About Us

Runway Rentals was founded by Julia Nysse in 2019. 

Sidney Forde & Jessie Fraser took over the business in February 2021. 

In this decade many women buy a dress, wear it once, and then push it to the back of their wardrobes to make room for new ones. We wanted to look into a more sustainable and ethical way of fashion. You can now wear a different designer outfit for every occasion, without it costing the planet!

Seeing the demand of designer dress hire in New Zealand and discovering that Palmerston North has limited designer rental businesses, we decided it was a great investment.

Runway Rentals offers affordable rental designer wear throughout New Zealand. As well as an overnight tracked courier service, we also offer try ons which are based in Palmerston North. 

We have always had a love for fashion and are frequently inspired to keep up with the latest trends from many fashion idols. Our ambition is to be able to offer dresses to women of all sizes.

We love our home and take great pride in caring for the environment by using compostable courier bags. These bags can easily be composted at home or at commercial facilities.
