Photoshoot in need of some style?

Fashion show coming up?

We’d love to help.

Here at Duchess, we are all about supporting small, local businesses! Even though we no longer carry off-the-rack items, we do have plenty of samples that we are happy to loan out. Kindly read through our FAQ section below before submitting an inquiry and we will respond as promptly as possible!


Q: What items can you loan out?

This is a tricky question! Our current inventory of samples is constantly rotating; we generally have a good number of shirts, and often have a wide array of suiting separates such as jackets, vests and trousers. Please note that we very seldom have a full ensemble available as our samples are acquired through clients and are not ready-made. Fear not! We see stylists cobble together lovely outfits all the time, so if you are willing to be flexible, we can certainly find something dashing for your event.


Q: What is a “sample” garment?

Excellent question! Unlike off-the-rack (or, “OTR”) garments, samples are garments that are made specifically for one person and their exact measurements. Because people are all shapes and sizes of amazing, this means our sample garments may not fit quite as perfectly on somebody that it wasn’t made for. A good stylist is familiar with this concept, and prepared to use pins/clips to style the garments to fit just right.


Q: How much does it cost to borrow items?

We believe small businesses should support one another out of love, not profit. We are happy to donate our time to oversee model fittings and pull samples and assist in styling however we can! We ask only a small cleaning fee for garments worn by models.

Q: Do you have women’s samples to loan?

Why YES, we do! In fact, we are constantly striving to diversify our exposure in the suiting industry—so much that our own female-identifying staff members have loaned out their own personal garments on many occasions! We want to be sure that everybody can get equal representation in media, particularly in the wedding industry.
