We Are Ayrela

We believe in a world where you have total freedom to express yourself via the designs you love and the latest trends without harming the planet. In short: throwaway fashion is out; fashion leasing is in.

Ayrela is a leasing service for South Asian occasion wear. With Ayrela, members are able to effortlessly lease and lend their way through the wedding and party seasons using our smart, sustainable solution.


A typical garment undergoes several touchpoints that harm the planet in multiple ways. By simply prolonging the life cycle of each piece, we help offset damages to the environment. Just one extra use of a garment makes it more sustainable.


With Ayrela – it’s fabulously logical, it’s #fablease

The Story

Founded by Charmaine Dellow Meghjee, Ayrela offers a sustainable way to consume South Asian occasion wear without hurting the planet, or your bank account.

During the Covid-19 pandemic, the world slowed down and Charmaine found herself learning about the lifecycle of South Asian fashion via books, TV shows and online articles. She came across the concept of wardrobe leasing during this process and asked herself: why isn’t there a leasing service for quality South Asian clothes?

Charmaine is leading her team to build THE circular hub for South Asian fashion lovers, allowing users to unlock access to hundreds of unique pieces, without the one-wear guilt.

She believes leasing beautiful outfits can still be a magical experience that doesn’t detract from the big occasion, but gives customers a smart, practical, sustainable choice in how they consume that special outfit.

The Mission

To provide a smarter, circular option to indulge in the latest South Asian trends while being responsible and less wasteful.
