Ever dream of wearing couture designers pieces, dressing up like only Hollywood stars can afford to, and then banished the thought from your mind as the likelihood of that happening is as good as non existent?
Well two college graduate girlfriends want to make such dreams possible. They are hoping to make high-end fashion much more accessible and almost as easy as renting a movie.
Rent the Runway is a new way to get couture pieces for a fraction of the cost. You can rent runway outfits for $50 to $200 for a four-night period. They get shipped directly to your doorstep. After wearing the dress, you can put it into a prepaid envelope and drop it in the mail. Dry cleaning is included in the price, but damage insurance costs $5, and in the case of destruction of the dress, the renter has to pay the full retail price.
The clothes are up to size 10, so that is a bit limiting for the customers, but hey, it is still more then was available just a little while ago, and there is no telling how large this business will become, especially having the economic conditions in view.
So visit http://www.renttherunway.com/ browse through the designers and find your high-end dress ASAP.
