You’ve booked your portrait session, and you’re so pumped. You’re ready to rock it and be your most fabulous self. You receive a copy of my pre-shoot checklist and start prepping. Then you hit the closet and can’t find anything you love. What are you going to wear?
You saw a gown you love, but it’s way out of your price range. If a shopping spree is out of the question, please allow me to introduce you to Rent the Runway! This innovative company allows you to borrow fabulous designer clothes and accessories at a fraction of the purchase cost, saving both cash and closet space. So yes, as a matter of fact, you can slip into that Vera Wang. And you’ll look incredible in it.
There is so much variety. Seriously. I can’t even tell you. They have everything. Except for shoes- sorry ladies. Lucky for me, I don’t often photograph feet! I love that you can browse by formality, trend, body shape and more. Rent the Runway even offers previews of both slim and curvy body types. This is so helpful during the Styling Consultation when clients and I plan and design their Luxury Portrait Session. With these previews, we’re able to get a great idea of how things fit so that you feel comfortable, beautiful and empowered.
Rent the Runway offers both Pay as You Rent or Subscription options to serve a variety of needs. I’ve borrowed everything from sophisticated suits to gorgeous ball gowns. The best part? If you love it, you can buy it!
