Do you love Netflix and the cheap price they offer you to rent a movie? Well, the same idea behind Netflix has taken over the fashion industry. All the credit can be given to Jennifer Hyman and Jenny Fleiss.
These two ladies met at Harvard Business School and thought of this amazing idea for just a school project. However, this idea has now become a reality. Rent the Runway is a website that has changed the way women shop. In its huge success, Rent the Runway has been named one of Fast Company’s “10 Most Innovative Fashion Companies of the Year.”
Rent the Runway provides the perfect shopping option for the woman who wants to wear red carpet looks without spending their entire paycheck. If you have ever said, “I have a closet full of clothes and nothing to wear,” then this website is meant just for you.
The merchandise on Rent the Runway is offered to customers at just 10% of the product’s total retail price. Rentals are available for 4 to 8 days. They deliver overnight so that it is ready for that one special occasion. The process is easy. You can simply just login, pick a dress, and lastly pick an arrival date.
Are you worried about the dress not fitting? Rent the Runway has you covered with shipping you an additional size. Also, you may opt for a backup style for only $25 more.
The easy to navigate website includes products from over 100 top designers. Some of the hot designers for summer include: Diane von Furstenurg, Trina Turk, D&G, Missoni, Alice & Olivia, and Proenza Schouler.
