MELBOURNE CUP CUSTOMER STORIES

 

As we celebrate the end of Winter and move into warmer weather The Races are a great opportunity to dress up in something elegant, statement and designer to make your mark on the field. A plethora of events make up the Spring Racing Carnival  and renting a designer dress for a fraction of the retail price rather than forking out big bucks for a dress you’re only going to wear once, is a great way to save money, access designer labels you wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford to buy and experiment with your style! The Melbourne Cup is the most important event of Racing Season and dressing to impress is essential. Below three of our lovely customers share their experience of hiring designer dresses from GlamCorner for the Melbourne Cup.


 

Our gorgeous Melbourne based customer Christina is a full time nurse and mother, and with her busy schedule she finds it difficult to find time to search for the perfect dress for special occasions! With a preference for relaxed and casual styles but also wanting to find something fabulous to suit the Melbourne Cup dress code, Christina decided to give GlamCorner a go after hearing raving reviews from her friends who had used our service before. With over 1500 designer dresses to choose from, the option to Advance Try-On dresses before hiring, the option to select a Back-Up dress, delivery directly to your front door and an included return post satchel to easily post the dresses back to us renting a designer dress for a fraction of the retail price was both a money saving option and a time saver! Christina chose to hire our Zimmermann ‘Aracadia Stripe Slouch Dress’,  a beautiful black sheer striped chiffon shirt dress style with a feminine V-neckline and cinched waist. Effortless, modern and classic – this dress was perfect for a windy day at The Races. Read more about Christine’s experience of renting a dress for her day at the Melbourne Cup:

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

When attending a corporate function at Melbourne Cup Carnival it is important to ensure dress attire is fabulous. It is one of the only days of the year when you can dress up and add extra details to ensure you feel good and look good.

 

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

My dress style is more relaxed and casual so it can often mean searching for the perfect dress for days. Being able to search online for a dress and have it delivered in a beautiful box and a return postage parcel makes it so much easier! I am a full time nurse and a mother so shopping at times can be difficult due to shift work and having a toddler in tow.

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

I know my body shape and what works for it. Zimmerman is always a staple in my wardrobe. I appreciate the materials that are used and the cut/shape of the Arcadia Stripe Slouch Dress. Reading other reviews was a way that I was able to assess how the dress would fit on me.

 

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

This is my 3rd time renting from GlamCorner and every time it has been a smooth process. With my last dress hire, it was too small and GlamCorner delivered another dress to me free of charge to ensure I was not left without an outfit. The dresses have always been clean, well pressed, delivered in beautiful packaging and the friendly reminder service afterwards reminds me so I don’t forget to return it!

Tell us about how you first discovered GlamCorner?

Word of mouth from a friend. She exposed me after her wonderful service and it enabled me to feel more comfortable with giving it a go.

 

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

Overall 10/10 experience. From the easy to navigate website, delivery and packaging service, clean clothes delivered on time and friendly reminder service for aftercare of the dress. GlamCorner will now always be my first go to for the perfect outfit for any special occasion. My wardrobe is full of dresses I can’t/won’t wear again and GlamCorner allows me to feel fabulous in the often unattainable.

Our lovely customer Kasma wanted something timeless, elegant and special to wear to the Melbourne Cup 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. Kasma hired our Bronx & Banco ‘Positano Dress’ in Navy, a gorgeous lace dress with a flattering fit that is sophisticated and feminine with just the right amount of skin showing for a touch of drama! Featuring cap sleeves, a subtle lace peplum, sleek ribbon belt to cinch the waist, and a shorter hemline offset by a modest neckline this dress is perfect for a cocktail dress code outdoor event such as the Melbourne Cup.

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

I rented my dress for Melbourne Cup day and attended the big race with my best friend. Melbourne Cup is all about style and fashion and why not go all out with something that makes you feel a million dollars but stays within the budget? I wanted to step it up a notch but not blow my race day budget on something I might only wear once. Plus I didn’t have to fork out on dry cleaning, it was all sorted for me!

 

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

Melbourne Cup is one of the biggest events on the Melbourne racing calendar and I wanted a piece that would stand out but also be comfortable for the day, with a designer name to it to make me feel glamorous without costing an arm and leg. I have wasted so much money, time and energy on buying dresses that are still hanging in my wardrobe collecting dust. By renting from GlamCorner I’m supporting local, am able to choose from so many amazing designers, AND I don’t have to leave the house to do it!

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

When you think Melbourne Cup you instantly think glamour, but you also want style and something that will be timeless and a little different too. I chose the Bronx and Banco label as I have tried their dresses before and they fit my body shape really well so I don’t have to worry about them not fitting me right. The Navy Positano Dress is definitely one of my favourites that I’ve worn and will probably try the white one next! The lace detailing is so pretty.

 

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

I’ve only ever rented with GlamCorner and I keep coming back because it is just so easy, how I never did this for all of the other times I needed a new dress for a special occasion I will never know. I especially like the ‘Back-Up Dress’ option and the ‘Advance Try On’ option too, you don’t have to panic that you need to go emergency shopping at the last minute because you’ve already got your options sorted early.

Tell us about how you first discovered GlamCorner?

I found GlamCorner via a Google search when I needed a dress for the Make-a-Wish ball. I was weary at first in a ‘is this too good to be true’ way but since my first order I haven’t looked back since.

 

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

The GlamCorner website is one of the easiest sites I have used, the team have a great range of FAQs and have been super quick to reply to my email queries if my question isn’t there. Every time I have a friend who needs an event dress I always send them through the GC website details, a couple of friends have hired from GC already and have the same level of praise as I do.

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

The special occasion was the Melbourne Cup Races at Randwick Racecourse. It is the biggest race day of the year and the dress code is bold, flamboyant and fashion forward. I wanted to wear a designer dress for the day and because I could not afford a full price designer dress hiring was the next best option.

 

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

The reason hiring a dress was so appealing was that it was at an affordable price and it was an elegant design and style. Melbourne Cup Race Day is glamorous and everyone looks their best. I wanted to feel and look great for the day and hiring a designer dress allowed me to achieve it.

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

I chose to wear the Angelina Dress by Misha Collection which was elegant, sexy and bold. I loved the velvet fabric which added that extra luxe look. Misha Collection has structured, glamorous and timeless designs.
I choose Misha Collection because I had seen dresses out and about on other people and loved the cut and style of the dress.

 

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

This was the first time I have rented a dress and it was a stress free and pleasurable experience. I loved the choice of designs, customer service and value for money. The website was easy to navigate and order, and I felt comfortable purchasing online as the pictures were clearly showing how the dress would look.

Tell us about how you first discovered GlamCorner?

I first discovered GlamCorner online as I was looking for rental dresses that I could hire for future events. I was looking at a value for money option, normally you can spend $250 + for a dress that you wear once or twice and don’t wear again. Styles are changing and to keep updated and have a new look I felt myself spending more money than necessary. This was an affordable option which allowed me to change up my wardrobe.

 

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

My overall experience with GlamCorner was excellent! I have recommended and will keep recommending it to other women. The service was efficient, personable, professional and friendly. The reminders and updates for delivery and return of the dress were great and useful to the experience.
