Answered Prayers: It’s Like Netflix for Fashion!
Okay… so we might be a touch tardy to the party… but it seems our prayers were answered several months ago with the launch of the haute couture rental website RentTheRunway.com. We’re feeling, in a word: LOVE.
RentTheRunway.com is a site where you sign up for a free membership and then have access to rent haute couture collections like Prabal Gurung, Vera Wang, Diane Von Furstenberg, Alberta Ferretti, Nina Ricci and more for 90% off the retail price. They even recently paired up with a NYC vintage fashion house to rent out coveted vintage Chanel jewelry and designs!
Here’s how it works:
You sign up for your free membership and put the date of your next occasion (like a party, a wedding… just a day at the office). Then you peruse RTR’s illustrious collection of dresses and accessories and select your pick! Voila! Your dress arrives priority just in time for your event, you wear it, look fabulous and then ship it back. No worries about your dress not fitting because RTR sends you a second size for free and guarantees that, if neither fits they’ll ship you a second dress in time for the event… no matter what!
The fashion wish-granters at RTR also provide expert stylists that you can speak to about what looks will best fit your body type or what to wear to your event, and the latest and greatest in fashion and trend news on their blog. These gals do it all!
