Designer Wardrobe was brought to life with both our community in our hearts and our planet front and centre.
We're proud to provide a platform that supports our members in leading a more mindful way of life by giving them a place to buy and sell pre-loved items or rent something they might otherwise only wear once.
We're not perfect, but we're committed to doing our part to bring about circularity and tread lightly on the planet we call home.
Watch this space - exciting things are happening behind the scenes.
Reusable fabric courier bags
In 2021 we revolutionised the way we send and receive rentals with the launch of our custom-made reusable courier bags. These durable nylon bags are used on repeat, preventing thousands of single-use plastic bags from finding their way to landfill every year. They safely pack and deliver over 90% of our rentals, with the remainder being sent in compostable courier bags.Read more +
Squeaky clean drycleaning partner
An important part of our journey has always been finding partners who share our values, so we've teamed up with Regal to ensure that the 5% of our rentals that are "dry clean only" receive the specialist care they need to last.Read more +

Repair & resell
We're 100% committed to extending the life of our rental garments through gentle treatment and washing practices. We encourage our members to treat each piece with love as if it was their own.Read more +
We pride ourselves on taking extra special care of our rentals to ensure they're able to be loved for longer. As part of our garment care process, we've invested in top-quality commercial washing machines from Miele, which enable us to gently, yet efficiently clean many of our beautiful rentals in-house. Their innovative machines are gentler on garments, kinder to our planet and deliver a perfectly fresh finish, every time.Read more +
Education & Empowerment
While we've made some significant progress on our journey, we acknowledge that there will always be room to grow and evolve. We're committed to staying abreast of the ever-changing world of sustainability and implementing changes for the better as we go. With support from the knowledgeable team at Go Well, we're excited to use our voice to inspire, educate and empower our wonderful community to live more mindfully.
"The world is changing around us. People are becoming much more mindful of their
environmental footprint and the damage that's already been done. We're excited to
be a part of the solution in the shift towards building a circular economy"
