Top designers showcased couture made of Cashmere Bathroom Tissue in support of the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.
The annual White Cashmere Collection fashion show turned the big 1-0 this year and the celebration was bigger and better than ever. The chic event took place at the Art Gallery of Ontario on September 25th with a stunning runway complete with crystal chandeliers and its traditional white and pink theme.
The show featured 20 of Canada’s top designers, including Lucian Matis, Carlie Wong and David Dixon, just to name a few. Beverly Thomson, a breast cancer survivor and co-host of Canada AM, returned as host of the show, and it was an event full of fabulous fashion and words of inspiration. As part of the 10-year celebration, the show opened up with a blast from the past, including various designs from previous collections.
All the pieces are made of 100% pure and soft Cashmere Bathroom Tissue, in white and pink. The limited edition Pink Cashmere BT was created by Kruger Products in support of the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. Twenty-five cents from each sale goes directly to the Foundation throughout October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This year’s show also introduced Cashmere UltraLuxe, its newest, most luxurious product yet.
The curator of the show, Farley Chatto, had a lot on his plate this year. In addition to artistic direction, he took on the role as a featured designer. With this being the 10th anniversary of the one-of-a-kind event, he wanted to celebrate in true party fashion. “As
I was doing my researching for parties, I lo oked at big parties all over the world, like the Life Ball and Truman Capote’s Black and White Ball,” says Farley. “And all of a sudden I thought, where’s the biggest party that never stops, but Vegas?” His extravagant showgirl design was the perfect fit for the runway.
Each year brings a new level of innovation and the evidence is in the garments that are produced. The final pieces that walk down the runway are full of passion and inspiration. Here’s to another 10 years on the path to designing a future without breast cancer.
