Hero Wardrobe is an entertainment industry costume rental house house owned by one of New York’s top Stylists and Costume Designers, Melissa DesRosiers (NY Local 829 & Costume Designers Guild local 892) . Melissa has over 20 years of commercial, film, print and television costume design experience in New York, Los Angeles and numerous cities between. In 2009 she combined her knowledge of costumes and design with her business savvy in an ever-changing industry to form Hero Wardrobe Rentals.
Hero Wardrobe is a handpicked collection of garments and costumes that has been in the making for almost 15 years. Melissa started buying, collecting, and “rescuing” vintage and unique items throughout her travels and during shopping sprees around the city. Because Hero Wardrobe is a costume shop FOR designers, RUN by a designer, Hero's staff knows the trials and tribulations of shrinking budgets, non existent prep time, and the difficulties finding a director’s last minute whimsical request hours before shooting. We know your pain, we know the thrill of the search, and we know what you need!
We aspire to be your one-stop shopping destination for all of your wardrobe and costume needs.
We work with film, commercials, TV, live events, theatre, photo and print.
