Sustainable Fashion: 3 Stores Where You Can Rent Classy Gowns And Evening Wear In Manila

Renting OOTDs is an eco-friendly and pocket-friendly way of getting dressed to the nines!

We're down to the last few months of the year—and before we know it, it's the holidays. Brace yourselves for heavy traffic, extended mall hours, and of course, an abundance of parties and get-togethers! On top of Christmas and New Year's Eve, there's also the office party, the high school homecoming, the ladies' night out, the weddings held in the ber months, and don't forget the annual family reunion...


As we prepare for the busiest months of the year, it's high time to get creative in coming up with different outfits for each occasion. Thankfully, there's a much more eco-friendly way of spicing up your wardrobe. With the rise of sustainable and green fashion, more and more fashionistas are into renting designer pieces. By leasing clothes and accessories, you always have an excuse to wear something new—you can skip outfit repeating minus the guilt, because you're reducing your carbon footprint, too.
