Make an Impact

Best Friend’s Closet is changing up the fashion industry in South Africa, by enabling women to rent exquisite dresses and accessories for that special occasion or event. 

Gone are the days of having to spend huge amounts only to wear that dress once, or hoping not to be spotted in the same outfit twice on social media. Instead, we provide our clients access to a whole wardrobe to rent from, ensuring a fresh outfit while saving time, money and making a positive environmental contribution.

Renting is the newest trend globally in sustainable fashion. We like to think of it as “dress recycling”, resulting in a far lower ecological impact. Additionally, we donate all our dresses to charitable causes once they are no longer in circulation.
