The Birdcage Stylist

The Birdcage Stylist just recently relaunched their website. Buying designer outfits can be expensive, hence why I am such a huge fan of designer rentals. I personally am not a fan of being caught in the same ‘event’ dress twice. Why buy when you can hire?

How long has ‘The Birdcage Stylist’ been up and running?

The Birdcage Stylist has been up and running since May 2014. Since then, we have grown tremendously, starting out with only a few items in our collection to over 50 dresses now. We have also gained a huge social media following of over 8000 on Instagram in this short time.

For those who can’t afford to buy designer garments, how does the hiring of a garment work?

Lets face it, buying a brand new designer dress for an occasion can really hurt the bank balance! And for the dress to be only worn once or twice and then hung in the back of the closet collecting dust is such a waste! That is why we created our business, to give the opportunity for women to hire designer garments at a fraction of the price for their event and then return them back to us 🙂

Buying online can be risky at times, if a customer hires a dress and it is not the correct fit how can The Birdcage Stylist accommodate to satisfying the customer?

We offer a sizing guide for all of our dresses, so that customers can measure themselves at home and prevent any sizing issues. However, every body type is different and on the rare occasion that there is a sizing issue or the dress just plain doesn’t look right, we will gladly send out an alternative dress if there is enough time before the event. If we can’t get a return dress to you in time, we offer a credit note less postage costs to be used at any time for your next event.

What Australian designers can we expect to see when hiring?

To name a few, we currently stock Alex Perry, Galanni, Costello, Yeojin Bae, Maticevski, Elle Zeitoune, Nicholas The Label, Lover The Label, Lisa Ho, Camilla, Camilla and Marc, Rachel Gilbert, Bronx and Banco, Manning Cartel, Ginger and Smart, Shakuhachi, Carla Zampatti

What can we expect to see next from “The Birdcage Stylist”

We have just re-launched our website. We have added some new dresses to our collection to celebrate also. Right now we are looking for a milliner to partner with to stock great headpieces on our site and would love to also branch into hiring designer handbags in the future. Watch this space!!
