In today’s world, fashion moves faster than ever and trends can come and go in a day, which is why we always feel the need to consistently update our wardrobe and be ahead of the clothing curve. But we all know shopping isn’t cheap and having a personal stylist readily available is becoming a rarity. That is why we have become completely obsessed with Rent the Runway.
Rent the Runway is a rental revolution that has changed the fashion industry for good — in the best way possible. What started as a small circle to share clothes — co-founded by Jenn Hyman and Jenny Fleiss while studying at Harvard Business School in 2008 — has become a large “Closet in the Cloud” and community of likeminded women to swap styles, inspiration and ideas.
This forward-thinking fashion retailer allows you to shop from over 750 designers to rent, wear and return their collections for a fraction of the cost on a one-time occasion or a continual basis with their subscription service — keeping you ahead of the trends all year-round. And the best part? If you fallen madly in love with your designer deals, you can purchase them to keep forever!
The initial idea for the company came from Hyman herself, when her fashionable younger sister bought an expensive designer dress, only to wear once for a wedding! And we all know that struggle of putting our wardrobes before our wallet.
At that moment, the concept for Rent the Runway was born — a high-end designer shop where retail-lovers can rent and return their favorite fashions for an affordable price, instead of purchasing them for a fortune. Fast forward to today, Rent the Runway has expanded from focusing on formal event-wear to having all categories of high-end clothing, jewelry and even handbags.
From Altuzarra all the way to ZAC Zac Posen, there is no designer off limits at Rent the Runway. Choose between one-time rentals and must-have memberships — or even checkout right now to buy those styles you’ve been saving up for, now offered pre-owned for the perfect price. Hurry to their site and start picking your preferred plan to get new, trend-forward and affordable designer fashions delivered straight to your doorstep.
