It Started with a Beer

When three Edinburgh University graduates meet for a drink, none were likely to know that the resulting business would be a global hit

Gregor Lawson, 36, and the Smeaton brothers Fraser, 36, and Ali, 34, went on to create fancy dress and party fashion company Morphsuits, since changed to MorphCostumes.

The company sells top-to-toe spandex bodysuits seen at many a stag do or other places where the younger set congregate with partying in mind.

The idea was a huge hit with sales exceeding 1.5 million on the first year. The initial business plan was to sell 20,0000 suits but to date that figure has reached 2.5 million.

Please give me whatever feedback comes to mind via tamfromrampant@gmail.com.
