About Beyond the Runway Inc.

Beyond the Runway is Canada’s premiere designer dress and purse rental company that offers access to an unlimited closet via a monthly subscription service.


Located in Montreal which is considered to be the fashion capital of Canada, Beyond the Runway is owned 100% by founder Lucy Zhao who started the company in 2019.

Inspired by the successful stories of the sharing economy, Ms. Zhao had the idea to put her experience at work to offer Canadian women the opportunity to rent exclusive, high-end clothing and accessories instead of buying.

Beyond the Runway currently offers a subscription-based rental service, which is not currently being offered by many fashion rental companies considered to be competitors.

The online renting process is based on two membership plans and a one-time rental that give customers multiple options according to their needs and taste.

Silver Membership subscription allows to rent up to four items at once and includes one swap per month for another four items. Gold Membership subscription plan gives the subscriber access to rent up to four items at once and includes unlimited swap throughout the month. This package gives also access to two luxury items per month.
