More about Dressr
Meet Dressr, the force behind the fashion rental revolution in Europe.
50+ conscious fashion brands, 850+ beautiful styles, and one rental platform - that’s our way of contributing to a more sustainable future of fashion.
Dressr was founded in 2019 by Caroline Cecile Baeten with the goal of finding more sustainable ways to enjoy beautiful, consciously-made pieces. Following her own transition from sales seeker to conscious consumer, Caroline started Dressr to make this journey easier, more enjoyable and more accessible at a large scale. Fast-forward 3 years, Dressr now works with more than 50+ brands and a fast-growing rental community that form a circular fashion ecosystem.
Since our inception, Dressr has built an impressive proposition and platform that creates a win-win for renters and local, sustainable brands. Members get to enjoy the freedom of a seemingly-unlimited wardrobe without the cost, ecological impact and hassle of ownership. And brands get a helping hand to reduce their footprint, receive valuable quality & rental data on their products and get remunerated for every item rented.
From personal styling sessions to keynote speeches and workshops for local businesses, the Dressr team is active on all fronts promoting rental as a better, more sustainable way to enjoy the beauty of fashion.
Dressr is a multidisciplinary team of fashion enthusiasts, sustainability advocates and digital experts, powering the rental revolution together.

Dressr plays its part in the future of fashion by unlocking the sustainability benefits of rental for brands and fashion enthusiasts. To us, ‘sustainable’ in fashion is about improving garment quality, minimizing waste, solving overstock issues and maximizing use-per-garment. Designer rental with Dressr ticks all of these boxes. All brands on the Dressr platform are carefully selected so our renters can be confident they’re always shopping with sustainability in mind.
Whether you rent with a membership or just once for a special occasion, the ecological impact is fundamentally different compared to traditional purchasing. In a research collaboration with the independent Flemish research organization VITO, we demonstrated that items rented on Dressr had significantly higher use-per-garment than traditionally purchased items. Many of our members, like Helena, also stop adding new clothes to their wardrobe altogether after joining Dressr, which decreases the demand for new item production.
Through Dressr’s one-time-rental option, renting instead of purchasing occasionwear leads to big sustainability wins for fashion. Annually, millions of items are bought for weddings, events, and holidays and only worn once, creating a massive pollution and waste footprint. Renting makes the purchase and production of these items obsolete.
The Dressr Showroom is open by appoinment on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday between 1PM and 5PM.
Curious about that new item from your favourite brand? Or want some styling support from an expert? Join us in our showroom in Mortsel for an engaging fashion experience. And follow along on Instagram to be the first to know about special events.
We look forward to your visit!
