Below we list our top three Adelaide dress hire designers to be seen in at the Adelaide Fashion festival this year:

Acler Dress Hire in Adelaide

Designer fashion label Acler showcases a penchant for drama, making a statement with premium clothing that rival works of art. Interested in sartorial oxymorons, co-designers Kathryn Forth and Julia Ritorto seek to carve out an inimitable place in your wardrobe by blending oppositional themes seamlessly, unifying the angular with the commodious in order to push the boundaries of feminine aesthetics.

Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, the brand offers limitless sartorial potential in their bespoke collection: from feminine dresses with on-trend micro florals and work blouses featuring puffed shoulders, to classic charcoal houndstooth pants and contemporary statement skirts.

Acler lifts classic silhouettes and breathe them to life, whether it’s by adorning quintessential high-waisted, pencil-fit skirts with exaggerated O-rings inlaid through the front, or by not shying away from the marigold yellow floral jacquard patterns on their one-shouldered bodices. Their high-end designs are sure to lend contemporary austerity to your semi-formal edits, guiding you through the work week out of formal office meetings and into Friday night soirées.

With price points starting from $500 onwards our tip is to dress hire Adelaide this designer via the Style Theory wardrobe. Not only are you saving dollars – you’re also supporting the circular fashion movement.

 Bec & Bridge Dress Hire Adelaide

Founded by Becky Cooper and Bridge Yorston in 2003, Bec & Bridge is a Sydney-based brand that was born as a denim line before expanding into womenswear. The chic duo met on their first day studying a Bachelor of Design in Fashion and Textiles at the University of Technology, Sydney, starting out as close friends who would work on assignments together. The pair graduated from their degrees with honours and were invited by Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia to exhibit as part of the New Generation show in 2004, which was warmly welcomed by buyers. Shortly after, the label was stocked in numerous, chic boutiques across the country. But as we always say at Style Theory why buy when you can rent? Our collection of Bec and Bridge dresses are available to dress hire in Adelaide at the click of a button.

The brand’s strong design aesthetic has gained them a following that included Jennifer Hawkins, Miranda Kerr, Vanessa Hudgens and Kim Kardashian. 

Rebecca Vallance Adelaide Dress Hire

Launching in 2012, womenswear designer Rebecca Vallance founded her eponymous label to create for the woman who wants to be noticed. Since the label’s inception, she has gained critical acclaim in the European fashion sphere, and currently the designer splits her time between London and Sydney, imbuing her collections with an international air.

With over 20 Rebecca Vallance Dress Hire Adelaide options to rent at Style Theory – we have you covered should you want to rock a mini or a ball gown. Rebecca describes her current range as “classics with a twist”, and expertly re-interprets traditional silhouettes for the modern woman. Proving to be the perfect blend of directional and classic, her designs are a subtle play in contrasts, balancing fluid lines and structure. The slate grey and jewel toned colour palette gives the pieces a richness and sense of luxury that draw the eye.

Quickly gaining a devoted celebrity following, the label’s boldly feminine pieces are made to flatter the figure. Her signature lace dresses feature fluted sleeves, exaggerated hems and intricate bodices. Fit and flare shapes are the feminine feature pieces that stand out as sophisticated centrepieces of contemporary office wear.  Innovation and quality are at the heart of Vallance’s ethos, guiding her designs.
