With the wedding season in full swing, it can be stressful to think about all the clothes you need for all those seemingly never-ending events. Not only does buying new ensembles for every occasion get costly for your wallet, it costs our planet a whole lot, too! Especially with ethnic wear, we have a tendency not to repeat unique pieces, which makes it a waste of resources for us and also has some questionable implications for the environment. This is where clothing rental services can come to the rescue. While the responsible fashion movement in other parts of the world has been slow to accept renting as truly sustainable. Renting Indian-wear can be a great option for those who want to rock designer pieces at a fraction of the cost while doing their part to be more responsible consumers. Sounds like a win, win for us! Here are six companies that you can snag some great pieces from as easy as 1-2-3!
With some of the hottest designers and leading influencers on their platform, Stage3 has been around since 2016. Most recently, Rhea Kapoor was named as Style Director and curated their current collection for the upcoming wedding season. Stage3 also has a larger vision to make clothing rental more accepted around India.
