Today is a guest blog post of one of the graduates I have the pleasure to mentor: Hannah Purser. Her business is My VIP Wardrobe. My VIP Wardrobe is a fashion rental service offering women a virtual wardrobe of hundreds of glamorous dresses from as little as £17.50 + P&P. The founder of My VIP Wardrobe, started the business whilst at university in Cambridge and officially launched successfully to the public in May 2014.

Being a student and going out weekend after weekend, it started to become a very expensive lifestyle to have. I knew that it wasn’t just me going out, having to spend money on outfits each weekend and this is why I had to come up with a solution to this: My VIP Wardrobe.
Having your own business is an amazing feeling knowing how much you can help other people as well as yourself. I believe in this concept so much that there is no discussion as to whether it was the right decision or not. When I first started this business, someone sent me a quote and I’ve never forgotten it: ‘If you can’t stop thinking about it. Don’t stop working for it’. Everyday I work for this dream.
There are always obstacles in your way; but there are always solutions to these. Pick yourself up, brush yourself off and keep going 🙂
The process of renting a dress is so easy for everyone! Just rent your dress online and we will send your dress(es) via courier service on the chosen date you have selected. This means you don’t need to go to the shops and trail through all the rails for your perfect dress; we have it here for you! When you’ve partied in your dress, just place it back in the box it came in and our courier will pick it up straight from your door. We will clean the dress for you and place it back in our virtual wardrobe for next time! It really is that simple!
