About Us

Look The Part has been in operation for 25 years.

(formerly Costume Hire Taradale )

Kate purchased the business 14 years ago & since then concentrated on upgrading & modernising the stock. Lynda visited the store in January 2020 and realised her dream to own a costume shop could come true, as Kate was ready to sell. Then Covid-19 forced a change of plans and delayed Lyndas return to New Zealand. Lyndas dream finally became a reality on October 1st 2020. Lynda is an avid sewer and has already added alterations to the mix.
