(Relaxnews) – Fashionistas and business travelers with jetset itineraries and no time — or inclination– to pack are being offered a variety of concierge services that will pack their suitcases for them.
It’s perhaps the least liked part of going on vacation: choosing outfits, packing, and unpacking. But a slew of lifestyle concierge services are available to help globetrotters shave off the time and hassle of emptying and refilling their closets, spots trade publication Travel Trade Gazette.
In the US, Garde Robe — which counts Ivanka Trump as a member — offers what it calls a ‘luggage-free valet’ service that will store, pack, and hand-deliver or courier suitcases to clients at the airport, hotel room or other destination.
Items left with Garde Robe in their “climate-controlled, air-purified loft” are photographed and catalogued in a Cyber Closet allowing clients to select the items they want delivered.
The service is pitched for multiple homeowners and those who may ski in Aspen one year, and Switzerland the next, says the company.
In the UK, stylists at Wardrobe Mistress will edit their clients’ wardrobes to pick the best outfits for their travel needs and pack each item professionally in tissue paper to make sure that clothes arrive crease-free.
London-based Vault Couture will likewise digitally archive the entire contents of a client’s closet so that instead of having to go through a mental list of their wardrobe , members can view their clothes online and create outfits destined for their upcoming beach holiday, or weekend city break.
The company will then collect the outfits, pack them professionally and send them to any global destination.
Luxury concierge service The Bidwell Group in New Jersey offers similar services that will store off-season clothing, footwear and accessories in “museum-quality” preservation conditions, pack, and ship luggage around the world.
