A celebration of Canada’s top fashion design talent, the collection, which has featured more than 100 leading designers to date, showcases original, one-of-a-kind BT Couture – all crafted in 100 per cent pure soft and luxurious sheets of white and pink Cashmere Bathroom Tissue, Canada’s best selling brand.
A fund-and awareness-raiser for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, the sold-out, invitation-only show heralds the annual return of limited-edition Pink Cashmere, with twenty-five cents from the sale of every package going directly to the cause, throughout October Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
An innovative and multi-facetted CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) program, and winner of more than 25 top national and international awards to date, you can read up on last year’s collection here.
