Rent The Runway Opens First Stand Alone Store
Last October, Rent the Runway opened their shop-in-shop inside Henri Bendel's on Fifth Avenue. The exclusive 1400-square-foot showroom was a big step for the popular online luxury closet, giving women the chance to try on the dresses before renting them. Now, Rent The Runway will open it's own store in New York's hopping Flatiron neighborhood at 16 West 18th Street on Wednesday, September 3rd.
Appointments are available online now and you can fill out your style profile prior to arriving. A personal shopper will great you with a selection of their 850 dresses - plus accessories - to fit your size, body shape and occasion for only a $25 fee to help you get the runway look of your dreams. Or you can just walk in, free of charge!
The store has also added a digital component by equipping each fitting room with an iPad Mini so that you can save your favorite styles for future rentals. And best of all, you can chose to walk out of the store with the rental that day or have it shipped for a futre date. Tailors also provide temporary hemming and strap adjustments on Thursdays and Fridays.
So what are you waiting for? Book your online appointment and set your calendar for September 3rd because Rent The Runway is going brick-and-mortar.
