FREMANTLE WOMEN love a night out on the town, but the thought of finding a beautiful new dress can cause angst for many.
Louise Scanlan knows that feeling intimately.
“I could not find a classy, on trend, outfit in my price range for my birthday party,” she said.
“I wanted the party to be glamorous and I knew I needed the perfect dress to accompany the evening and most of my girlfriends were having the same problem.
“I wanted to it be easy and fun finding an outfit but I struggled.”
Her struggle to find the perfect dress gave Ms Scanlan a light bulb moment and a short time later, her designer dress hire store Ignite the Night opened its doors in Fremantle.
Ms Scanlan said she wanted to offer classy, affordable, beautiful dresses for all women.
“I don’t want anyone to feel held back from going to events like weddings, balls, dances, races, cocktail parties and events due to not being able to afford the most gorgeous outfit, or not having the time to drive all over Perth,” she said.
“The thought of missing out in my eyes is so sad as everyone deserves to feel and look like a princess any time.
“I have lovingly spent hours sourcing gorgeous pieces from designer brands such as Jadore, Elle Zeitoune, Natalie Rolt, Camilla, Portia and Scarlett, Prada, Sherri Hill, and Grace and Hart and I am here to help you with your next event, school ball or just so you feel gorgeous on a night out.”
