Can’t afford it? Rent it!

Fashion, News, UK
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.

If you want to feel a little special, you can go for a Marques Almeida jacket - worth over £1000 - for £200. https
