Karl Lagerfeld said: "Luxury is the ease of a t-shirt in a very expensive dress." And if you've ever worn a beautiful high-end designer dress, you'll know it's true. It just slips on, fits you like a glove, gives you confidence and you feel like a dream.
There's also the "good feel factor" of searching for a luxury dress for that special occasion. Shopping for luxury goods triggers a positive emotional response according to neuroscientists: the anticipation, searching through stores or websites, your heart racing and skin tingling when you finally find what you're looking for. But the elation and euphoria is often dampened by the price tag and that nagging "can I really justify the price for something I'll wear once or twice?"

GlamCorner. Gold, Bold and Beautiful
This dynamic duo believes that while many women are willing to buy designer pieces for work or regular wear, justifying the price tag on a one-off occasion dress is sometimes beyond their financial limits. So they saw a huge opportunity to capture this occasional luxury market by offering women a unique online shopping experience that lets them rent their dream dress for a fraction of the retail price.
And with over $6M worth of fashion being hired out since launching in 2012, it would seem that GlamCorner have tapped into a niche and growing market.
Ralph Lauren says, "I don't design clothes, I design dreams" and dreamy is what GlamCorner is all about. GlamCorner gives you the benefit of an endless wardrobe of designer dresses, gowns and accessories and will have you looking and feeling the way you deserve to, without the price tag.
