It is always such a pleasure to come across new players working on the designer-wear rental model with a good looking website, a really good inventory of styles and outfits and even better service. One such website I discovered recently is DateMyCloset.com and decided to try out it’s services.
From a first look, the DMC website is a simple and neatly organized one with an easy to understand user-interface which I think even my parents would manage to navigate through. Yay! The ensembles have been shot on real humans rather than dress-forms or mannequins which is extremely important because with designer-wear it is always so pleasing to see how beautifully a garment may fall on a body. The shots are good quality, accurate and detail shots of outfits are also provided.
Once you have selected your outfit of your liking, you can choose how long you’d like to rent it for – 3, 5, 8 days or even longer. The Divya Reddy ensemble that I am wearing here retails at ₹ 60,000/- and can be rented at ₹ 6,000/- which is pretty insane because at a value of 60k, I can wear 10 different outfits for different occasions and I wouldn’t have to bother about wardrobe space and dry-cleaning since DMC dry-cleans each and every outfit after they are returned from a rental period. Each outfit is also customized according to your size. Home visits can be scheduled for the stylists to take your measurements which is such a convenient feature in my books.
Another feature that I love about their service is home trials. The outfits of your choice is brought straight to your home for you to try out and have total confidence in the fit.
My DMC outfit came neatly packed on hangers so I did not have to bother with any ironing or steaming. And even when somebody from DMC came to collect it back, they neatly packed it themselves and left. Simple, easy and hassle free. Hope you enjoy my outfit!
