Our Story

Established in 1984, Court Jester Fancy Dress first opened in Werribee. A few years on, Court Jester relocated to Altona Meadows and operated there for several years. With demands in the industry and outgrowing its location, it moved to a bigger premise, in Harrington Square, Altona.

In 2006, Court Jester merged with a well-known local Newport Fancy Dress store, giving us a tremendous extended wardrobe, allowing our business to cater for the majority of the western and inner suburbs.

Court Jester won the 2011 Hobson’s Bay Business award in the Retail Category which was a major acheivement.

In 2012 the previous owner relocated to a bigger and better premise on Fitzgerald Road.

The new store has enabled Court Jester to offer the largest retail range of costumes and accessories in Melbourne.

In November 2019, Court Jester Fancy Dress was sold to the daughter of the original owner of Court Jester back in 1998 and relocated to Factory 20 Jimmy Place (Dohertys Road), Laverton North. Only 5 mins from the Fitzgerald Road Location. 

We also have a sister store located in Point Cook enabling us to service  and assist the whole of Melbournes Western suburbs!
