Borrowed by Design is an online platform for renting and selling women's formalwear that directly benefits our non-profit network. Our mission is to erase homelessness, rape, drug abuse and adverse situations for young women and girls. Every dress, every girl.

Our platform works by encouraging individual women, fashion designers and boutiques to list their dress for sale or rent and to pledge at least 10% of their proceeds to one of our non-profits. Of course, they can pledge up to 100% if they choose. Additionally, non-profits can use our site as a fundraising mechanism by hosting virtual dress drives among their donor base where a higher percentage of funds will go directly to their programs.

On a consumer level, we connect individual women with dresses, fashion designers and boutiques to leverage a mass quantity of dresses that women can enjoy at a fraction of retail price. BBD provides secure payment and email communication, individual closets to feature an owners inventory and shipping automation. We perform all of these basic functions in addition to letting the consumer into the lives and stories of the young women we are helping. They can see a direct impact from the money they spend on the site being used toward our mission and the non-profits we work with.
