Lotus Boutique marries the convenience of dress hire with the service of a high-end boutique to create the ultimate shopping experience for women

Lotus Boutique, a designer dress hire shop, that gives Northern Irish women all the luxury of the catwalk without the cost has officially launched in Holywood. The boutique aims to save women money and wardrobe space by hiring fancy frocks, some worth thousands of pounds, from as little as £95. That means no more justifying buying a new outfit for every event.

Tamara Duncan, Owner of Lotus Boutique, comments,

“With photos being posted to social media and event images appearing in the local magazines, nobody wants to be seen in the same dress twice. As every girl knows, if you have a couple of weddings and a formal dinner or two to attend in a month, the cost of buying a dress for each event can add up very quickly. Designer dress rental has exploded across the UK and US in recent years because it allows you to look a million dollars without any buyer’s remorse.”

With high-end names like Amanda Wakeley, Christian Siriano and Alexander Wang, which are exclusive to Lotus, the boutique is moving dress rental away from the glitzy, school formal styles most dress hire stores are known for, into the mainstream, where fashion savvy women can find the perfect outfit for any occasion, whether it’s Ladies Day at the races, a friend’s wedding or a charity ball.

Bespoke Service

Bringing together the increasingly popular concept of consumer rental with the attentive service of a bridal boutique, Lotus makes hiring a dress a special experience for each and every client. Customers can check out the range of dresses on the boutique’s website, before making an appointment, where they are greeted with a glass of bubbly and given the run of the store to try on all the dresses they like.

Tamara continues,

“With the convenience of online shopping, we’ve forgotten how to enjoy one of life’s simplest pleasures – the shopping spree. We want to make going out and trying dresses on an experience again. We want girls to bring their friends, take their time and really enjoy wearing some of the biggest names in fashion.”

With wedding season just round the corner, now is the perfect time to pop in and pick the perfect dress. Be quick though as Lotus records what event each client attending so no-one ends up being seen in the same dress as anyone else.
