Just in time for holiday parties, Rent the Runway has opened a second NYC location, a store in Chelsea where you can find red carpet looks for as little as $30. That’s the bottom line for a four-day rental that includes the cost of dry cleaning before the next renter. Fees go up to $500 for top-of-the-line designer gowns.
The new store at 18 West 18th, just down the block from Marshall’s and TJMaxx on Sixth Avenue and H&M on Fifth Avenue, accepts both walk-ins and appoinments. Walking in is free. Appointments are $25 for a 45-minute session with a fashion stylist, or $40 for a 90 minute session.
Both the Flatiron store and the larger Rent the Runway Soho warehouse location at 163 Varick Street are open seven days.
