Wickford, UK (PRWeb UK) April 15, 2011 -- Celebrity interest in hosting fancy dress parties has had a brilliant knock on effect to fancy dress retailers, especially to one in particular. All Fancy Dress, the UK’s leading online fancy dress retailer, has seen a soar in sales during the first quarter of 2011, which could be due in part to the coverage of celebrity parties.
Eva Longoria, Nick Lachey, Kim Kardashian and Heidi Klum are just a few celebrities that have enjoyed a fancy dress birthday bash recently. This month, Eva Longoria celebrated her birthday in 1920’s ‘flapper’ style, whilst Nick Lachey and fiancée were spotted attending a party in 70s and 80s costumes.
Now that celebrities across the world are embracing fancy dress, more people are choosing to host their very own fancy dress party. Sales for 1920 flapper costumes at All Fancy Dress have seen an increase in popularity. In addition, male superhero costumes are also showing a rise in demand, which could be due to the greatly anticipated release of X Men First Class in June.
If recent sales figures are anything to go by, it seems everyone wants a piece of the celebrity world and they are getting it, in part, through fancy dress costumes.
Matt Foden of All Fancy Dress commented: “It’s not surprising that more and more customers are looking to emulate celebrities, as the media coverage for celebrities is so widespread. Personally I think people are looking for a form of fun escapism, and the appeal of becoming someone different, even for just one night, is very powerful. We expect this trend to continue for the rest of 2011 and beyond.’”.
