Profile

In 1943, Pierre�s Uniforms Inc., a uniform manufacturer servicing the medical and restaurant professions, emerged into professional costuming trading as �Costumes by Pierre.� In 1961, Pierre purchased the tremendous inventory of �Miller Costumier� of Philadelphia, which had been active since 1876. With this acquisition, Pierre became one of the world�s foremost costumers. Over the past 25 years, Pierre�s has acquired costumes and stock from over 20 other large high-end costume shops who were retiring. (This allowed Pierre�s to add unique and original items to the stock while still building new costumes as well.) During the last five decades Pierre�s has maintained a complete full service professional costume house, designing and manufacturing on the premises. Pierre�s services professional and semi-professional theatrical productions, national theater tours, school & college theaters, motion pictures, advertising agencies, party planners, production companies, professional sports teams, print & TV commercials, major corporations, televised parades, theme parks, and costume shops throughout the world. In 1993 Pierre�s moved from Walnut street in Philadelphia to a new, larger, modern location 5 minutes away from downtown Philadelphia just across the Ben Franklin Bridge in Pennsauken, NJ. In September 2000, Pierre�s returned to Philadelphia (in the Historic Olde City section) just in time for the busy Halloween season. The move was spurred on by a need for an even larger location. The opportunity to design and create a brand new state-of-the-art costume studio, and to fill the void created by the demise of the old theatrical costume shops. In 2005, Irvin Stern�s Costumes (since 1900) closed their doors. This long-established company had been run by another family member. After the owner�s death, Pierre�s obtained many specialized costumes, and took over servicing those customers. Pierre�s has well over 1,000,000 different costumes to chose from, making it by far the largest costume shop in the Philadelphia area / Delaware Valley, and one of the largest in the country. We are proud to ensure the continuation of one of the country�s oldest costumers. We allow the public and theatrical organizations the opportunity to rent from a wide range of top quality, in-house manufactured costumes or original historic garments. Pierre�s Costumes also carries a full line of Halloween outfits, professional make-up, wigs and accessories. Pierre�s makes custom designed costumes for Television Personalities, Movies, Musicians, Performers, and many others. Pierre�s continues it�s long history of creating and designing original mascots for corporations, sports teams, theme parks, colleges, schools, parades and more. Pierre�s Costumes continues with our tradition of providing the highest quality costumes, while expanding the services offered, and building new inventory. Pierre�s hires some of the brightest and best costumers in the country. This allows us to create items that others can only dream of.
