Citizens Of Style: Meet The Owner Of Goldie, Toronto’s Newest Garment Rental Company

At StyleDemocracy, we believe that everyone should be equipped with great style, and that’s why we’re introducing the Citizens Of Style. In this series, we’ll be tapping into the brains of friends and experts for their tips, tricks, and advice on all things beauty, fashion, retail, and shopping. 

When it comes to special occasions, the temptation to buy a new outfit is real. But it’s not always the best idea for our wallets, our closets, or the environment. Luckily over the past few years, the rental economy has been on the rise, and when it comes to pretty designer dresses, you’ve got options!

The latest rental company to hit the market is Goldie. Founded by Francesca Abony, Goldie aims to offer a more sustainable way to shop for special occasions and events, all the while making it easier to say no to fast fashion.

At Goldie you can find coveted cool girl brands like Reformation, Zimmerman, Emilio Pucci, Saint Laurent, Staud, We Are Kindred, and more. And not only in rentals, but resale, too. With Goldie, you can wear that outfit you’ve been eyeing for a fraction of regular retail price, and you can feel good abut doing it because you’re helping to reduce textile waste.

We had the opportunity to talk to find out more about Goldie from Francesca Abony herself. Take a peek at our interview with her in our video below.
