Manhattan Wardrobe Supply (MWS) is a purveyor of hair, makeup, and wardrobe care products for film, theater, and TV professionals. To better serve their New York City customers, they were expanding their store in Chelsea – but online, things weren’t so rosy.

While it may not have the glamour of a Broadway musical, our work has resulted in significant improvements to the structure and function of the MWS site, and sets the stage for future growth.
