Rent the Runway - Ambassador Review
Who Created Rent the Runway ?
Co-created by two Harvard business graduates, Rent the Runway got their big break around 2009. When their start-up was featured in a New York Times Post and went viral overnight: 100,000 people across the country signed up for what would become the first large scale dress rental company and America's largest dry cleaner. They now have over a billion dollar valuation.

Why did it take ten years before becoming a RTR ambassador? Because I wanted to only form partnerships with companies I already use and believe in. I only partner with companies that fit my current lifestyle - you all know I blog about what I like and. actually do/use. I can not be bought. So when Rent the Runway (RTR) reached out I was excited to share with the world about this great, woman-owned company.
& now Rent the Runway has committed to support Black Owned Companies as well. As a Black woman, I stand with companies that take a stand and will plan to devote at least 15 percent of their shelf/rental space to Black Owned Companies. RTR joins companies like powerhouse Sephora. My review of Rent the Runway as a Black woman and blogger is one of few minorities. I want this to change as Black women deserve luxury items, high fashion moments, & so many more opportunities for Black women and fashionistas.
Rent the Runway Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
1. What if I damage the dress?
Minor tears that can be sewn, small spills that can be fixed with dry cleaning - there will not be a charge to you as the items at RTR are often insured. Instead they fix the small damages in house at NO COST To YOU! So renting is a better option than buying a $800 dress and returning it. With RTR you can rent it for $70 and RTR covers dry cleaning, shipping cost, and even a second sizes depending on which subscription or 4-day rental you choose. If you lose the dress then contact Rent the Runway's customer service for assistance - there then may be a charge to you.
2. Dry cleaning before I send it back? No! Rent the Runway is actually the largest dry cleaner in America! Just send it back and they take care of everything.
