CHELSEA—Renting is definitely the new owning: Suddenly, everyone keeps emailing us about companies that loan out luxury goods. One such lender, e-tailer Wear Today Gone Tomorrow, is attempting to inject some glamor into the user-friendly concept by hosting a runway show this Wednesday. At the Savvy space at 145 West 18th Street, models will show off WTGT clothing from designers like Vera Wang, Nina Ricci, and Hervé Léger. None of the looks will be available on the spot, but if you see something you like, you'll be able to order it online from the program after the show—something most of us can't exactly do after a Fashion Week event. The event is open to the public; go to co-sponsor The Vogue City for tickets. [Racked Inbox]
