Oscar fever grips London costume suppliers Angels


The owners of a family business in London will join Hollywood's finest in dreaming of Oscar success later this month.

Angels in Hendon is the longest-established fancy dress and professional costume hire company in Britain.

It has provided clothes and accessories for four of the five films nominated in the Best Costume category, including W.E., Madonna's directorial debut, and Martin Scorsese's Hugo.

All the stock is cleaned regularly but the biggest problem is moths, says creative director Jeremy Angel.
