Rent the Runway knows that a slew of Fashion Week photo-ops are fast approaching, so they're setting up a pop-up closet inside four W Hotel locations. The website has curated a selection of designer ready-to-wear and accessories that will be rentable at the W Union Square, W Times Square, W New York, and W Downtown starting tomorrow (just in time for Fashion's Night Out) and through September 13th (for when you've officially run out of your own things to wear).
Each of the four locations will be open to the public and hotel guests, and the collections at each will be geared toward the hotel's neighborhood. For example, the two downtown locations will carry Opening Ceremony, Yigal Azrouël, and Erin Fetherston, whereas the two uptown closets will be filled with Versace, Vera Wang, and Badgley Mischka.
If you just so happen to be staying in one of the hotels' executive suites, you'll receive one complementary dress and accessory rental, and all hotel guests will get 50% off and free same-day or next-day shipping options. If you're not a hotel guest, don't worry—you can cash in on a 20% off rental discount. Head here for more details.
