Loving Preloved for Prom

Needed for prom: One great dress.
Not needed for prom: Stress that someone else will be wearing that same great dress.
Solution: Preloved clothing, 881 Queen St. W.

Canadian clothing brand Preloved is celebrating its 14th year of weaving together recycled skirts, shirts and pants into very cool and totally one-of-a-kind pieces. Just because they’re recycled, though, doesn’t mean they’re casual. Some of the dresses here – like the ’60s inspired Kiki cocktail dress and the easy, strapless Sophie – are totally prom-appropriate and absolutely adorable.

Check out the online boutique at www.preloved.ca, with shipping to anywhere in Canada. And watch for a new line of cool recycled items for your home, too, with the just-launched Preloved at Home.
