Don't want to spend thousands for a couture gown but still want to wear it? No worries! Thanks to two enterprising Harvard women, you now only pay around $50 or more to Rent the Runway and then return it in their own package! LOVE THIS IDEA!!!
"The mail-order service, which finishes the testing phase on Monday, allows women to rent dresses from notable fashion designers like Diane Von Furstenberg, Hervé Léger and Proenza Schouler for roughly one-tenth of what they would cost to buy in a retail store.
The rentals run $50 to $200 for a four-night loan and are shipped directly to the customer’s doorstep. After wearing the dress, she puts it into a prepaid envelope and drops it in the mail. Dry cleaning is included in the price, but damage insurance costs $5, and in the case of outright destruction of the dress, the renter is responsible for the full retail price."
