Can’t afford it? Rent it!

Streetwear fashion can now be rented in London. Can’t afford that luxurious handbag? No problem! The Drop is here for you. A fashion stylist opened a pop up store in Westfield London renting affordable designer goods. Alize Demange of The Drop believes this is how people will get new clothing in the future. Demange told the BBC that "It might seem strange, but it could be something that becomes part of our everyday lives. An bag you might want to wear for a week but not want to invest all the money into buying it." The Drop offers clothes from well known brands such as Coach, House of Holland, Axel Arigato and Dirty South. T-Shirts can be rented for less than £10. If you want to feel a little special, you can go for a Marques Almeida jacket - worth over £1000 - for £200. https

The Little Black Dress: iconic, remarkable, exceptional. Audrey Hepburn’s legendary Givenchy dress was auctioned 12 years ago, but where did all the money go? The dress – although long and unfitting to the modern definition of an LBD – has gone through its own long journey. Just like its owner – who went from chorus girl to starring roles to American Film Institute’s third-greatest female screen legend – the dress has also gone through many stages in order to reach its current unknown location. It should be of major consideration that there are three original Little Black Dresses floating around in the world. The original Dress is in Givenchy’s private archive, and it is one of the two copies that Hepburn took with her after shooting Breakfast at Tiffany’s that gained the most at
