One of the key trends in both the UK and the US was the growth in youth culture and this is reflected in our costume range. Music changed drastically from the crooners of the forties to the Rock and Roll era, with huge names such as Elvis Presley and Cliff Richard rising to prominence. Other subcultures arose in the fifties, including the Beatnik movement in the US and the Teddy Boy in the UK.
Alongside the music revolution, screen sirens were rising to the fore, including the icon of the fifties, Marilyn Monroe.
Our 50s costumes reflect many of the subculture movements; we have a collection of stylish Marilyn Monroe dresses taken from her legendary 'Some Like It Hot' scene, teddy boy costumes and poodle dresses galore reflecting the rockin' and rollin' 50s. These 50s fancy dress costumes are just waiting for you to have a boogie in them, just don't ruin your "do" guys.
