Our gorgeous Melbourne based customer Melissa discovered the GlamCorner dress hire service on Instagram and since then has been a happy repeat customer! Melissa most recently hosted her ‘After Five’ themed 40th Birthday party at home and hired our Carla Zampatti ‘Black Sabrina Sheath Dress’ for the special occasion. Here she shares more about her dress rental experience:
Tell us about the special occasion you had and why you wanted to wear a designer dress for it?
My 40th Celebration was hosted at my Melbourne home with 60 guests on Sat 5th November. It was fully catered for with live entertainment. I made the dress code After Five as I wanted everyone looking glam!!!
I wanted to choose a designer dress to look & feel amazing all night.
What was it about this occasion that made renting a dress so appealing for you?
As a big occasion I felt it was important to look my very best. I felt by hiring a dress I could achieve this as the cost of buying what I wanted to wear was between $800-$1000. I am also someone that would wear the dress once.
Tell us about the dress and the designer label you chose, and why you chose it?
I chose the Carla Zampatti ‘Black Sabrina Sheath Dress’ because it is a stunning timeless piece that was so comfortable & easy to wear. The quality & fit of Carla Zampatti is superb & I knew this because my sister had worn one of her gowns for her wedding day.
Have you rented a dress before or was this your first time?
This was my second time hiring from GlamCorner! I also rented the Thurley ‘Bed of Roses dress’ a few days prior for my 40th Birthday function at Crown Oaks Day in Melbourne. I was so impressed with the service I had received.
Tell us about how you first discovered GlamCorner?
I am a very big fan of Instagram & had come across a few dress hiring posts. I then went to the website and read all the reviews which helped me decide on renting from GlamCorner
How was you overall experience with GC (online and offline) and would you recommend us to other women?
My experience with GlamCorner has been amazing. Lucy & Bronte, of the GC customer happiness team, had informed me at the start of the week that the dress was returned late from the previous person & they would be working hard to have the dress dry cleaned & out to me by the Friday. In the meantime they sent four backup dresses incase it didn’t arrive. They communicated with me via email & phone calls which I felt was excellent service. I’d like to say a massive thank you to the GlamCorner team for your exceptional service, you are my number one!!
Thanks Melissa! We’re so happy we were able to make the perfect 40th Birthday dress hire possible for your special day in Melbourne, VIC. You looked amazing! We look forward to seeing you again soon xoxo
