An endless closet at your fingertips
Founded in 2018, I created Our Closet to bring my love of rental fashion in Australia to the UK.
In Australia I was renting out my own extensive closet as a way to make some extra money on the side, a bunch of my friends started asking to rent out their pieces as well.
I decided to create a platform where they could lend out their own pieces in a safe and secure way while still being able to wear them themselves whenever they wanted.
Our Closet is a way for women to make some money back from their purchases. Pieces rent for roughly 20% of the purchase price, rent them out 5 times, you’ve made your money back. Rent them 6, you’re making money!!
Our Closet gives women the chance to rent a gorgeous designer piece for a fraction of the retail price, because let’s be honest, once we have that one perfect pic in a killer outfit for Insta, we can’t wear it again!
I wanted to make the process as safe as possible, so every borrower must provide photo ID, we offer insurance and our payment gateway allows us to automatically charge the borrowers card late fees, damage fees or god forbid, non return fees.
At the end of the day, I want us all to cut down on the fast fashion we’re buying then throwing away which is going straight to landfill. I want women, before they buy a new outfit, to think:
- will I wear this again?
- would someone else want to wear this?
- for this price, could I rent something from my favourite luxury designer instead?
I hope you love renting as as much as I do.
