This year I am the Co-Manager of Rent the Runway Rep Team on Spelman College's Campus.
What is Rent the Runway?
In 2009 a company called Rent the
Runway was launched. This company lets any woman rent high end designer
dresses, and accessories for a 4 or 8 day period from renttherunway.com. Rent the Runway includes over 165 high end fashion name brands that anyone can rent for a fraction of the retail price. They
have 200+ college rep teams on campuses around the country under their Campus Girl
branch of the company. For the first time, Spelman has a Rent the Runway Team.
They have been called the Netflix of Fashion and have been mentioned in major publications such as Cosmopolitan, The New York Times, Forbes Magazine, Style.com, CNN, WWD, Teen Vogue, Seventeen, The Today Show, Bloomberg and the Wall Street Journal just to name a few! Over 3 million women have signed up for access.
It’s for women who want to look glamorous without breaking the bank. RTR has created and maintained exclusive relationships with top designers, and therefore are able to continually update inventory with the latest designer pieces. It’s amazing that the ancient complaint of: 'I don’t have anything to wear’ started this company.
1. FIND IT: Search our collection of dresses and accessories for your rental date (we recommend 1–2 days before your event), then filter by designer, price, length — even style — to narrow down your favorites.
2. BOOK IT: Once you've selected your items, book for a 4-day or 8-day rental period. We also offer all the essential extras like Spanx and Fashion Tape.
3. WEAR IT: Your order will arrive by 8PM on your delivery date via UPS (or by courier in NYC). Time to slip it on and shine!
4: RETURN IT: After your night out, send back your items in the easy pre-paid envelope provided — we'll take care of the dry cleaning. Don't forget to upload a photo and review to Our Runway.
On the website they also sell essentials, such as any Spanx, body tape, or underwear that is especially needed for certain dresses. They also sell and rent accessories to complete your look.
RTR now has plus sizes!!!
They have the Beyonce boutique, which has looks hand picked by Queen Bey herself

What We Do On Campus:
My fashion team will be doing numerous things on campus to get Spelman more acquainted with the rental experience. It’s really a vehicle for Fashionistas to have access to their dream closet within her college friendly budget. Being on the rep team on campus is an amazing fashion internship, that provides industry intel and experience.
We are an extension of the company itself on campus.
We hold fashion shows and trunk shows with RTR dresses
We hand out free prizes to girls on campus from L'Oreal Paris
We help girls sign up for access on campus
and much more!
We can be really creative with events we want to hold. For instance on October 18th we will be having a HAIR BATTLE ROYALE (more info soon) that will feature Spelman hairstylist with their models wearing RTR dresses competing for RTR prizes and give aways.
