Costume Hire is Africa’s largest supplier of clothing to the film, commercials and photographic industries. Based in Cape Town, they offer a broad range of clothing options to stylists, whether period piece or contemporary. The company started in 2004 when a group of stylists and designers collaborated to combine their stock into a single rental facility. From these humble beginnings in a church hall, the company has expanded significantly and now holds over 120 000 individual items, including the stock of 45 designers in their Salt River warehouse. Co-founder Wolfgang Ender has costume designed over 50 films for the international market. He now offers his expertise in-house at Costume Hire.
