And considering in any given year there are always a few dressy events you have to attend – from weddings and work events to the odd red carpet gala – purchasing something new to wear each and every time isn’t always a realistic idea.

That’s why high-end fashion rental businesses are all the rage right now.

Just imagine, getting to rent a high-end designer dress or purse at a fraction of its retail price. It’s an incredible trade-off, as you can still look and feel incredible without having to blow your entire paycheck.

Have an important event coming up? Here are our favourite places in Toronto where you can find your dream clothes and accessories fit for any occasion.
