Morphsuits, Corporate Banking at Barclays

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.

Ali Smeaton, Director, Morphsuits

With markets changing quickly, and a seasonality to the product, there are cash-flow challenges that Barclays has helped Morphsuits to navigate.

Having supported Morphsuits from day one, Barclays has watched the rapid growth and evolution of the business, including their desire to trade internationally.
