Style Lend Is Changing Fashion Consumption
We are big proponents of circular consumption—ensuring that the items are reused even at end-life. There are some great solutions out there but none like Style Lend. Style Lend is a peer to peer marketplace changing the way women shop. In 2012, Style Lend emerged at the helm of the fashion technology boom with one mission — to transform the way women consumed fashion. It’s one-half Rent the Runway and one-half ThredUp.
Since its inception, Style Lend is well on its way to changing the way modern women shop by encouraging women to lend instead of discard and rent instead of buy— helping alleviate some of the harm that fashion can bring to the environment. Style Lend is connecting real closets curated by real women with a keen eye for beautifully made pieces and items. Style Lend provides access to a community that facilitate smarter, more conscious shopping habits with direct shipping from lender to borrower, environmentally-friendly packaging to eliminate waste and online editorial features on fashion-savvy lenders like Vogue Editor, Sophia Li, Model, Anita Hodosi and Marketing Agency Founder, Babba Canales, who are among some of the women lending out their stylish wardrobe on Style Lend.
Now more relevant that ever, Female Entrepreneur and Founder of Style Lend, Lona Alia has provided a solution to the never-ending sartorial dilemma of the need to always look incredibly chic and distinct, while also providing an effortless way to increase extra income (meet your new side hustle!) by allowing women to monetize their treasures that they are unable to part with by renting them out on the site, and earning a profit along the way. Lona is a passionate warrior for the planet who is inspired by environmental sustainability in the fashion industry. She has always been opposed to fast fashion and the extreme toll it takes on the planet, filling landfills at alarming rates and accumulating tons of waste.
