Did You Hear? A Designer Share Service Just Launched In Chicago


DesignerShare is the first truly peer-to-peer marketplace for women to rent their designer clothing and accessories to one another. We all know keeping up with appearances is tough and costly,  so I was thrilled when they asked me to try the service.  It was really simple: I set up an account, browsed my options, selected a designer bag, and a rental period.  I immediately received a confirmation email and the Vintage Louis Vuitton Saddle Bag was hand delivered to me right on time.

DesignerShare was started by Sarah Perkins and Bill Meyer, a couple of family friends who came together on a sharing business dream with a fashion twist. Sarah has always loved sharing her clothes and accessories with friends. But she never realized the idea could be a full-blown enterprise until college when she was lending out party dresses to her peers regularly because none of them wanted to wear the same thing over and over again. From this, DesignerShare was born.  Whether you want to borrow a designer dress and accessories or make some cash off items sitting in your closet, DesignerShare can help. They’re working hard each day connecting women so you can look and feel fabulous all while expanding  your network—it’s about building each other up and feeling your most confident.

    I love the idea of a share service. I often buy clothes and then don’t wear them. This would be a perfect alternative to wasting my money.

  7. This is amazing. I love services like these. It makes us shopaholics feel a little bit better about getting new stuff, especially when it’s high quality and high end. 🙂
