Rent The Runway
Rent the Runway is an online service that provides designer dress and accessory rentals. Initially a purely e-commerce company, it began to expand into brick-and-mortar in 2013, opening three retail locations in the United States. Rent the Runway was started by Jennifer Hyman and Jennifer Fleiss, who met at Harvard Business School and launched the company in November 2009. Rent the Runway now offers over 50,000 dresses and 10,000 accessories from over 200 designer partners, including Badgley Mischka, Vera Wang, Alexis Bittar, Carolina Herrera and Calvin Klein.
