WHAT TO DO WITH YOUR FUGLY BRIDESMAID DRESS

A Canadian designer helps to give your maids frock new life

If the movie 27 Dresses hit a little too close to home, why not turn your collection of bridesmaid dresses into someone else’s prom dream? Canadian designer Rachel Sin and the Ottawa-based not-for-profit Fairy Godmother Inc., are teaming up to do just that. Rachel Sin will be reworking five frocks, taking them from used to unique. With the abundance of bridesmaids dresses that never see the light of day, let alone a dance floor, ever again, this program allows less privileged teens a chance to dazzle on their big night.

The Ottawa-based Fairy Godmother Inc., accepts donations at Browns Cleaners, also welcoming shoes, purses and jewelry. With another group in Vancouver, it seems this trend is certainly catching on! So why not free up some closet space and share the wealth? Your Cinderella, and your dress, will thank you!
