COMPANY: BEG BORROW BUY
Beg Borrow Buy is a new clothes rental service that basically allows you to borrow/rent a super cool dress to wear for an event and then return it afterwards.
They have a range of high street and designer dresses to choose from, in a range of sizes for a variety of occasions. Once you have selected your dress you can rent it for 4 days or 8 days, you wear it and then return it in the prepaid envelope, they then have it cleaned ready for the next person to rent it.
I borrowed a stunning Kooples dress that i've had my eye on for a while (but couldn't afford to buy) and a super cool black and white striped dress - both of which would be perfect for weddings, parties, events, meetings etc. I was sorry to see them go back, but its fine as I can just borrow them again.
This is a really great service and idea - you get to wear an amazing dress at a fraction of the price without having to invest in something you many only wear a couple of times.
Beg Borrow Buy was founded by Natalie, who after seeing dresses she'd invested in and not worn for a while gathering dust decided there must be another way... Here is what she wants us to know about her company:
NAME OF COMPANY: Beg Borrow Buy
DATE IT WAS FOUNDED: June 2016
BY WHOM IT WAS FOUNDED: Natalie Getreu
WHY WAS IT CREATED: I found myself constantly being torn between wanting to buy beautiful and unique pieces for the events and special occasions I had coming up and trying to be economically responsible - especially living in London! More often than not I couldn’t resist the urge and the pieces I invested in, whilst I loved, were only worn once or twice and then just ended up sitting in my wardrobe, occasionally borrowed by a friend but otherwise just gathering dust. Which is how the idea of Beg Borrow Buy was born. I thought it would be great to have a virtual closet where I could wear new and special pieces for every event and party for a fraction of the price. Plus given our items are delivered straight to our customers door, and there is no dry cleaning involved, it really is an easy option for everyone!
WHAT WE NEED TO KNOW ABOUT YOUR BRAND: Beg Borrow Buy is not just tailored to the luxury and designer market. Rather our distinctive collection is a mix of vintage, designer, and contemporary high street labels from around the world. This makes our brand not only unique but an affordable and stylish option for all budgets.
WHAT WE SHOULD BORROW FROM YOU: You can’t go wrong with black, and our back to black debut collection features a number of black dresses in a variety of styles and sizes so there is something for everyone.
