Established in 1985, The Dressing Up Shop has been providing Aldershot, Farnham, Farnborough, Fleet, Camberley and the surrounding areas with fancy dress fun for 31 years!
Owner, Manager and all-round creative genius Shirlee Gibbs began her career as a window dresser by trade, with years of seamstress experience also under her belt ( started in school! ), she embarked on a fulfilling journey combining the two art forms. From making costumes at home for friends and family, she then entered the exciting world of running her own independent business.
Based in the High Street for over 20 years the shop has since been on the move, first to the Arcade before development changes opened up an exciting oppurtunity in Wellington Street, one of the town's pedestranised shopping venues.
We are lucky to call Edgar Jeromes', one of Aldershots longest running businesses ( 90 years and counting ) our next door neighbours, along with other varied retailers.
We pride ourselves on our one to one personal service, from the moment you walk in your needs are our first priority. After all, visiting us is the first step to party shenanigans!
