    Every year over 9 million women spend over $2B on bridesmaid dresses they won't wear again. Union Station, located in the heart of New York Cities garment district, is the worlds leading online bridesmaids dress rental platform. Union Station's U.S based manufacturing process allows brides to outfit their wedding parties at a fraction of the cost of a traditional brick and mortar dress retailer. In order to produce designer quality pieces at scale, Union Station leverages a modern on demand manufacturing and logistics platform to expedite the order, delivery, return, and processing of thousands of dresses per month.

    At a high level, Union Station is poised to disrupt a $2B segment of the $50B Wedding industry. Long term, Union Station is perfecting its on-demand manufacturing and rental platform to apply it to the wider clothing market. Our investors include Index Ventures, Simon Venture Group and Andreessen Horowitz.

    Union Station (formerly Little Borrowed Dress) was founded in 2011 by Corie Hardee. After having to go through the hassle of having to spend an exorbitant amount of money on a dress she would never wear again (again), Corie knew there was a better way. Since then, we've been working to provide brides and bridesmaids with a low-stress, affordable alternative to the high-pressure, expensive world of traditional wedding retail.
