In a fast paced fashion scene, it can be financially difficult to spend time and money on designer pieces that are often only worn once or twice. However, with the help of online rental retailers, it is possible to hire designer pieces for special occasions ranging from a day at the races, wedding, formal, dinner, the many fashion weeks or any other social/formal event. The prices can range from as little as 10-20% of the retail price, which is similar to hiring up to ten dresses for the price of one.

The online designer rental websites below support Australia Fashion Designers, as well as International Fashion Designers. The way that it works is similar for all the websites. You simply go online and choose the designer dress that you prefer, ensuring that it is still available. Once you have rented it and booked it online, it will be sent to you to wear for a certain period of days. After the event, you return the clothing in the returns bag to the company where they will sort out the dry cleaning for you.



GlamCorner is a Sydney based online destination for renting designer dresses. They have designers ranging from Alex Perry, Ellery, Lover, Camilla, Nicola Finetti, and Aurelio Costarella to name a few. Since its inception in 2012, it has grown remarkably, with a mindset to dress the stylish but financially savvy women. For various events from day time to night, they will provide a range of styles for the special occasion. They offer a free try on of up to 3 dresses for only $30 as well as a complimentary $100 accidental damage insurance with every dress that is rented.
