How This Founder Created The Airbnb Of High-End Fashion

Julia Gudish Krieger is jumping into the world of sharing homes and cars and adding her own twist to it—your wardrobe. Through her new up and coming company, VillageLuxe, women can now “borrow” other women’s designer and high-end clothing through the touch of a button. Inspired by companies such as Airbnb and Uber, which allows people to utilize their personal homes and cars for a little extra cash, Krieger is hoping this puts a new twist on a modern trend.

Key Takeaways:

  • Julia Gudish Krieger is making it possible with her New York City-based startup.
  • Referred to as the Airbnb of high-end fashion.
  • VillageLuxe allows women to borrow designer clothing, shoes and accessories directly from other women.

“Anyone who has used the cost-per-wear theory to justify a coveted fashion purchase just got something better — let’s call it a cost-per-rent theory — which allows you to have your Louboutins and rent them too.”
