Would you pay for access to a dream wardrobe, even if you knew you had to give it all back? Some women would, that’s for sure. The US has seen a huge rise in the popularity of designer rental – websites that lend designer duds to people for a fraction of the retail price. There’s Rent the Runway, which lets shoppers surf through hundreds of designer dresses and accessories, allowing people to borrow items via mail for either four or eight days. And Bag, Borrow, or Steal, another popular site, lets members rent luxury handbags on a rotating basis, with the option to purchase a particular handbag if they can’t bear to send it back.
And now in New Zealand the option to wear your favourite designer label at your next event is now more accessible than ever thanks to a refreshed and carefully considered range of garments for hire from Annah Stretton.
The Hire Me concept has been running steadily for two years with great success and as the 2013/2014 wedding season draws near the Hire Me range from Annah Stretton has been injected with a new selection of Annah’s best-selling styles.
“We understand the cost may be a deterrent for many,” Annah explains. “How many times have you spent a fortune on a frock to only wear once? Hire Me by Annah Stretton is the perfect answer. It is a realistic option for those that have budgets constraints, or simply want to reduce the investment they have in their intended event. This is the perfect frocking solution for any special occasion.”
The garments available in the Hire Me range have been kept to a carefully selected range and quantity so women can be assured they won’t turn up to an event wearing the same garment as someone else. Garments are divided into bridal, cocktail and extra lovely styles (for sizes up to 18) and prices range start at just $60 for 7 days hireage.
Weddings, balls, reunions, birthdays, anniversaries – no matter the occasion, Hire Me has you covered.
Read what our customers have said about Hire Me:
“I was looking at your on-line store today and saw the bridal section available for hire. What a fantastic idea. I am so excited that such amazing, bespoke gowns are available for such great prices. I have been looking for the perfect wedding dress and I will be hiring the Lottie Dress for my upcoming summer wedding.”
“I am a happy size 16 and have always looked at the Roxanne Dress on your website wishing I could afford it. I was so excited when my girlfriend told me you now hire out your dresses. I am planning on hiring the Roxanne for my upcoming 50th birthday and if I love it enough I might even convince my husband to make it my birthday present.”
