UNITED TO ADVOCATE FOR THE SURVIVAL OF THE NEW YORK CITY CUSTOM COSTUME INDUSTRY
In May of 2020 amidst the COVID-19 pandemic New York City's custom costume industry came together to form the Costume Industry Coalition.
Our immediate goal is to act as a united front to ensure our future as a vital part of the entertainment industry not just in New York City but around the world.

We are over 50 small, unique, independent businesses and artisans--in and around New York City--that create and supply costumes for the entertainment industry. Standing alongside us are costuming colleagues from major NYC arts institutions.
WHAT WE DO
We employ hundreds of specialty artisans and infuse millions of dollars into the New York City economy (rent, payroll, taxes and other expenses) and support and support the $110 Billion NYC entertainment industry. Learn more
