Mommshies, we know that buying formal dresses from department stores and most especially from known fashion designers can cost an arm and a leg. And after the special event, chances are you will never use it again and it stays in your closet for good. So, your best option would be to rent. And here in Metro Manila, there is a shop that might be the solution to your problem.

At the heart of Makati City is a one-stop-rental shop which caters to a big clientele. Damsel has over 5,000 items to choose from like gowns, costumes, shoes, accessories, suits, barongs, styling backdrops, furniture, and more. Said to be the biggest gowns for rent (GFR) shop in Metro Manila, it also offers services like made to order, made to rent, ready to rent, dry clean and press, as well as alteration and repair.

From its 4 sq.m original location at the lower ground of Makati Cinema Square, Damsel’s 300 sq.m flagship store is now at the 2nd floor with a much bigger space for customers. From its inception since 2010, Damsel has gone a long way.

Sure there are other GFR shops in the metro but why choose Damsel? Let me count the ways.

Damsel’s first and foremost concern is hygiene. All their items are guaranteed fresh, clean and odor free as they dry clean the apparels first before delivery or pick-up. They have the most extensive designs in town be it unique, modern or retro. Any themed party you need to attend to, Damsel has the answer.

Damsel uses quality materials imported from the US, Thailand, Korea, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia, China and the Middle East. Owner and lawyer turned fashion designer Dada Orquillo put up Damsel out of her sheer love for design. “Most of the items at Damsel, I created myself. Whenever I feel stressed from the legalities of my work, I pick up my pencil and draw”, she said. “All items here are tastefully designed and crafted up to the smallest detail so rest assured that it will be worth your money”, Dada guarantees.

Also, no need to worry about store hours as they have an online 24/7 customer assist to answer all queries. You don’t have to go out to beat the traffic as items can be delivered right in your doorsteps. Best of all, they have the most affordable rates for as low as P500.

Damsel has wide lounges and large fitting rooms which is a very important aspect in every store as the connection with the customers (and serving them well) reflects here. Able and knowledgeable styling assistants (which Dansel has) who can tell the clients the right size and color for them will definitely make a difference between making the sale and losing it.

But wait Mommshies, there’s more! Aside from the gowns, costumes, men and kids’ clothing, Damsel has wedding rental packages (inclusive of dry clean fees) as well as promos and packages for hair and make-up done by professional artists.

Damsel’s commissary and first branch is in Pandi, Bulacan and it is now open to franchisees.
