A BRIEF HISTORY…
FROM FANCY FRESHER LTD TO FANCY DRESS WORLDWIDE…
Between August & September of 2012-2014, Fancy Fresher offered a fancy dress package for students moving to university. Dom Portman founded the company after attending Nottingham Trent University soon realising the increasing popularity for fancy dress themed parties during freshers’ week. Students were likely to pay over the odds for fancy dress costumes and accessories from High Street stores.
In March 2016, the Fancy Fresher pack had been selling seasonally for 3 years and the team at Fancy Fresher had expanded to 5 full time staff and 60 student reps. We won the prestigious ‘West Midlands Start Up of The Year 2014’, an award presented by Dragons Dens’ James Caan in the Mayor of London Boris Johnson’s office.
In HQ, the team had been working on a new and exciting arm to the business, expanding our product range to 4,000 costumes including children’s sizes, affordable accessory kits and premium licensed Marvel & DC costumes. Our logistics team made it possible to offer our products worldwide and in offering our award winning service to the public, a new brand was born. Fancy Dress Worldwide has been trading under Fancy Fresher LTD since March 2016.
Fast-forward to 2018, with a team of 32 staff members, including both office and warehouse. All contributing to the increasing growth of 300,000 customers yearly in over 60 countries. We now stock a considerable 8,000 products which is growing daily with the potential to increase to 14,000 in March 2018.
The extensive growth of our company has allowed us to have now constructed our own website which we are continuing to develop as our business rapidly expands. As well as this, we are selling on the following popular platforms:
