Renting Dresses or Buy Designer Dresses : Sample Sale

What is better then being able to rent dresses?  Being able to buy designer dresses at sale prices may actually be better.
Rent the Runway, a leading online destination for dress and accessories rentals, has announced its first ever sale of dress and accessory merchandise that have been retired from rental inventory.  Over 100 styles will be available for purchase from top designers including Matthew Williamson, Proenza Schouler, Lela Rose, Catherine Malandrino, Halston Heritage, Helmut Lang and Badgley Mischka, among others, for up to 65% off retail.  In addition to dresses, accessories will be available for purchase from top jewelry designers Janis Savitt, Dannijo, Kara Ross and many more.

"For the woman who never wants to part with her dress or accessory rental, this is her opportunity to make it part of her permanent collection," stated Jennifer Hyman, CEO and Co-founder of Rent the Runway.  Added Jenny Fleiss, fellow co-founder and President, "We've been asked since the company's inception what we plan to do with our dresses once they're no longer part of our rental lineup.  With the semi-annual sample sale, we will make room for all the new styles coming in throughout 2011 while offering RTR members an exclusive offer."

The gently worn dresses being sold will be marked online as like new, missing sequins/beads, fabric fading, picked/pulled and/or missing a belt so online consumers are aware of each dress' condition.   Rent the Runway stylists can also be consulted for dress and accessory specifics by calling Rent the Runway's customer service team at 1.800.509.0842.

WHO’S NEXT and PREMIERE CLASSE January 2015

The date is set. The next edition of the WHO’S NEXT and PREMIERE CLASSE trade shows, will take place from Friday 22nd to Monday 25th January 2016 at Porte de Versailles.  In the midst of its extensive renovation work, the Paris Expo - Porte de Versailles is keeping its doors open for events. This ambitious modernisation project aims to strengthen the role that Paris holds as tourism market leader with regards to international business.  The first phase of the renovation concerns halls 1 and 7, the main entrance and the central walkway with the creation of travelators between hall 3 and 4.   In line with this situation, WHO’S NEXT and PREMIERE CLASSE are having to evolve and transform. The areas are being rethought, reworked, to offer a more fluid experience, a clearer display of the trade shows’ offer.  By joining forces with Studio GGSV (Curator of the Saint-Etienne Design Biennial 2013) the trade shows guarantee a quality setting and optimal space layout. The plan is se

Too Many Fashion Blogs

Is it possible that the world currently has too many fashion blogs? Obviously I understand that fashion is the most interesting subject matter in the universe, but why does everyone wish to blog about it. Although I have not yet completed an official count, I estimate approximately six zillion may be in existence. Here are a few reasons that may possibly contribute to the over population of style relevant blogs: Fashion blogs can make bloggers money (advertising, affiliate programs, etc). Fashion blogging is a creative process. Fashionistas are creative people; it makes sense that they enjoy writing. Fashion bloggers are tired of reading opinions from other people and wish to express their own opinion. Although it is embarrassing to admit, I contribute to several but do NOT derive much of an income for my efforts (yes, this is maybe because I do not write well…). Therefore, I do not think financial gain is the primary reason that the world has to

Fashion Goes in Cycles

They say that fashion goes in cycles.  What is in fashion this year will be out of fashion next year. However, clothing that may have been in style ten years ago, can potentially be next season smashing trend.  Due to the the cyclical nature of the apparel industry it is important for designers as well as consumers to monitor past styles as well as currently trending designs.  One way to do this would be to occasionally view old fashion articles in magazines, newspapers, websites, and obviously on blogs such as this one.
