Wow

Are you willing to share?

By Ellen Fruchtman, President Like it or not, the “share economy” is here.  In fashion, it started with online companies like Rent the Runway and Bag, Borrow and Steal.  Now there is Tulerie, a rental company that allows people to borrow fashion and accessories from one another.
