Rent Designer Wear Online : Fresh off the runway | Stage 3.co

Hi there!

It is my first post of 2017 and that too on my new website !! So before anything else, here's wishing you the best 2017 ever! I know for a fact that 2016 for most of us was a roller coaster, with the highest of highs and the lowest of lows, but I am already digging 2017 and I hope it is wonderful for you all too:* 

I absolutely love this time of the year because it is so festive and positive- there is Christmas , then we welcome in the New year, it's the Indian wedding season , then we go onto Valentines day- so much happening in such a short span of time that it's so thrilling yet sometimes crazy and stressful- and a huge part of this stress is attributed to our outfits! Which is why I decided to help you guys with this post because it is going to come in super handy.

 

Now, I get it ladies, I do, with so many festivities happening back to back and hence so many events/ functions/ gatherings to attend, we cannot repeat our outfits in front of the same circle of friends over and over.

But we also cannot afford to buy so many outfits, and specially if our tastes are purely designer. *Phew, I can hear some men and their wallets breathing a sigh of relief reading the fact that our shopaholic souls know where to stop hehe!*

This is where STAGE 3 comes in , born out of a need to not let our small closets and smaller bank accounts inhibit our fashion musts.

HOW STAGE 3 WORKS

   3.  RETURN

They'll pick it up a day after your occasion at a time convenient to you.

 

I have personally tried the platform, it is super easy and smooth to engage in. Here are a few queries / inhibitions that I had which might crop up in your head too if you haven't rented a designer wear outfit from such a platform before , and I hope I am able to clear most of them for you.

  • Price

You can rent these stunning, fresh out of the runway , premium designer pieces for 10-15 % of the price. For instance, this breath taking Ridhi Mehra jumpsuit which retails at Rs 29900 can be rented for Rs 2499 only , which is 8% of the price. 

 

  • Quality and reliability

This platform is 100% reliable so you don't have to worry about if you should choose this for your big day, because there is no risk involved. Now, a natural question that pops up is the quality of these designer clothes that are being rented at such a low price. I ordered two outfits- one from Deme by gabriella and the other was a Rohit Gandhi & Rahul Khanna number and both of them were absolutely perfect and as good as a showroom piece.

  • Booking and Delivery

The items you order will be delivered to you promptly in a span of 2-3 business days. Express delivery is available for Delhi. The platform recommends you book the outfits for your special occasion 2-3 months in prior so that they aren't out of stock when you need them. They have a calendar on their website which shows the dates for which your chosen outfit has been booked and the dates for which it is available .


I totally believe in this emerging concept of renting premium designer wear for your occasions because why buy a dress you won't wear again? I also know that sometimes we really want to don a designer outfit or an outfit worn by our favorite actress but out pockets don't allow that. But through this medium we can wear our favorite designers without shelling out a bomb!
