Customer Story: birthday party dress hire

Choosing the right birthday party dress is very important - especially when it's for a milestone event like your father's 60th birthday. At GlamCorner, we lend dresses to our beautiful customers for birthday parties literally every day of the week! So we've become pretty good at it :) In this post our glamourous customer Sarah tells us about how she rented the very popular Self Portrait Tiered Guipure Lace Mini Dress for her father's birthday:

Tell us about the special occasion you had and why you wanted to wear a designer dress for it?

I hired the Self Portrait Tiered Guipure Lace Mini Dress for my Dad's 60th birthday party that was held at a beautiful restaurant with 50 of our closest friends and relatives. I thought it would be perfect occasion to hire a designer dress as it was an upmarket restaurant and I was making a speech so wanted to feel confident and well presented in front of the group.

What was it about this birthday party that made renting a dress so appealing for you?

My Dad's 60th was a milestone birthday and large celebration so I thought it would be the perfect occasion to hire an exclusive and beautiful garment. I opted to rent a dress for the occasion as I knew there would be many photos taken and I'd like to look back and be pleased with the outfit. Hiring the dress was also very convenient as it was a peek period at work and it was easy to make a selection from dozens of designer outfits compared to finding and buying a garment that was of equal quality and style while being inexpensive.


Tell us about the dress and the designer label you chose, and why you chose it?

I had noticed the Self Portrait dress on Instagram one day and thought it was incredibly beautiful and a perfect garment for a winter occasion. It did not disappoint, when I received the Tiered Guipure Lace Mini Dress from GlamCorner it was equally as beautiful in person as it was in the photos. The deep maroon colour, lace long sleeves and high neck made it a wonderful dress for a cooler winter evening. I did not hesitate selecting a Self Portrait piece as the brand is renowned for having unique, beautifully made and high quality garments.

Have you rented a dress before or was this your first time? For your first time renting a dress, what made you consider it?

It was my first time renting a dress and it was such a wonderful experience, I can't wait to rent another! I have some friends that have rented outfits from GlamCorner for special occasions in the past such as the Melbourne Racing Carnival and their 21st birthday parties and each of them have had successful experiences when hiring. What I loved most about the renting experience is being able to wear a really high quality and exclusive dress that I didn't have to commit to purchasing. I often fall into the trap of wearing things once and this service eliminates spending money unnecessarily on items that gather dust in the wardrobe.

Tell us about how you first discovered GlamCorner?

I discovered GlamCorner when I was scrolling through Instagram. When I was considering renting the dress I jumped on to the GlamCorner website to research the cost and convenience of the service. I quickly discovered what an easy process it was and was particularly pleased that they provided the return bag and I was not required to dry-clean the garment after I wore it. I was really happy that the cost stated in renting the dress was the final cost and there were not hidden fees. The website was particularly easy to navigate through and I was blown away by the number of designer outfits that were available.

How was your overall experience with GC (online and offline) and would you recommend us to other women?

My overall experience was fantastic! 10/10! Reserving the dress was extremely easy and a confirmation email was promptly sent through after I clicked order. The dress arrived beautifully wrapped in tissue paper in a large box. When I pulled it out it was in perfect condition without a crease! The large returns bag accompanied the dress along with instructions on how to return the dress. It was a hassle free experience. The dress looked fantastic, I received many compliments throughout the night and it photographed very well. I have already recommended GlamCorner to many of my friends and I think it's a great cost effective alternative to buying outfits that are worn once.


We're so happy to hear that you had an amazing time at your father's 60th birthday party Sarah! You looked amazing and we can't wait to dress you for your next event <3 xx
