Who We Are

Unique Performers. Meticulously designed costumes. Next level events.
Costumes. Performers. Events.

26 Stars was created to provide a higher yet more visceral level of entertainment, costuming, and event experience. Our flamboyant designs and ultra-high-end performers clad to embody a particular theme will place you and your guests into the picture. Why settle for an ordinary party? 26 Stars gets everyone talking. For festivals, weddings, private events, and holiday revelries, we custom-design one-of-a-kind costumes that dazzle. Founded in 2010 by Brazilian-born designer Carmela Lane, 26 Stars rapidly won the imaginations at New York City’s most renowned nightclubs with its “outrageously sexy costumes.” Also serving as Creative Director at The TAO Group, Carmela dresses dancers and attendees for A-list celebrity events. Working around the clock and drawing inspiration from sources as dissimilar as Astaire-Rogers musicals and the Jane Fonda camp classic Barbarella, she creates provocative, jaw-dropping creations that make headlines in major media. Among them: Page 6, The New York Times (the glowingly reviewed off-Broadway production of Ziegfeld’s Midnight Frolic), WPIX 11 News, People Magazine, and more. At 26 Stars, we have a team of choreographers, costume designers, makeup artists, prop masters, and versatile talents who elevate costumes and entertainment to the definitive level.
