Shopwatch: Frock n Fabulous

Have you ever needed a show stopping dress for a wedding or black tie event or a fancy hat for the races but you simply can’t justify buying one?

Fear not because Frock n Fabulous has arrived. It’s an online dress and hat rental shop, which also has a shop in Dundrum where you can check out the pieces for yourself.  Similar to Covet in Dublin and Cari’s Closet in Malahide, Frock n Fabulous lets you rent designer dresses and hats for special occasions.

What I love most about Frock n Fabulous is that it offers hat rentals from top Irish Milliners – FINALLY the savvy shopping solution for race-goers and wedding guests that we’ve been crying out for.

Two of my favourite Irish milliners are stocked here– Galway Races Best Hat winner Aisling Ahern and Fiona Mangan (which I wore to Galway Races last year).  But it doesn’t stop there.  Sarah McGahon (Amy Huberman wore one of her hats to the Royal Wedding), Edel Staunton and Jennifer Wrynne are also gracing the shelves of the shop where prices start at €30 for a 3 day hat rental.

Dresses for rent include Irish designers Jennifer Rothwell and Sarah O’ Neill which sit alongside black tie show stoppers from Rachel Gilbert, Jovani, Temperly London, Roberto Cavalli, Jenny Packham, BCBG and Marchesa, amongst others –  (dress rental costs from €70 for a 3 day rental and €140 to rent a dress from Rachel Gilbert for the same period),

The occasion wear haven is located at Dundrum Station House, just at the Dundrum Luas stop. Open Thursday and Friday’s 9:30am- 9:00pm, Saturday’s 12pm – 5pm. Private appointments on request.

P.S Speaking of hats and the races… I’ll be style spotting for Leopardstown Racecourse at this year’s Tatler Mount Juliet Best Dressed competition on Lexus Chase Day on the 28th December! Look out for me and my camera to get papped for our Street Chic pages. Excited much? I definitely am!
