Four Canberra-based clothing rental businesses for any occasion

Posted on

Looking for the perfect outfit for a winery wander, Kingston date night, or wedding at the Gallery? Forget breaking the bank for something new—we have a budget-friendly, sustainable way to up your style game.

Now we know that clothing and dress rental isn’t exactly a new idea (in fact, it’s an incredibly popular, carbon-friendly way to try something out of your fashion comfort zone) but with most businesses based in Sydney or Melbourne, we wouldn’t blame you if the thought of hiring an outfit without trying it on makes you break out in a cold sweat.

But the good news is there are some local businesses right here in Canberra making all your budget-friendly, sustainable fashion fantasies come true—and the best part is there’s no need to stress about your fab new outfit coming in time for the big day!

Here are four Canberra-based clothing rental businesses, perfect for every special occasion.
