DERBY DAY BLACK AND WHITE
Image Source: whatwouldkarldo
Derby Day is one of the many prestigious Spring Racing Carnival events leading up to the Melbourne Cup but what makes Derby Day special is it’s classic black and white dress code. Dressing for Derby Day takes a little more consideration as to stand out in a sea of black and white means finding the perfect black and/or white dress that is elegant, timeless and sophisticated as well as daring and contemporary! Three of our lovely customers share how their search was made easy with GlamCorners collection of over 1500 designer dresses available to hire for a fraction of the retail price.

 


Our lovely customer Amelia wanted something elegant and special to wear to Derby Day in Brisbane without breaking the budget and as a loyal GlamCorner customer she knew we would have something perfect for the occasion, with over 1,500 designer dresses to choose from. Amelia hired our Thurley ‘Bach Embroidered Dress’ a gorgeous white dress with romantic details that make it perfect to rent for Spring! Layers of soft tulle and matte organza are embroidered with paisley florals for an exquisite finish and it features an alluring plunging neckline and cut outs at the shoulder for a contemporary edge.

Tell us about the special occasion you had and why you wanted to wear a designer dress for it?

I’m originally from Brisbane so I was traveling down to Melbourne to attend Derby Day at Flemington Racecourse. I wanted to wear a designer dress because of the prestige of the event on the racing calendar.

 

What was it about this occasion that made renting a dress so appealing for you?

I didn’t want to go a purchase a designer dress that I knew I would never wear again! That is the reason I chose to hire one. Also it was so hassle free, I had it delivered to the address I was staying in Melbourne plus I didn’t have to pay for any dry cleaning fees!

Tell us about the dress and the designer label you chose, and why you chose it?

I chose the white Thurley ‘Bach Embroidered Dress’ which correlated with the theme of Derby Day. Thurley’s latest collection is amazing with beautiful lace and embroidery. I have previously worn Thurley dresses so I knew how amazing it would make me feel when I wore it.

 

Have you rented a dress before or was this your first time?

As I mentioned above I have previously worn a Thurley dress and I actually rented it from GlamCorner! The reason I rented the dress was because I love designer dresses although I will only invest in one when I know I will get a few wears out of it. For special occasions I will rent one so I can be more on trend.

Tell us about how you first discovered GlamCorner?

The first time I discovered GlamCorner was when I had a post Marathon Lunch I attended. I wanted to wear a dress which made me feel confident and beautiful.

 

How was you overall experience with GC (online and offline) and would you recommend us to other women?

I always recommend my girlfriends to hire dresses from GlamCorner. I have only good things to say about the company and all of my dealings with them have been a pleasant experience. I highly recommend anyone who has an upcoming event to to hire a dress from GlamCorner!

HIRE THIS DRESS NOW

 


Our beautiful Melbourne based customer Bianca knew she needed to wear a knockout dress to Derby Day, something elegant, luxe and special to suit the Derby Day black and white dress code. She also knew she would only wear the dress once, as pics of this special occasion would definitely be posted all over social media. Paying full price for a designer dress as well as a fascinator and accessories was way beyond the budget so instead Bianca chose to hire from GlamCorner! With over 1500 designer dresses to choose from and over 100 incredible local and international designer labels the choices were overwhelming! Bianca chose to rent our romantic and intricately detailed Thurley ‘Mother of Pearl Dress’ which features Victorian-inspired corded lace and pearl beading for a luxurious finish. A high neckline and fitted long sleeves strike a stunning balance against the mini skirt that skims off the hips for a flattering fit-and-flare shape.

Tell us about the special occasion you had and why you wanted to wear a designer dress for it?

I hadn’t been to the spring racing carnival for many years so I was extremely excited to be attending Derby Day. After witnessing so many fabulous dresses from the Cox Plate via social media, I was on a mission to find something special to wear!

 

What was it about this occasion that made renting a dress so appealing for you?

I had an image in my head of how I wanted to look, but simply couldn’t afford the price tag! Hiring a dress made putting an outfit together so much easier without budgeting.

Tell us about the dress and the designer label you chose, and why you chose it?

The dress was long sleeve with intricate lace and beading. A beautiful pearl colour that finished above the knee. Thurley has some amazing designs out at the moment but I choose this ‘Mother of Pearl Dress‘ as I needed to wear traditional colours for the Derby.

 

Have you rented a dress before or was this your first time?

This was my first time renting a dress. One of the main reasons I choose to hire was because I never wear an outfit twice for a special occasion. As fabulous as social media is, it’s hard to repost a photo in the same getup!

Tell us about how you first discovered GlamCorner?

I discovered GlamCorner on Instagram. After visiting the website, I was taken aback by the vast variety of items I could choose from!

 

How was you overall experience with GC (online and offline) and would you recommend us to other women?

My experience with GlamCorner was above and beyond. I had a number of questions regarding my dress leading up to the occasion. Everybody was happy to help and in a reasonable timeframe. Everybody asked where my dress was from on the day so GlamCorner came highly recommended!

Our lovely customer Brianna hired our gorgeous Thurley ‘Bach Embroidered Dress’ for Derby Day and knew she needed to pair it with a stunning fascinator to complete her sophisticated black and white look! Knowing that she was only going to wear the statement headpiece once it made sense to rent it for a fraction of the retail price. With GlamCorners large collection of fascinators in all shapes and sizes, Brianna had a variety of styles to choose from and decided to hire our Morgan and Taylor ‘Cheryl Fascinator’.

Tell us about the special occasion you had and why you wanted to wear a designer fascinator for it?

Living in Melbourne the spring racing carnival is always the place to be seen and my girlfriends and I were due for a girls day out, so we decided to attend Derby Day on the last weekend in October 2016. As the event was approaching, I decided I wanted a statement headpiece and something that was black and white (because that is the theme of Derby Day), I also determined I didn’t want to buy a fascinator because they are far too expensive to only be worn once!! I had seen similar fascinators in Myer and David Jones and already had a good idea that it would match the outfit I had decided to hire from GlamCorner.

What was it about this occasion that made renting a fascinator so appealing for you?

Mainly because I didn’t want to spend hundreds on a headpiece I was going to wear once – I hate being an outfit repeater and hiring a fascinator was the perfect option!!

Tell us about the fascinator and the designer label you chose, and why you chose it?

It was a Morgan and Taylor headband in black and white. I chose this option as I liked that it was quite large, and felt that it would compliment the white dress I chose. I also decided that I wanted black as the main feature for my headpiece and black for my shoes. The white in the middle gave it a look of freshness!! I also liked the subtle white flower in the headpiece, though my dress was ivory, from a distance you couldn’t spot the difference.

 

Have you rented an outfit before or was this your first time?

I sure have. I have now rented from GlamCorner three times and have had nothing but great experiences every time!!

Tell us about how you first discovered GlamCorner?

I had heard about designer dress hire and done a few google searches. GlamCorner was always one of the first to come up on Google and after comparing it to a few other dress hire sites, I decided they would be the best purely due to affordability and that you had insurance cover to a certain limit if there was minor damage to the dress.

 

How was you overall experience with GC (online and offline) and would you recommend us to other women?

I LOVE GlamCorner. As soon as I have an event worth dressing up for, I get on the site straight away!! The options are endless and there are styles for every occasion. My sneaky trick is to head to department stores and try the brands on in advance! That way you get a feel for how the brand fits your body. That’s my main tip for anyone looking to hire an outfit from GlamCorner!! The response rate is always fast and efficient and the service is five star. An amazing initiative from an amazing team – well done and I can’t wait to go browsing for my next event!!
