Dress Collective (formerly Dressy Frock Hire) was born from the conclusion that one dress IS never enough.
After spending the last decade becoming a Mum and what seemed like a wedding every other weekend I had a wardrobe full of dresses that were literally only ever worn once, a) because my weight fluctuated with pregnancies, b) the dresses I wore to weddings had to be practical to accommodate a bump or feeding, so they weren’t overly stylish. Not only that, after those days were beyond me I was then on a journey to lose weight and despised spending hundreds on a dress that I didn’t intend on fitting in a few month’s time.
So with those memories on board and a wardrobe full of practically new dresses Dress Collective began in late 2015 and was, and still is, New Zealand’s first on trend dress rental destination catering for all special occasions for sizes 8-18 and 10-20 in our maternity range.
Nowadays all dresses are purchased new from all over the world and we currently we have over 300 dresses in our collection, ball gowns, bridesmaid dresses, nursing and maternity dresses are just some of the styles that make up the collection.
With such an extensive collection of dresses we really should be your go-to destination for your next special occasion.
Simply browse through our ever-growing collection and book your dress online or take advantage of our 5 day out of town try on service. Or feel free to make a time to come in and try a few dresses on by clicking the “Try On Service” button for your FREE 45 minute appointment.
We are located in Ashburton and deliver NZ wide.
So next time you have a special occasion, why not consider renting your next dress.
We look forward to dressing you!
