Cari’s Closet, the go-to luxury lend boutique in Malahide, hosted the official launch party of its new bigger store recently. Most girls dream of wearing designer dresses but many can never afford to.  Cari's Closet is a dress hire shop full of designer and vintage collectibles all for rent at just a fraction of the retail price. 

Born from a love of fashion, Cari’s Closet offer red carpet and occasion wear looks without the enormous price tag.  The concept is simple you borrow, wear and return the dress and the store takes care of alterations and cleaning! 

The spacious store was designed by the owner Lisa Duffy (named after her daughter Cari) with custom made fitting rooms and furnishings, ornate chandeliers and bespoke handmade seating.  Cari's Closet also sells dresses if you rent and then fall in love with a dress.  Brands offered to customers on hire include Herve Leger, Alexander McQueen, Roland Mouret, Badgley Mischka, DVF, Sass and Bide, Jovani, Sherri Hill and La Femme to name but a few.
