Dressed for success

We meet Ali Smeaton, Director of Morphsuits to find out how his business idea came about and how Barclays is supporting his ambition.

Morphsuits is a fancy dress business based in Scotland, where the sole aim is to create costumes that make people feel the life and the soul of the party.

Founded in 2009 as a result of post university gatherings with a fancy dress theme, Ali was increasingly dissatisfied with the quality of costumes available.

Our Relationship Director understands our business, our vision. I respect his knowledge of our sector, and of relevant other sectors. He’s a great support.
