Copy of About Us
Atelier Privé is a high-end lending service specializing in designer dresses. We offer our clients the opportunity to borrow dresses from our carefully curated line-up of designer dresses for a fraction of their retail price. Our collection ranges from a classic black dress to a statement gown. We carry sought after brands that are often not sold in Montreal.
How we work:
We are by appointment only in order to ensure that our clients are given the time and attention needed to choose the right dress that best fits their figure, occasion and personal taste. Our showroom is located at 873 Hodge Street in Montreal.
The rental period is for three days and can be extended to accommodate our client's needs. Pick up your dress the day before your event and return the dress the day after.
You flaunt it, return it and we take care of the dry-cleaning after every rental. We also offer a courier service to take the hassle out of returning the dress.
Although Montreal is home to many fashion designers, finding nice dresses for our year round events was always a daunting task. With the growth of social media, re-wearing a dress has become less and less desirable. Olivia Maicas & Rachel Ohayon, the founders of Atelier Privé ("AP"), felt that there was a need for a rental service which offered a wide variety of high-end designer dresses, in all sizes, at an affordable price. From there came their vision to start AP.
Olivia and Rachel are best friends from birth who both share a love for fashion and business. Since launching AP in Spring 2016, the positive response has been overwhelming. They continue to seek out new up and coming designers, expand their product offerings and continue to grow their collection of dresses. In Spring 2017, AP will also be launching a wedding dress division, which will allow brides-to-be the opportunity to purchase or rent consigned luxury wedding gowns at a fraction of their retail prices.
