Rent the Runway, a growing fashion company that provides designer dress and accessory rentals at a fraction of the cost of purchasing, is using Samsung in-store digital signage technology to upend conventional ideas about fashion retailing.

Best known for launching and rapidly growing their service online, Rent the Runway also has brick-and-mortar locations — the biggest of them a 4,000 square-foot flagship store in the heart of New York City’s Flatiron District. Opened in December 2016, the W. 15th Street store uses a variety of Samsung in-store signage displays to boost the customer experience. A 3-by-3 feature video wall, using Samsung 46-inch narrow bezel displays, greets customers and runs HD video that shows their peers — not just models and mannequins — wearing the kind of high fashion clothing available at Rent the Runway.

The main area has 32-inch Samsung touch-screen tandem displays that enable women to view some 200,000 potential wardrobe options — an infinite virtual closet in the cloud. There are also Samsung mirror displays that send playful, positive messages to women as they consider their potential selections.
