Rent the Runway aims to become "the Amazon prime of rental. Now valued at $1 billion, the female-founded digitally native company has dramatically impacted how people shop.
What began in 2009 as a rental service for occasion dresses has transformed into a full-scale empire of everyday fashion, bags, & accessories. In the last 3 years, the company has gone from dressing members less than 3 days a year to 1/3 of the year. And with partnerships ranging from WeWork to West Elm, the brand shows no signs of slowing its retail takeover.
