Buy and Borrow Luxury Fashion

How It Works

MY WARDROBE HQ is a fashion rental platform with a difference - we manage the rental process on behalf of the vendor and the lender. Fashion rental is relatively new to the UK and we have listened to those of you who came to our focus groups and put trust and security first. We want to make sure that every one of you has a positive experience so that renting an item is done in a secure and timely manner: you get what you want, when you want it, and you get the item back to rent out again.

MWHQ is a trusted community of fashion lovers who appreciate beautiful things and want to be part of a world of shared values.

Here’s how we’re doing it...

  1. Only users granted an access code can have access to the platform. You only need to use it once, as long as you register when you visit, you can then just log in as you would do on any other website.
  2. If you want to rent or buy anything, you will need to register for Shieldpay, our trusted payment provider. Shieldpay checks your address and identity across a number of databases to ensure that you are who you say you are, and you live at the address you have provided. It is NOT a credit check, simply an ID check. Don’t worry if Shieldpay can’t verify you; it might be because you haven’t lived at your address long enough. Customer Services will contact you and go through the process with you should they need further information.
  3. Once you have registered, you can use Shieldpay on a ‘Pay as You Go’ basis where a deposit is taken when you rent an item and returned back to you at the end of the rental period when the item is returned. Alternatively, you can become a MWHQ member by paying £9.99 per month (you can cancel at any time) and no deposit is required. You must have funds on your card to pay the ‘buy’ price should you decide not to return an item. Membership also allows you to rent multiple items in one go and place orders by the phone.

What do you get in return?

  1. Every item you see is managed by MWHQ – meaning items will always arrive on time and in cleaned and pristine condition. 
  2. We have partnered with luxury storage facility to ensure items are stored in a temperature-controlled environment and catalogued in a secure and organised way – think of Cher’s digital wardrobe in Clueless and you get the picture!
  3. In the event that you don’t wear the rented items, you will receive a credit note for the full rental amount.
  4. Fuss-free returns process: just pop your item back in the pre-paid return’s envelope.
  5. Authentic designer items that are checked by our experienced in-house team.
  6. As we manage everything on behalf of the lender and the renter, in the unlikely event of a dispute, we are an independent and fair arbitrator.
