Based in LANCASTER, PA we are a full service costume shop — from show design, to costume construction, to rentals. We enjoy working with schools, regional theaters, and professionals to bring the director's vision to life.

Contact us while you are in the planning stages of your next production. We love to bounce ideas back and forth with directors and producers about meeting your artistic goals and financial constraints. We design, build, and pull to produce a complete costume set for your production.

Designer Janell Berté always wanted to design costumes. After graduating cum-laude from Drexel University's fashion design program, she set off to California for a job working at Disneyland Tokyo. As fate would have it, she got a job working on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills instead. From there, she went on to become a nationally known bridal gown designer. We invite you to visit her bridal gown website at www.berte.com

Eventually, Janell was inspired by the creativity and heartbeat of the theater world, and began to apply her extensive bridal and fashion knowledge to developing impeccable costumes for both stage and screen.

Looking4Costumes strives daily to produce reliable and jaw-dropping designs that thrill audiences.
