I have not been to Lausanne in a long time, but I would guess that there must be many shops selling fancy dresses (in fact, fancy everything!) on and around the Rue de Bourg.

Re: Fancy Dress....where??

Sadly the Rue du Bourg is not what it was. The high-end shops have moved out, usually because of rent increases, and have been replaced by representatives of various chains. The inexorable standardisation and banalisation of our town centres continues.

That, alas, is a worldwide trend

Where have the former Rue de Bourg shops moved to?

Re: Fancy Dress....where?? [Lausanne]

I think, what the OP means by "fancy dress" is costumes, not evening wear.

Here's on in the flon:

I also heard a rumor that the Geneva Opera rents it's costumes... I've always wanted to rent one of those big huge gowns. Sadly, I've just never had anywhere to wear one.
