I’m going to a wedding this weekend. I’ll wear the same black Bonobos suit that I wear to every wedding. All I have to think about is what tie to wear. I’d never even consider buying a new outfit for a wedding other than my own or one I’m in. But it’s not an uncommon thing for a lot of women to wear a different dress to every wedding they go to. That can get expensive, unless you choose to Rent The Runway. Rent The Runway is a New York, NY based “community designed to fill the needs of women who know and love high fashion, who want to look glamorous for all their nights out, and experiment with new brands without the anxiety of investing in piece after piece.” (Use this link to try it for $20 off.) The company was started by two women (Jenn and Jenny) who met at Harvard Business School, and it’s taken off since as the “Netflix for fashion.”

Rent Seeking

You probably know somebody who has left a price tag on a piece of clothing, worn it, and then returned it. Whether you think that’s tacky or crafty, it’s really not worth the trouble when a company like Rent The Runway exists. They make wearing something once completely reasonable. Membership is free, and it gives you access “to rent 25,000 dresses + accessories by 160 different designers at 90% off retail.” They ship same day in NYC and next day everywhere else in the U.S. And to make sure the dress fits, they send you a backup size for free. When you’re done with the dress, you use a prepaid label to return–they’ll take care of the dry cleaning. It’s stupid simple. They even have stylists to help you find the perfect outfit. It sounds like an amazing service and an amazing business. If you’d like to be part of it, take a look at Rent The Runway’s Internships page. Right now they’re seeking Fall Interns in College Marketing/Marketing, Customer Insights, Public Relations, Design, Product, Business Development and Fashion. Additionally they have a 2012-2013 College Runway Rep Program that includes the following positions: Manager, Marketing Rep, Social Media Rep, PR Rep, Greek Liaison, Event Coordinator, and Blogger. As far as I can tell, everything is unpaid.
