The store features a rotating selection of dresses from more than 200 designers like Opening Ceremony, Vera Wang and Marchesa. Wedding parties can also rent out the shop for the day.

The Rent the Runway storefront has made the experience with this company better by a tenfold. There is an option to schedule an appointment with a stylist, which comes at a cost, but is definitely worth it if renting in advance. I had rented a gown recently for a black tie wedding I was attending and when I went to pick it up, I was not thrilled with the fit. Even though I did not have an appointment, I was able to see a stylist who was super attentive and assisted me by bringing over essentially their entire gown inventory. The storefront is very inviting and feels high end and clean. Definitely prefer this to the online experience! 


Rent the Runway has changed my life. I no longer worry about finding and buying a dress for any special occasion. I simply book an appointment several weeks in advance or as little as a couple days and the team has always been able to find me something fabulous to wear. They are great at listening to your needs as well as likes and dislikes. Another great option they offer is the Unlimited plan which I also subscribe to, allowing you to have an endless wardrobe of curated items from top designers. It's a great supplement for those trendy pieces that you want to wear in the season but not really commit to purchasing. This is a necessity for any city girl.
