Yesterday, while our other FLARE editors were off in London and Milan for the international shows, we attended the only fashion presentation that brings the bathroom to the runway: White Cashmere Collection’s Fashion With Compassion 2010 held at Toronto’s AGO. Curated by LUSH’s Magazine’s Serge Kerbel, fifteen Canadian designers showed off creations made almost entirely with the pink and white tissue. Think everything from bathing suits to ballgowns. Our favourites were by Renata Morales, Paris Li and Orange by Angela Chen. Beyond just an impressive display of TP couture skills, the project raises funds for breast cancer research. Twenty five cents from the sale of each package of pink toilet paper (very Valley of the Dolls, we think) goes to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. Also, by visiting Couture for the Cure and selecting for your favourite frock, cashmere will generously donate $1 for every vote cast to the Foundation. Check out all of the creations on display at The Bay’s Toronto and Montreal flagships windows during October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
