Monday night in Georgetown should have included a runway because it gave me flashbacks to the AMAs the night before!!  Rent the Runway has arrived and it is 4,354-square-foot of fabulous!  Located in store in Washington DC’s historic Georgetown district, I was delighted to learn that this is their largest retail location to date and second freestanding store.  I also found out that it will feature a rotating selection of 900 dresses and 500 accessories from over 200 major designers, including Monique Lhuillier, Elizabeth & James, Clover Canyon and Badgley Mischka.  I have always been a fan of Rent the Runway in concept but I have not used it as often as I should because fear of my unique shape made me doubt that I could  order online without trying it on.  Well fear no more, there is a store!!

The store very spacious but cozy with the feel of shopping a friends closet.  For a $25 fee, customers can book an appointment online and create their style profile.  When they get to the store, they will be paired with a personal stylist to provide a styling consultation as they try on dresses and accessories for a complete head-to-toe looks for an upcoming event or even an entire season of events.  Fitting rooms will be equipped with iPad minis that have scan-to-screen capabilities for stylists to upload each dress tried on and add comments for future reference. Walk-in appointments are also welcome.  Customers will be able to reserve rentals for future events or take dresses and accessories with them directly from the store.  You also no longer have to wait for everything in the mail!  DC area customers who place an order online will have the option to pick up their rentals in store and try them on upon arrival.   If something does not fit, you can exchange your rentals!!  You have the option to mail it back provided pre-paid mailing envelope or simply bring it back to the store to return it!  Have a group event coming up?  Rent the Runway will offer exclusive packages in-store for private events and weddings. Private event packages will allow you to rent the space for a two-hour or full-day with personal styling services.
