    Universal Production Services Costume Dept. Now Open in New York

    New York, New York, July 8, 2019 - Universal Studios Operations Group announced the opening of the Universal Production Services Costume Department in New York (universalproductionservices.com).  The newly renovated facility in Long Island City provides costume rental services for features, television, streaming, independents, theatre and commercials in New York and across the East Coast.

    The costume rental space has been customized for New York-based costume professionals with enclosed loading docks and parking.  The inventory includes assets from the 1950s to the present, police, SWAT, and FBI uniforms, hospital wardrobes and much more.  With a comfortable client lounge, well organized racks, and spacious fitting rooms, Universal Production Services NY has been tailored to its customers.

    "New York's thriving film and television production is adding jobs and businesses, including the new Universal Studios costume department, and creating economic growth throughout the state," said Empire State Development President, CEO and Commissioner Howard Zemsky.

    "We're excited to offer Universal's high level of customer service and a handpicked asset collection to the New York market," said Poppy Cannon-Reese, Director, Universal Studios Costume.  "We're also enhancing the rental experience for our customers with standardized pricing and a 2-day approval period." 

    Universal Studios Costume updates their inventory regularly with new assets acquired from features and television, offering services to costumers and designers in all areas of production.  A wide-ranging collection of items, including armor and specialty costumes, is also available for shipment from the Universal City warehouse in Los Angeles.  In addition, Universal Studios Costume offers their Digital Design Workroom.  Garments can be created in an online 3D environment using talent measurements, fabric type and color, and overall fit.  The software simulates draping, accounting for fabric weight and texture.  The 360 design files can be emailed for remote approval and are then converted into a pattern that can be printed on-site.

    Universal Production Services New York is located at 38-20 Review Avenue, Long Island City.  For costume rentals, call 626.762.5888 or email nyuniversal.costume@nbcuni.com
