We know that when given the option, a designer dress would be any woman’s weapon of choice on an all-important night out. Nothing quite beats the confidence boosting quality and fit of a designer gown, yet the extortionate price tags leaves many of us incapable of making our wardrobe wishes come true!
That’s where Wish Want Wear step in, with their fabulously stylish solution to women’s wardrobe conundrums. We caught up with Shelley Belle from the company to find out more about the benefits of hiring a designer dress compared to buying it outright.
How exactly does Wish Want Wear work?
Wish Want Wear is a designer dress hire company that gives women the opportunity to borrow a dress for their special occasions and once the celebration is over, return the dress, guilt free.
Can you give us an idea of the cost of hiring Vs buying?
Wish Want Wear gives women the chance to wear a touch of Temperley for a hire period of 4 or 8 days, with costs starting at around 10% of the retail price. We regularly have reduced lines starting at just £29, which makes designer style accessible at high street costs.
How extensive is the range of dresses available for hire?
Wish Want Wear’s Hire It | Love it | Return it ethos means that you’ll never have to wear the same dress twice, with over 300 styles to choose from. These are all from some of the world’s best-known designers, such as Herve Leger, Just Cavalli & M Missoni.
