Aisles and aisles of clothing, walls and walls of fabric, closets and crates of odds and ends. This is DePaul’s hidden treasure – the Costume Shop.
Inside the Theatre School on the Lincoln Park campus, the Costume Shop, a place that is almost a secret to most students, is an excellent find.
Walking into the Costume Shop you will find many students, student workers and faculty at work mastering and practicing their craft of sewing and making clothes for the school’s theater productions.
Everything that is in the Costume Shop has either been thrifted, made or bought and remade by the people who have spent time there. The collection of clothing has built up over the years and has become an excellent closet and source for clothing from all decades.
