As a stylist, long ago, I found shoes to be the most difficult element to secure for my jobs. The budgets never seemed to allow for multiple options from Studio Services. If I went to borrow from showrooms, the shoes were often out of date, mis-sized or dirty~simply a total embarrassment to present to the talent.

Soon I realized that all my stylist friends and their assistants were having the same challenges. It occurred to me that I needed to create a showroom strictly dedicated to shoes, jewelry and other accessories to answer the needs of New York’s Styling Industry.

In 1995, with a dream and maxed out credit cards, Montana Rader Ltd. was established.

Word spread and LA Stylists started requesting a “West Coast MO”. In order to aid the fashion, film and television industry Montana Rader Los Angeles opened in West Hollywood. Whether in need of the perfect men’s tuxedo shoe, a killer pump, a stellar clutch or the grandest statement necklace for that cover shot, MO•LA and MO•NY are your premiere rental resource destinations.

While I am a fan of vintage you won’t find any here. Nor do I shop at sample sales or partner with consignment. I am continuously shopping, exhaustively, for the newest and most complementary shoes. Our “kids” are kept in pristine condition so your client regards you as the brilliant stylist you truly are!

Less prep time, obtaining spectacular selections within your budget in an atmosphere of calm elegance, laughter and chocolate is how we work on both coasts. Whether you are working on a commercial, tv pilot, photo shoot, e-commerce or red carpet event #Moknows.
