My girlfriends back home in the US are constantly mentioning online fashion rental sites that they can use to rent a dress or outfit on an event by event basis. While there’s been a few UK attempts I have never found a company that could deliver couture at a reasonable rental price in a seamless and convenient way.
Enter Oprent. The new online luxury rental destination that just may change your life. Oprent focuses on producing an expertly curated lineup of the most show-stopping and trendiest pieces from estabilished luxury and emerging designers. Designed for the modern women who wants constant access to luxury statement pieces, Oprent emulates a shopping-like experience without you having to pay the full price or think “Will I wear this again?”.
Ascot? Upcoming wedding? Serpentine Summer Party? All of these summer events call for a special ensemble, and who wants to buy a new one when you can rent one for a fraction of the price? I’ve also found that with social media it’s really difficult to wear things over and over again- especially if you’re going to post photos in them, so if you want something to show-off for one night only, Oprent is for you!
I went online and signed up to Oprent, narrowed the dresses by my size and found this gorgeous Dolce & Gabbana number which worked perfectly for an interior photoshoot I had coming up. I rented it online and it arrived at my door the evening before in a beautiful garmet bag. I tried on the dress and it fit like a glove, however if you do have problems you can simply send it back for no charge. The dress worked perfectly for the photoshoot and the courier came the very next day to pick the dress up. I didn’t have to spend a fortune and the entire process couldn’t have been more convenient. The customer service at Oprent is also excellent and they were able to answer all my questions and ensure the dress was delivered and then picked up at a convenient time.
You’re able to rent dresses, bags, and accessories for either 5 or 10 days and Oprent will do temporary alterations or send a back-up dress if you’re concerned about the fit.
