What college girl doesn’t want an opportunity to expand her wardrobe, maintain a fashionable style and have fun experimenting with designer clothing at an affordable price?

Rent the Runway is the website that offers all of the above, with discounts for formals, parties, holiday events and more, just a click of the mouse away.

For those interested in seeing what Rent the Runway has to offer, their annual fall fashion show will be hosted Friday evening at the Lux Night Club.

The event will include a fashion show and trunk show, allowing potential clients the opportunity to see their merchandise in person.

Rent the Runway allows people to rent designer dresses at 10 percent off  the retail price up to eight days.

If a customer is unsure of what size she will need, she can choose two different sizes to ensure the perfect fit. Rentals are shipped with a prepaid box for easy returns, and RTR even takes care of the dry cleaning.

RTR was founded in 2009 by friends and colleagues, Jennifer Hyman and Jennifer Fleiss, who shared one common complaint most girls are guilty of: having a closet full of clothes and “nothing to wear.”

The company was created to remedy this issue by expanding closets with glamorous, fresh fashion at an affordable price.

“In my opinion, Rent the Runway is an amazing resource for college students, and only people who are extremely enthusiastic and supportive of this brand run the company,” said Katherine Ross public relations representative. “Their passion and belief in the brand has led to a unique quality that is very customer friendly.”

Interested in becoming a part of the RTR experience? Get involved. RTR is always looking to collaborate with students on campus.

Anyone unable to attend the show can browse online for  hundreds of designer dresses and accessories along with helpful customer reviews.

This company is more than accommodating to their consumers’ needs and are eager to help women stay up to date with the latest trends.

“My goal is to make sure that everyone on campus hears the buzz about a company that has so much to offer,” Ross said.

Doors will open to the public at 9 p.m., and there will be no cover charge until 10:30 p.m.
