White Cashmere Collection: when Paper meets solidarity


A vision of the future with no breast cancer, also thanks to paper: the White Cashmere Collection is known as a unique initiative in the world that displays works of art by famous designers in soft Cashmere Bathroom Tissue (BT) with a social purpose. Here is an overview of the garments shown during the 2016 edition.

Real masterpieces by famous designers have been shown on the catwalk: evening gowns in both modern and retro style, highly futuristic and romantic at the same time, for tennis players and people sitting in a wheelchair. The aim of the catwalk is to raise funds for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation (CBCF), i.e. a national charity active in the field of research on breast cancer in Canada, and thus raise the awareness of the general public on this very topical issue.The catwalk was organized following the initiative of Kruger Products LP  – producer of the Cachemire brand – serving the Canadian market with labels like Cashmere, Purex, SpongeTowels and Scotties for domestic, industrial and commercial purposes all over Canada and the United States.

  • Narces, Toronto. Narces brings heat to a summer evening gown featuring a barely-there petaled Cashmere BT bodice and an undulating, above-the-knee full skirt that swoops and dives to the floor, finishing in a long, elegant train. Nikki Yassemi’s Narces line of silk, lace, tulle and chiffon evening dresses, bridal gowns and cocktail dresses oozes a sort of Fifties/Sixties international chic, a sexy Bond-girlish appeal. The source of the cosmopolitanism is obvious: this Toronto-based designer was born in Austria, then spent her wonder years in Iran and the U.K. before landing in Toronto, where she scooped up a U of T biology degree and an MBA from the Schulich School of Business at York University. The fashion know-how may be genetic: her mother worked with esteemed British tailor-to-the- royals, Victor Edelstein.
