Former Topshop boss heralds ‘enormous’ trend of women renting designer outfits from retailers to save cash and cut waste

  • Former Topshop boss Jane Shepherdson is director of London Fashion Fund
  • A weekly rental price is typically a tenth of the price of a new designer outfit
  • Main focus is women in 50s and 60s looking for outfits for weddings and work
  • Miss Shepherdson started renting when invited to event at Buckingham Palace

Shopping for the perfect outfit is so last year, according to a former retail boss who says more women than ever are renting clothes for big occasions.

Companies offering expensive designer items for a fraction of the cost of buying them have sprung up to cater for those who want to save cash and cut waste.

Jane Shepherdson, a former Topshop and Whistles boss who is now a director of London Fashion Fund, which helps new firms get off the ground, said: ‘It’s an enormous trend. Rental has to be the answer, as it allows you to really enjoy fashion without wearing it once and throwing it away. It hasn’t broken through to the mainstream yet, but people are accepting it as something that’s a possibility.’

When bought new, the items range in value from a couple of hundred pounds to thousands for designer dresses by high-end brands such as Victoria Beckham, but a week’s rental is typically a tenth of the price.

Women in their 50s and 60s looking for outfits to wear at weddings, parties and work are said to form a significant proportion of the market, while others just don’t want to add to the piles of clothes cluttering up their wardrobe.

Miss Shepherdson revealed she started renting clothes when she was invited to an event at Buckingham Palace. She said: ‘I could either wear something I already had, spend £1,000 on something new or I could rent. It was an obvious thing to do.’

The rental firms claim their process is similar to buying and returning clothes when shopping online. Some also offer insurance for damage, such as drink stains.

Mika Simmons, an actress who has appeared in a number of ITV and Channel 4 dramas, is a renting convert after trying the service for a red carpet event. ‘I’d rather rent than wear a dress that I’m only going to wear once and which harms the environment,’ said the 44-year-old, who hosts the Happy Vagina podcast about women’s health.

The UK’s fashion rental companies are hoping to mirror the success of US firm Rent The Runway, which has millions of users.

Anna Bance, founder of one of the UK’s biggest rental firms, Girl Meets Dress, said: ‘When we launched in 2009 during the recession it was about saving money. Now a key reason our customers rent is sustainability.’

While it stocks many designers, it also features high street favourites such as Phase Eight. Items start at £19 but stretch to £119 for a £995 Amanda Wakeley gown or £149 for a £1,100 Stella McCartney dress.

Other firms cater for women looking for a taste of red-carpet luxury. Newcomer My Wardrobe HQ offers a £5,000 Alexander McQueen dress for £500 and a £2,500 Tom Ford dress for £177. Founder Sacha Newell said: ‘We offer statement pieces that women are unlikely to wear more than once.’

First Rent The Runway and Girl Meets Dress in 2009. Now…

We have been reading an article online by goodmorningamerica.com about 7 clothing rental services to keep the US female shopper’s wardrobe in constant rotation.

You can read the whole feature here >

Rent The Runway has led the charge in the US when it comes to borrowing your wardrobe through a subscription service. Launching at the same time as Girl Meets Dress in the UK – 2009. Now, multiple companies, as well as major retailers, are following suit, making fashion more accessible.

In September, major retailer Bloomingdale’s launched a monthly subscription rental service called My List.

This new service gives members access to more than 60 of the major retailer’s brands.

The new launch for Bloomingdale’s makes it one of the first-ever subscription rental services from an upscale department store. Members get access to over 60 brands along with over 100 exclusive pieces.

Also, at the end of July, a new company called Nuuly which is owned by URBN (the parent company of Urban Outfitters, Anthropologie and Free People) launched, and it now carries over 100 cool brands from labels many of us are familiar with.

There have also been popular stores such as Loft and New York and Company that have adopted the idea of giving customers the option to rent their favorite looks.

In the era of fast fashion, as brands churn out an ever-changing array of clothing, many consumers find it nice to lean on subscription services that allow them flexibility in how, and for how long, to acquire clothing.


New fashion rental platforms

 

There are articles daily now about new fashion rental platforms in the US. New customers trying Nuuly and getting $938 worth of clothes from Urban Outfitters, Anthropologie, and Free People for a huge saving.
Avid shoppers of URBN brands including Urban Outfitters, Anthropologie, and Free People are excited to try the company’s new clothing rental subscription service. The retailer is launching an online subscription  allowing people to borrow six items to wear for a month before swapping them.

In terms of clothing, millennials in particular want variety and sustainability. Young people are turning their backs on throwaway dresses. At Girl Meets Dress the clothing subscription is £99 / month for unlimited dress hires in the UK. So if you want a one night stand with fashion, rent a dress from our London rental showroom in Fulham SW6. Book an appointment and try on dress hire options with our team.

Of course the returned garments are dry cleaned and inspected before they are loaned out again.

Online clothing rental is set to grow to $2.5bn by 2023, according to research firm GlobalData.
