Want A Sabyasachi Lehenga For Your Best Friend's Wedding? Rent It Here!
Stage3 is an online space that lets you rent designer outfits for weddings & festive occasions at a fraction of their retail prices. Needless to say, we love this concept and their website.
What Makes It Awesome
For those of us with who love designerwear, but sadly don’t have enough funds to purchase any, Stage3 is a blessing. They let you rent outfits by big-shot Indian designers—such as Sabyasachi Mukherjee, Payal Singhal, Rina Dhaka, Masaba Gupta, Manish Malhotra and Gauri & Nainika, among others—for just a fraction of their retail prices (10-15% to be specific).
Been your eternal desire to wear a Manish Malhotra lehenga once in your lifetime? The dark pink lehenga with heavy detailing will be perfect for your sister's wedding ceremony, and the edgy black crop top and net lehenga by Payal Singhal is great for dinner parties and engagement ceremonies. Want to go a more traditional route? They’ve got gorgeous saris by Raw Mango and Satya Paul, too!
The process of renting out is pretty simple—first, they alter the outfit you choose according to your measurements (they even have a video explaining how to take accurate measurements), deliver it to you dry-cleaned & steam-pressed, and pick it up the day after the event. How simple is that?
The team at Stage3 consists of fashion designers, entrepreneurs, merchandisers, and stylists so they curate the best of festive-wear from designers. Don’t worry—they update their inventory of outfits and accessories regularly.
What Could Be Better
You will have to be patient and sift through a bunch of options before you finally find a not-so OTT one.
To get a better look and feel of the outfit before you rent it, you can drop by Stage 3's outlets in Hauz Khas and Rajouri too.
Price: Rentals starting at INR 1500.
