Get the Look: Sporty Chic
Rent the Runway Team
By: Houston Scott C’2014
What if women could have access to a dream closet:
a new dress for every occasion, without actually buying
them? In 2009 Jennifer Hyman and Jennifer Fleiss
launched a company called Rent the Runway in New
York City. Rent the Runway is designed for women who
want to look glamorous without breaking the bank.
The company allows its consumers to rent high-end
designer dresses and accessories for a four to eight day
period from renttherunway.com. Rent the Runway is
a vehicle for fashionistas to have access to their dream
closet on a modest (college student) budget. Rent the
Runway provides access to over 165 high-end fashion
name brands for a fraction of the retail price.
Rent the Runway has been called the “Netflix of
fashion” and has been mentioned in major publications
such as Cosmopolitan, The New York Times, Forbes
Magazine, Style.com, CNN, WWD, Teen Vogue,
Seventeen, The Today Show, Bloomberg, and The Wall
Street Journal. So far over 3 million women have signed
up for access.
During a trip home, one of the co-founders, Jennifer
Hyman, saw her sister struggling with “a closet full of
clothes, but nothing to wear.” Hyman’s sister wanted to
wear something from the red carpet, but had shallow
pockets. At that moment Hyman decided to find a
way for every woman to be able to have a Cinderella
They created a company to fill the needs of women
who know and love high fashion, but cannot afford the
designer prices. Hyman and Fleiss have created and
maintained exclusive relationships with top designers,
and therefore are able to continually update inventory
with the latest designer pieces.
Rent the Runway has college rep teams on campuses
around the country under their Campus Girl branch of
the company. For the first time, Spelman College has a
Rent the Runway team. The rep team intern members
are comprised of two managers, a blogger, a social media
representative, an event coordinator, a public relations
representative, two marketing representatives, and a
The college rep team is an amazing fashion
internship that provides insight into the fashion
industry and working experience. Spelmans Rent the
Runway team plans to host several events and constantly
advertise the rental experience to its students.

Sporty Chic, or sometimes referred to as Athletic Luxe is the most popular look of the moment. This style
incorporates very sexy feminine aspects of fashion fused with work out and athletic gear, or national sports
paraphernalia. Singer and actress Teyana Taylor rocked this sexy tomboy look for years, before it was commercialized.
Now numerous fashion influentials are giving the tomboy glamorous style meaning and visibility. Singers Rihanna
and Rita Ora display great examples of the style in the media. Beyonce’s February 2013 GQ Magazine cover and
spread is another affirmation of style having validity in the fashion realm of daily life.
