Through twitter I discovered Magnifeco; 'the daily eco-fashion blog featuring gorgeous products that are fair-trade, recycled, reusable, sustainable, organic, and/or vegan'.

Magnifeco tweeted link to a blog post referring to Canadian fashion designer Preloved. Preloved creates beautiful one of a kind clothing from reclaimed vintage fabrics.

Some of my favourites:

Izar Dress $198 CAD

Charming, classy and utterly timeless dress with a slightly exaggerated a-line silhouette, delicate boat-neck across the front, adjustable straps at the back and original pockets. It’s as perfect for lunching with the ladies as it is for cocktailing. Constructed from 2 reclaimed trench coats.

Julietta Dress $159 CAD

Dishy A-line halter dress with angular seaming and original button placket detailing. Constructed from 4 reclaimed cotton dress shirts.

I have selected both of these dresses from Preloved's online boutique, however there are three Preloved stores in Canada, and retail outlets that stock Preloved clothing all over the world.
