If you’ve ever dreamed of raiding the closet of your favorite influencer, your most stylish best friend, or that girl walking down Bleecker Street in the jacket you’ve been eyeing for months, you’ve come to the right place. Wardrobe is a fashion marketplace powered by real people with amazing style, where you can borrow coveted pieces from our curated collective closet. Think luxury items you can’t afford to splurge on at the moment, one-of-a-kind vintage finds, and dreamy designer pieces for the big events in your life. It’s earth-friendly (aka the opposite of fast fashion), convenient, and affordable. Welcome to the future of fashion. We believe in:
Circularity: Wardrobe gives purpose to unused apparel — you know, the pieces you only wear one or two times — by making sure it circulates up to 15-20 times. This is revolutionary — literally.
Community: We’ve teamed up with neighborhood dry-cleaners to store your closet items and care for the pieces. By creating these local touchpoints, which we call Wardrobe Hubs, we save you time and ensure that the communities we work in stay connected and thriving.
Curation: We have partnered with the leading influencers, stylists, vintage collectors and fashion editors to create an endless closet of the most distinctive and in-the-moment looks.
Some fashion rental apps want you to conduct swaps at coffee shops or public parks. This pretty inconvenient, not to mention awkward. Others deliver your clothes in a cardboard box. We think that’s wasteful. Plus, who’s going to clean it? We’ve solved these issues by partnering with local dry cleaners to create our Wardrobe Hubs, which act as pick ups, drop offs, and professional cleaning services, all in one. We have 40 hubs throughout Manhattan, so if you work and play in the city, you’re in good hands. See our Hub Map here.
I strongly believe it’s time for a major disruption in the fashion arena, and I am so excited about Wardrobe! Not only do they solve real problems — excess clothes in our closet, desire to try new things — they do it in a smart way that’s a win-win for everyone. It’s a sharing economy in fashion — done right.
