Year 12 Formal is such a big moment for every high school student – it’s time to celebrate twelve years of hard work at school! It’s also a fun moment to hire a little bit of luxury with your friends – whether it’s a luxury hotel room to get ready in, or a luxury limousine to arrive in. So hiring a luxury designer gown for your school formal also makes a lot of sense! In this post our beautiful Melbourne based customer Savannah tells us about how she won Formal Queen in our amazing Katia Evening Gown by Langhem:
Tell us about the special occasion you had and why you wanted to wear a designer dress for it?
My year 12 formal took place on the 6th May in Melbourne, in order to celebrate our high school years amongst friends and teachers. The night involved a three-course meal, an awards ceremony, taking lots and lots of pictures and dancing to all kinds of music. If you ask any girl at my school, they would agree that the most important thing about a formal is the dress. I wanted to make a statement for my last year of school, so I thought, what better way to do it than to ‘frock up’ in a designer dress!
What was it about your Year 12 formal that made renting a dress so appealing for you?
A year 12 formal is one of those occasions in which you wear the dress, but don’t find another opportunity to wear that same dress again… and of course, being a student, you want to make a decision that is financially plausible. Renting the dress seemed like the best option for me in my situation, because of its practicality and budget friendliness!
Tell us about the dress and the designer label you chose, and why you chose it?
I chose the stunning Katia Evening Gown by Langhem for my year 12 formal. After trying so many dresses, this was the only gown that I whole-heartedly said ‘wow, I love it.’ I set out to find a dress that was elegant, sparkly and classy, and this ticked all the boxes for me. It fit comfortably all night, and I received so many compliments!
Have you rented a dress before or was this your first time? For your first time renting a dress, what made you consider it?
This was my first ever experience renting a dress. I knew I wanted to wear the Langhem Katia Gown for my formal, but I wasn’t prepared to pay the retail price for something I’d only get the opportunity to wear once. Renting it seemed like the best alternative for me.
Tell us about how you first discovered GlamCorner?
After a very long and unsuccessful shopping trip with mum, I went out on a limb and Googled ‘Langhem Katia Gown Rental’ to see if I could get the dress I set my heart on, and GlamCorner was the first website that caught my attention. I read the reviews of the dress, looked around the website, and placed the order that night!
How was your overall experience with GC (online and offline) and would you recommend us to other women?
My experience with GlamCorner was splendid; from the moment of placing the order, to getting the confirmation email that the dress was returned on time. I found the website to be very accessible, with clear information describing how the rental process works. I was nervous about getting my dress on time for formal, but received the package in perfect condition on the exact day I anticipated. The pre-paid return satchel attached was hassle free and very convenient; all I had to do was place the dress in the satchel, seal it up and put it in the post box! Everything about the service was simple and stress-free. I would recommend GlamCorner to anyone who wishes to rent a stunning designer dress for their upcoming occasion!
Congratulations Savannah and thanks for this awesome review! What a great GC story and we’re so happy you won Formal Queen in our dress! You definitely deserved it!
