Fashion trends are constantly changing and evolving. Therefore, a fashionista must always be in the know to keep up with what’s in and what’s not. But, in today’s economy it’s not always easy to shop within a budget for all the newest and hottest runway trends.
Luckily, there’s one company that has come up with an easy and affordable way for women to stay stylish, without having to repeat an ensemble. Wear Today Gone Tomorrow (WTGT) is a national women’s designer clothing rental website that specializes in dresses, tops, jackets and skirts.
The website provides a rental service for the latest, high-quality designer clothing for women. Wear Today Gone Tomorrow requires no extra monthly membership fees and guarantees authentic designer clothing on a weekly basis for 90% off or for a monthly basis for 70% off retail prices.
WTGT was founded in 2008 by Madeline Passarelli. Passarelli has almost 15 years of experience in the fashion industry and is a former fashion editor of various national fashion publications.
In 2011, Shanda Carstens, a mother of three and President of Noel M. Grace Fashion Rentals LLC, became the owner of WTGT. Carstens refers to WTGT as “closet management”. The basic concept: out with the old and in with the new.
“No one likes to be seen in the same dress twice!”, says Carstens. And with WTGT’s range of designer clothing, it’s easy for women to change up their look for every event and occasion.
Some of the designer clothing available on the website includes Betsey Johnson, Calvin Klein, and Herve Leger. Customers can also shop for clothing by size, price range, and event.
Carstens feels that the biggest reward for and her staff is hearing feedback from customers. “They love feeling like a million bucks in our dresses!”, she says.
In addition to offering a quality selection of designer clothing, WTGT takes considerable measures in providing the best fit to every individual. Each piece of clothing that is available for rental is measured and undergoes sizing calculations to ensure the best fit.
WTGT also offers fit and editorial styling tips for every item of clothing. For further assistance, style consultants are available to answer any style and fit questions customers may have via e-mail.
