Onloan is a new generation fashion rental subscription service started by two friends with a shared interest in sustainable fashion.
The pair had very different careers before joining forces to launch their business. Tamsin started out in management consulting and always had a passion for sustainability while Natalie is a creative with experience in fashion retail, trend forecasting and blogging. A well-read piece on her blog, took her to a four-year position with Mario Testino, where she created his trend reports.
A “rental revolution” is sweeping through the UK right now with a number of start-ups springing up to capitalise on the opportunity. Ond one of the main USPs of Onloan is that it works directly with brand given them a rental opportunity alongside their sales channels. Kitri, Alexa Chung and Mother of Pearl are already part of the Onloan family.
