Luxury dress hire, for the Individual With Refined Taste

Besides giving clients an extensive choice of elegant pieces, we aim to contribute to sustainability efforts by extending the lifespan of our garments. These are the earth-friendly fashion items you can look forward to when choosing our services.

  • Cocktail dress hire. Sparkle and shimmer in the Attico sequinned V-neck jumpsuit or the Johanna Ortiz bow embellished, embroidered, velvet midi dress. Perhaps it’s more classic or avant-garde elegance you’re after? See the Miu crystal-embellished cady dress or the Gucci classic shift dress with sequined bow and collar detailing in our collection. For statement shoulders, consider the Stella McCartney one-shoulder Duchesse-satin and cady mini dress or the Leal Daccarett opera one-shoulder dress.
  • Wedding. Whether you’re looking for bridesmaid dresses or mother of the bride dress hire, our wedding guest range includes the bouquet-inspired Red Valentino floral embroidered tulle dress or the Erdem Constantine cape effect tiered floral print silk voile dress. For a more festive look, you have the option of a Geon J top and skirt or Rixo London’s Laura Jackson daisy, velvet-trimmed, sequined, crepe midi dress.
  • Party. Frolic in frills in the Solace London Frances strapless, ruffle-trimmed faille jumpsuit, or MSGM’s one-shoulder ruffled crepe mini dress. If, instead, you want to float into the party scene, try the Maria Lucia Hohan white Godiva pleated silk-blend gown or Alexander McQueen white strapless silk organza gown.
  • Formal day wear. The Valentino pink, pleated wool, and silk-blend ‘grain de poudre’ mini dress and cape knee-length shift dress offers clean lines yet with a feminine feel. The Dolce & Gabbana floral-print cotton-poplin midi dress or Erdem floral print mini dress also boast defined structures.
  • Evening and Black tie. For a dramatic silhouette and bold colour, consider the Carolina Herrera ‘cache-coeur’ taffeta shirt dress or lace dress with puffed sleeves. The Johanna Ortiz bow-accented ruffled gown is the epitome of elegance in rich colour.

Formal Dress Hire

Being best on ground is easy when you know the right look for your event.

A Guide to Formal Dress Hire for the First-Time Renter

Buying an outfit for a formal event is often an expensive exercise that leaves you with a wardrobe of garments you might wear once or twice a year at most. Formal dress hire eliminates the need to collect clothes that collect dust by giving you access to stylish outfits for any event. Fashion Alta Moda offers online formal dress hire in Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane. This guide to formal dress hire aims to help you get the most out of your first rental experience with us.

Four Reasons Why Renting a Dress Is Better Than Buying One

While buying a brand-new outfit for a special occasion can be exciting, it gets tedious when you find yourself purchasing a dress every time you get invited to a party. Here are four reasons to rent a designer dress instead of buying one for the next event you attend.

  • Renting saves you money. Formal dresses are usually expensive off the rack, with even higher price points for alterations or custom designs. You can often rent high-end designer clothing that typically costs thousands of dollars for under 20 percent of its retail price.
  • Gain access to unlimited designer pieces. Clothing rental services make high fashion more accessible, allowing you to wear designer pieces without the commitment of purchasing them. We stock dresses from designers such as Alexander McQueen, Prada, Valentino, and Louis Vuitton.
  • No storage space is required. Formal dresses are often bulky items that take up a lot of wardrobe space - making collecting them impossible if you have limited space in your home. Renting a dress eliminates the responsibility of storing it after you have worn it.
  • Rentals are the eco-conscious choice. Fast fashionrefers to cheap, disposable clothing that you only buy to follow a trend. Renting clothes is a more sustainable choice that helps you wear stylish outfits all the time without creating waste or pollution associated with clothing production.

Tips for Hiring a Dress That Fits

You may be sceptical about sizing when renting a dress for the first time, especially if you need a perfect fit for a wedding or public event. We have a team of stylists in-house to answer all your questions around sizing before you hire a formal dress from our Melbourne, Brisbane, or Sydney stockists. Here are three tips to help you get the best fit:

  • Hire more than one dress. While we do supply a detailed sizing guide, every human body is unique, and there is always a chance that the dress you hire will not feel perfectly fitted. If you are unsure of your size, hire two sizes to give yourself an alternative outfit option.
  • Take accurate measurements. Get a friend to measure your bust, shoulders, waist, and hips with a soft measuring tape before you rent a garment online. Take note of the fabric your chosen dress is made of - some fabrics allow for more stretch than others.
  • Try on a similar style in person. Try on a dress in the same style as your chosen rental dress to help visualise the fit and how the fabric will fall on your body. We also offer periodic, pop-up fitting opportunities for ourformal dress hire in Brisbane and other major cities across Australia.
