What is Rent the Runway?
Need a fabulous formal dress that you will only wear once? Check out Rent the Runway. I love this concept for a prom, wedding, or special occasion. I read an article about Rent the Runway in Yahoo Finance today.
There are so many choices at many different price points. You can wear a dress that would cost hundreds of dollars for $50.
How many of us have formal dresses hanging in our closets? Donate those old dresses and start fresh and rent your next dress!
Rent the Runway, promises to give “every woman the opportunity to be Cinderella for the night,” says co-founder Jennifer Hyman. Customers can choose from an array of designer duds for one-time wear at a fraction of the frocks’ retail price tag. (A little black dress worth $1,250, for instance, rents for $150, plus shipping and $5 insurance.) Returns are as simple as dropping the Dolce & Gabbana or Diane von Furstenberg dress into a pre-paid mailing envelope.
