About

RAGFAiR is an absolutely revolutionary and sustainable way of shopping: you rent the clothing instead of buying it. RAGFAiR is an online shop platform where you can find a huge variety of clothing, shoes and accessories. You could rent anything that you like, wear and return it by mail. We carefully selected each product and can offer you trendy brands and rare vintage fashion. Additionally, we collaborate with young designers from all over the world.  

You can choose products for any occasion: comfortably hanging out with your friends, a romantic evening or formal business lunch. You can always find appropriate dress on RAGFAiR. We have products of different sizes from smallest to largest and plan to add a men’s collection.  

Once you have signed up for our service and provided your payment details, you can easily order the clothing you like within a couple of clicks.

Revolutionize the way of shopping by offering a great fashion experience without limitations and in a sustainable way.  

Rent your styles, show your personality, be yourself!

The idea for this project came from the experience of living in Switzerland. A good choice of international brands or young designers is not available in every Swiss town. Also, it is not so easy to buy something exclusive, good quality and different from everybody else, sometimes you simply can't afford it. In contrast, the retail fashion market is overloaded and mass consumption grows every day. If you look around the streets, you will find the typical look from well-known average priced brands and no individual style. Now all products look quite similar and have moderate quality, so that we wear them for short period of time and throw them away.

Another concern is that sometimes we buy certain pieces and put them on only once, for a special occasion and afterwards it stays in the wardrobe for ages. For some other clothing, it would be great to try it out, wear it for some time first before ordering to be sure that it feels good and fits right.  

We have a solution for all these situations: with RAGFAiR no need to overload your wardrobe, spent a lot and you can try some items first and buy them only after you are sure it’s “the one”.

Sign up on the RAGFAiR marketplace, browse and select the clothes you like. We could help you to find the best fit. Once you clicked to order, you will receive your clothing within 2 days. The service is to rent, wear and return. You do not need to worry about mailing, cleaning or any thing else. We will take care of it for you.

You have two different options of service:

Register for a subscription to rent three items every two weeks. You could choose one or two things and we can get you the third item in the same style.

For two weeks you could enjoy and wear the garments as much as you like. Combine it with your own clothes and get different look every day or wear with other things from your package.

In two weeks send the clothing back in the same box and select three new things to wear for the next two weeks.

Browse and select your favorite item for an upcoming event. Order as many items as you want, we will charge you per item.

Try it on, enjoy wearing it and look great on that special day. In 4 days, just send it back in the same box.

RAGFAiR has solutions for different problems we all face from time to time:

The world of fashion is exciting and glamorous, but its impact on the environment is worsening day by day. Fashion manufacturing consumes vast amounts of water and chemicals, and pollutes the atmosphere with harmful volatile agents. This has a tremendous impact on our environment.

Our service suggests reusing clothing and helping to decrease mass production and consumption. The brands that will opt to be on our platform could consciously choose to provide another alternative way for shopping and disposal of their garments. Moreover, collaborating with us they could take responsibility for the entire lifecycle of their products and also check how long lasting are their clothes in quality and style. RAGFAiR business concept encourages new ways of sustainable fashion consumption and helps to avoid aimless shopping and overloading of the wardrobes. For all worn items we have a recycling solution.

By backing this project you can benefit from using beautiful high-quality products and feel great about opting for sustainable fashion.

We own all our stock and we seek to offer like-new quality to our customers. We carefully handle each piece between the rents, provide best quality cleaning and repairing. Depending on the item, there is a special antibacterial, exceptionally hygienic cleaning service to allow multiple usage of the clothing.  
Our stock mainly comes from:
There are other ways you can help the RAGFAiR campaign aside from financial support. You can spread the word in your network, like us on Facebook, or best of all forward a link to this campaign to people you think might be interested. Anything you can do to help us reach a bigger audience, including using the Kickstarter share tools, would be much appreciated.


We already have a very detailed plan. The RAGFAiR marketing strategy includes an effective promotional campaign directed at the target audience. We will have enough stock for each size. We managed to arrange with some of the suppliers special conditions to purchase our stock only after the order of our customers. We will provide high quality cleaning of all garments. We partner with an atelier mending damaged items and will charge the full retail price for destroyed garments. Moreover, our rules include a penalty system for late returns. Thanks to our diverse experience and knowledge, we are fully prepared to face different challenges that might come up on our way.
