The Rent the Runway sample sale started up yesterday at 260 5th Avenue (between 28th and 29th Street) and here is the scoop from a MadParkNews reader…

‘The selection is good, with dresses by Herve Leger, missoni, Vera Wang, milly, Rebecca Taylor, Lela rose, Tibi, Christian Sirano (from project runway) and many more, and there were no lines to get in the door. Prices are about 70% off retail for the gently used clothing. They will be replenishing through the week with similar items and they had a range of sizes. Biggest drawback was the fitting room, which had a line to get in.’ This reader bought a missoni dress for ~$185 (normally $745) and a Tibi dress for $59 (normally $390). She also noted that almost everyone in the dressing room was trying on a Herve Leger dress.

A lot of you already use Rent the Runway to literally ‘rent’ a designer dress at ~90% off the purchase price for special occasions like weddings, special events, and nights out. You wear your favorite high-end fashion designers and then just put it back in the mail. (www.renttherunway.com)
