Rent The Runway's History
A New York-based company, Rent The Runway was founded in 2009 by Jennifer Fleiss alongside a Harvard Business School classmate but before starting this haute couture rental online shop, she was the director of Business Development at IMG. Her other remarkable working experiences are her employments with WeddingChannel.com, Starwood Hotels, Wall Street Journal, and Fashionista.com. Led by a woman powered by both experience and passion for fashion, the company is being manned and run by 287 highly creative and bright employees. Rent The Runway is the answer to all clothing needs for all types of occasions. It is the quickest route to having the most fashionable wear whenever and whatever the occasion is. For regular consumers, buying new top-brand clothing can be pretty heavy on the pocket but thanks to this one-stop shop that’s made as an answer to all clothing needs.
Rent The Runway's Values
At Rent The Runway, the renters’ overall satisfaction is a must. The lady customers are guaranteed the best fit. They can take advantage of the “free backup size” or a second style option for a very low cost. What’s more to like is that customers are given an opportunity of swapping their rented dress in case they don’t fit perfectly. This only shows how the company values every woman’s desire and need for achieving the best look at parties and other once-in-a-lifetime occasions. The company’s warehouse is located in Secaucus, New Jersey and it has outlets in Chicago, Washington DC, New York City Soho and Flatiron as well as in Las Vegas.
What makes Rent The Runway unique?
Rent The Runway believes that getting the perfect dress for special occasions can be stressful and expensive that’s why it exists. The customers need not buy dress and spend lots of money for something that they’d only wear once or twice. Rent the Runway offers an exciting opportunity of extending one’s private clothing allowing women an all-out access to wide range of fashionable and luxurious apparel from over 250 world class designers. Buying a dress doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re getting a satisfying experience but with Rent the Runway, you can get access to loads of designer dresses for a price that’s relatively low compared to really buying an item. With Rent The Runway, customers get an unlimited access to a plethora of designer dresses and other sorts of clothes from tops, bottoms, jumpsuits, and accessories, for all types of formal or casual events. All you need to do is find a clothing of choice by color, style, size, and then reserve the item. The company offers a rental period of either 4 or 8 days and it provides a subscription to countless accessories to accentuate one’s chosen style.
