If You Only Have P500 For Your Prom Dress, Consider Renting From This Online Shop

Because we know you don't want to spend thousands on a dress you'll only wear once!

(SPOT.ph) Grand celebrations and fancy events are all fun and games but before the big day comes, you usually spend ages trying to find the perfect dress—and most of the time, the ones you actually like will burn a hole through your wallet. Totally not worth it for something you're probably only going to wear once.

Because this is such a common struggle, Kimberly Pomperada started Brands 4 Lease, an online service that lets people rent gowns and dresses at affordable price points. "Our shop basically provides online borrowing services of branded gowns and dresses. This is to prevent over spending for one-time use garments and allow them to borrow for special events, weddings, and prenups," she shares.

Brands 4 Lease carries pieces from local and international brands like BCBG, H&M, Forever 21, Zoo, River Island, Apartment 8, Style Staple, and more. They even have dresses by local designers Andrea Tetangco and Emil Ocampo. Depending on the dress you want to borrow, rental fees range from P200 to P899.

To rent, simply browse their catalog on Instagram, book the dress online via private message, and return the dress. Kimberly says "We pick up the garment from their given address and shoulder the return fee as well. Dry cleaning and minor repairs are shouldered by us also."

Now you know where to go the next time you need a formal dress!
