Eight leading Canadian designers revealed a unique vision of a future without breast cancer, at the Fifth Annual White Cashmere Collection 2008: A Touch of Pink fashion show in Toronto, on September 19.
An original and breathtaking expression of fashion with compassion, the one-of-a-kind show of BT Couture is entirely crafted from 100 per cent pure, soft and luxurious sheets of pure White Cashmere, Canada’s best-selling bathroom tissue. This year’s collection also includes new, limited-edition Pink Cashmere, Canada’s first coloured bathroom tissue in a decade. Twenty-five cents from the sale of every package will go to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.
“The White Cashmere Collection 2008 is a luxurious celebration of Canadian fashion and a perfect complement to Cashmere Bathroom Tissue, an everyday luxury”, says Nancy Marcus, Corporate Vice President, Consumer Marketing at Kruger Products, maker of Cashmere. “The introduction of Pink Cashmere represents Kruger Products’ commitment to a cause that’s important to our consumers and our company,” she says.
Curated by Susan Langdon, Executive Director of the Toronto Fashion Incubator, the world’s first and only designer BT Couture collection stars eight Canadian fashion luminaries including: Arthur Mendonça, David Dixon, Joeffer Caoc, Evan Biddell, winner of Project Runway Canada, Joyce Gunhouse and Judy Cornish for Comrags, Lucian Matis, Thien Le and Ula Zukowska.
“The White Cashmere Collection: A Touch of Pink combines fashion with compassion in a new and tangible way,” says collection curator Susan Langdon. “Noted Toronto hair and photo stylist Jason Kearns teamed up with photographer Richard Dubois to create the high fashion photography. I encourage everyone to check out our designers’ amazing creativity and skill,” she adds.
