Are you one of those people who own a zillion clothes, yet each time they open their cupboard, their first reaction is “God, I’ve nothing to wear”. Yes, that makes up almost every one of us.
After bargaining and grabbing a bag full of clothes Janpath, Lajpath or Sarojni, whenever a special occasion comes up, we’re short of ‘good clothes’ and end up only gazing at the latest collection from Ritu Kumar, Manish Malhotra, Sabyasachi etc (sigh).
Or, are you one of those boys who never like to spend thousands of bucks buying clothes from fashion brands because, blaah.. why waste so much money when you can survive on five pairs of clothes all your life! (much swag)
So, for all you guys and girls who’ve been in these similar situations, here’s for you the latest concept of RENTING !
A concept perfect for those who’ve the desire to not repeat an outfit. It’s as simple as this — All you have to do is rent a garment (pay rentals for as long as you have it with you) and return it once your purpose of wearing it is solved. In case you really like the rented attire, some of these services even allow you to buy the piece at a nominal cost. While some of these services have a virtual store to rent from, there are a few that have actual retail outlets.
Here’s a list of emerging rental wardrobe services for Delhiites:
