We buy all our dresses brand new directly from the designer or brand. We buy our dresses from Poland, Australia, New York, Los Angeles, Montreal etc.
Renting is a more sustainable option than constanty buyng and discarding merchandise. Its an easier way to diversify your wardrobe and try new looks without fully commiting to them.
The fashion industry is constantly evolving and looks always changing, its hard to keep on top of the trend on a financial stand point, with the rental industry you dont have to worry about it and let someone else worry about supplying the latest trendy styles for you.
