Girl Meets Dress Interview

Have you ever wanted to wear the perfect dress for that special occasion but didn’t want to pay designer prices? Well at Girl Meets Dress you can hire an amazing dress from one of the top fashion designers. Anna Bance, the founder of Girl Meets Dress was kind enough to answer these questions:

1. What makes your site stand-out from your competitors?

Girl Meets Dress is the leading designer dress rental destination, offering access to your dream wardrobe for all of life’s special occasions: a Ball, a Birthday party, a Romantic Date . We currently offer over 2,000 dresses from 150 of the world’s top designer brands for up to a 10th of the retail value.

We will deliver the dress to you – and all you have to do is have fun in it and send it back to us when you’re done. It’s like we’re your new best friend with the massive designer wardrobe who is cool enough to let you borrow whatever you want!

We have just launched GMD ‘The Club’ and for a monthly fee of £39 customers can receive any dress, every month. Members have the option to skip their month’s dress during quiet periods throughout the year.

2. Is hiring designer dresses getting more popular?

Our customers have a love for high-end fashion and have turned GMD into a guiltless addiction!

Hiring a dress allows women to very easily wear more trend led, time-sensitive fashions, while continuing to invest only in those classic pieces which will stand the test of time.

Celebrities have always been borrowing dresses for special events, and now that everyone is a mini-celebrity in their own world, which has a lot to do with the proliferation of social media, including Facebook, there is an increasing social pressure. We wanted to offer all women access to this concept – providing an easy and fun solution to not repeat outfits!

3. Could you give some tips to women who have never hired a designer dress before?

Hiring a dress from GMD is very simple!

BROWSE. Simply peruse our collection of over 150 designer brands (Halston Heritage, Herve Leger, Marc Jacobs…) and add up to 3 of your favourite dresses into your Shopping Bag to try on.

ORDER. Select the number of nights you would like them for (2 or 7 nights) and for a little extra peace of mind, add our optional insurance for just £7.

Schedule a delivery date, and your dress will appear at the doorstep of your choice – home or office. You can pre-order your dress or bag well ahead of your big night if you wish and we’ll send it to you in advance to try on so you have complete peace of mind and your outfit sorted!

PARTY. A Ball, a Wedding a Romantic date – whatever the event, enjoy wearing it and bask in the compliments and admiring glances you will get!

RETURN. Once you are done, just pop your dress back into the pre-paid packaging and drop it into your local Post office.

4. Which do you think is your stand-out dress of your current collection?

So many of our dresses become favourites and we launch new arrivals every week – so it is impossible to pick just one!!

To make it simple to find the perfect dress, no matter what your event is, we have launched event categories. Favourites for this summer include: The Races, Wedding Guest, and Long Gowns.
