As most of my readers will know I am always proud to mention that I am Alumni of University of The Arts, specifically the renowned London College of Fashion.
I’m happy to feature today a fellow alumni of UAL. Anna Bance who founded one of the most fantastic websites I have come across in a long time- ‘Girl Meets Dress’
Girl Meets Dress was the Drapers 2010 Winner for- Best Etail Innovation, and praised by:
The Guardian- “One of the hottest internet retailers”
Vogue- “The answer to your prayers”
Daily Candy- “These mice are really on the ball”
And now for Five Five Fabulous- “Where do we sign up?”
Girl Meets Dress makes wearing designer pieces affordable, as they do the spending for you… buying pieces directly from top designers, then offering you rentals at just 10% of retail prices.
It works like this:
“Simply peruse our collection of over 100 designer brands and 300 designer dresses (Marc Jacobs, Temperley, Chloe) and add up to 3 of your favourite dresses into your Shopping Bag to try on.
Select the number of nights you would like them for (2 or 7 nights) and for a little extra peace of mind, add our optional insurance for just £7.
Schedule a delivery date, and your dress will appear at the doorstep of your choice – home or office. Next-day and even same-day delivery (if you live in London) is available, for last-minute fashion emergency. You can pre-order your dress or bag well ahead of your big night if you wish and we’ll send it to you in advance to try on so you have complete peace of mind and your outfit sorted!
Let us know which one you have chosen so we can refund you the difference and then enjoy wearing it and bask in the compliments and admiring glances you will get.
Once you are done, just pop your dress back into the pre-paid packaging and drop it into your local Post office.
We even take care of the dry cleaning, then keep the dresses humming in their wonderful wardrobes, in anticipation of the next outing.
There is no registration or monthly fees – neither are necessary, although if you do plan on using us, you can benefit from one of our 2 membership options, including our ‘Unlimited Membership’ which is £900 for the whole year of free dress rental.”
