Runway | Cashmere Collection 2021: New Belle Époque

Genia Evalina – Montreal, QC

COME ONE, COME ALL to the annual Cashmere Collection! I say COME ALL because this will be the first time the 18th annual Cashmere Collection: New Belle Époque will be televised.

This year’s collection theme celebrates the iconic, boundary-pushing era of turn of the 20th century France, which signaled a renaissance-like emergence of innovation in fashion, culture, and technology, fueled by optimism following years of hard times – hi, much like this global pandemic we’re living through.

The annual fund-and-awareness raiser in support of the breast cancer cause hosted an intimate, in-person runway show that, for the first time ever, will appear as a TV special, Cashmere Couture for the Cure. Viewers can tune into this exciting glimpse behind the Bathroom Tissue curtain, hosted by The Social’s Melissa Grelo and Etalk’s Tyrone Edwards with special guest Joe Zee, airing on CTV on Friday, October 8, 2021, 7PM EST and subsequently available on Crave.
