Runway | White Cashmere Collection 2013 Celebrates a Decade of Design
Quite possibly one of my favourite shows throughout the year; being my fourth collection I’ve seen they’re a hot topic after ending. Each. And. Every. Year. Seriously though, if you’ve been to any you’ll agree that they get better year after year.
Celebrating its tenth White Cashmere Collection where twenty top Canadian fashion designers create Cashmere BT (bathroom tissue) Couture to Support Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. A tribute to Designing a Future without Breast Cancer, where all the pieces were entirely crafted in pure, soft and luxurious Cashmere BT at the Art Gallery of Ontario. The collection highlights Cashmere’s generous and ongoing support of the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation and heralds the annual return of limited-edition Pink Cashmere, a fund- and awareness-raiser for the Foundation, with twenty-five cents from the sale of every package going directly to the cause, throughout October Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
The White Cashmere Collection has featured more than 125 top Canadian designers since its debut in 2004 and the 10th annual collection features a star-studded cast of new and returning designers including: member of the Order of Canada, Marie Saint Pierre, David Dixon, Lucian Matis, Paul Hardy, VAWK by Sunny Fong, Joseph Helmer, Hoax Couture by Jim Searle and Chris Tyrell, Comrags by Joyce Gunhouse and Judy Cornish, Anastasia Lomonova, Rita Tesolin, Rod Philpott, Christopher Paunil, Carlie Wong, Jason Matlo, David Dunkley Fine Millinery, L’Autre Couture by Luko Marion, MICALLA by Camilla Jørgensen, DylaniumKnits by Dylan Uscher, DUY by Duy Nguyen and curator Farley Chatto.
