Preloved Recycled Vintage Couture
I found out there is a Canadian fashion house called 'Preloved.' Their work is centred around changing vintage clothing. Using something old and turning this into something new. Neighbours at Designers & Agents continued to recycle their clothes, which consisted of 60,000 sweaters, 12,000 t-shirts, 5,000 dresses and 6,000 trench coats.
A fire broke out this year in Toronoto's Queen Street West earlier this year, which ruined the company's flagship store, along with many other businesses. However, Preloved refused to be put down by this unfortunate event and showcased a large number of unique innovative styles for their Fall collection at L'Oreal Fashion Week. They also presented a opening for their new boutique that is habitually for selling recycled vintage fashion in organic tissues and biodegradable shopping bags.
