The TDF Costume Collection provides professionally designed costumes at affordable prices. The reasonable prices not only allow fledgling companies to mount more professional-looking shows; they also help theatres to produce a greater number of new works by keeping production costs down.
Performing arts organizations, colleges and universities, middle and high schools, and community and charitable groups are among those primarily eligible to take advantage of all the TDF Costume Collection has to offer.
If you are not in the New York area or are unable to visit the Collection, for an additional fee you can use the Pulling Service. If available, costumes will be chosen for you by the Collection's expert design team based on the information you provide.
