been really excited over the past few weeks as we've been putting together one of our biggest orders to date, for a production of 'Les Miserables' by Kirkwall Amateur Operatic Society on Orkney. We have costumed the entire production, providing over 45 outfits, quite a feat from a distance of over 500 miles! We wish the cast good luck in their production and look forward to working with them again.

Do you know about our Special Service?
It's worth reminding readers that we now offer a service whereby we can prepare larger orders for groups if you send us accurate measurements and details of the production and characters. Simply contact us and download measurements forms from our web pages, complete them, send them to us, and we'll do the rest.

Many amateur and professional dramatic companies, plus schools and colleges, are finding this service an invaluable way of providing costumes with a minimum of time and stress – please contact us if you want to know more.
