Wear designer dresses for a fraction of the cost

I’m sure you’ve found yourself in a similar situation – you have to attend an event, you need to look great but you don’t have the time (or energy) for a time consuming shopping spree to find the perfect dress. Yes? Then I’ve got just the solution for you.

I recently discovered Our Wardrobe, an online shop where you can borrow (or buy if you prefer) designer dresses for any occasion. All you have to do is browse, choose your dress and Our Wardrobe will have it delivered to you. The ladies behind Our Wardrobe, Tabatha King and Catherine Moore, will launch their full online store later this month. They have a number of local and international designer brands in their wardrobe, and here are some of my favourite dresses so far.

Local designers include Gavin Rajah, Stefania Morland, Gabi Rosenwerth, Jenny Le Roux, Catherine Moore, Jacques LaGrange, Paul van Zyl, Robyn Roberts, Hip Hop, Cindy Bam and Cheryl Arthur for Afro Diva. International labels include Galliano, Robert Cavalli, Michael Kors, Dolce & Gabbana, Betsey Johnson and Diane von Furstenberg.

To get your hands on one of Our Wardrobe’s designer dresses, visit their website and sign up for their newsletter. You can request more information on their membership options, but in short you can borrow or buy garments for an annual membership fee of R300.00. Also keep an eye on www.ourwardrobe.co.za for the launch of their full online store. 🙂

    Hi Carla

    Love your website. The Our wardrobe site re-directs me to GNet Web Solutions.

    I want to browse through the dresses for a wedding next week.

    Where are they based?

    Hi Samu, thank you! 🙂 Unfortunately Our Wardrobe is no longer in business – they used to be based in Cape Town.
