Grand celebrations and fancy events are all fun and games but before the big day comes, it usually takes ages trying to find the perfect dress. (Ain't nobody got time for that!) Most of the time, you end up going back to brands you already know and you spend more than your initial budget to save you the effort. Totally not worth it for something you're probably only going to wear once.
Because this is such a common struggle, Kimberly Pomperada started Brands 4 Lease, an online service that lets people rent gowns and dresses at affordable price points. "Our shop basically provides online borrowing services of branded gowns and dresses. This is to prevent over spending for one-time use garments and allow them to borrow for special events, weddings, and prenups," she shares.
Brands 4 Lease carries pieces from local and international brands like BCBG, H&M, Forever 21, Zoo, River Island, Apartment 8, Style Staple, and more. They even have dresses by local designer Emil Ocampo. Depending on the dress you want to borrow, rental fees range from P200 to P899.
Check some items they have here:
To rent, simply browse their catalog on Instagram, book the dress online via private message, and return the dress on schedule. Kimberly says "We pick up the garment from their given address and shoulder the return fee as well. Dry cleaning and minor repairs are shouldered by us also."
