GLAM CORNER

GlamCorner is an online women’s fashion rental business that was founded in July 2012. From the start, the company set out on a mission to change the way Australian women access and consume fashion in today’s wear-and-discard status quo.

The company’s founders, husband and wife team Dean and Audrey, discovered that the average Australian woman only wears around one third of her wardrobe – with the remaining amount piling up in her closet or ending up in the landfill within a year of purchase. When Dean and Audrey realised that our societies’ wear-and-discard culture comes with such a detrimental cost to the environment, they decided to work on a solution so that garments can stay in circulation for as long as possible. It was at this moment that GlamCorner was born to build a solution that allows customers access to a constantly updated wardrobe of designer brand clothing at an affordable price point and without the burden of ownership.
