about preloved profile | bios | press


Preloved creates one of a kind clothing from reclaimed vintage fabrics. Our passion is design and our philosophy is sustainability. Attention to fit, comfort and style has been our driving force.

Founder Julia Grieve and Creative Director Peter Friesen have made their mark on fashionable Queen Street West in Toronto, Boulevard St. Laurent in Montreal, Sydney Australia and our latest venture - a pop up shop on the Danforth. Preloved has expanded into the wholesale market worldwide. Our designs are carried in stores across North America, Australia, Europe and Japan. We have also proudly reopened our flagship store further west on Queen Street West in Toronto, after the original location was lost to a massive street fire in February 2008. The plans for retail expansion are on the horizons for preloved - look out for more preloved locations popping up soon!

Devotees of Preloved include models, actors and musicians such as Julia Roberts, Kirsten Dunst, Angela Lindvall, Hillary Duff, Maria Menounos, Anne Hathaway, Christine Horne, Kate Hudson and Daria Werbowy.

Preloved has recently launched a few new collections including; a home line, accessories line and an uber cute childrens line called me*me. These collections have helped us further reduce our carbon footprint by allowing us to use up most of the remnants leftover from our fall 2010 collection.
