Costumes, Dancewear & Make-up

Our Costume Warehouse is part of Doors Open Toronto 2018!

Visit our Costume Warehouse for Doors Open Toronto
Saturday May 26 & Sunday May 27, 10am-5pm

Guaranteed, you've never seen this many costumes in one building—especially not costumes that were hand-made here in Toronto! Malabar Ltd's Costume Warehouse is home to over 30,000 historical replica costumes that have been rented throughout North America for opera and theatre productions, as well as occasionally for film and television. The collection features historical period costumes including Medieval, Elizabethan, Baroque, Victorian and Edwardian styles, all manufactured by our Toronto workroom since our company's start in 1923.

Come and see the costumes, learn about the differences between designing costumes for stage versus film and compare original costume design sketches to their finished products. Malabar staff, who have various backgrounds in costuming, make-up art and theatre, will be on-site to answer questions.
