Watch: The 12th Annual White Cashmere Collection Fashion Show

Toilet paper is the last material one would associate with the luxurious finery of wedding gowns.

But a group of talented Canadian designers came up with some innovative ways of turning this most humble and disposable paper into extravagant bridal wear concoctions.

While no bride will actually say “I do” in these toilet paper wedding dresses, these fantastical creations floated down the aisle in a very special fashion show last week at the Carlu in Toronto.

It was the 12th Annual White Cashmere Collection fashion show – an event that features creations made entirely from the soft sheets of White Cashmere bathroom tissue, all with the aim to raise funds and awareness for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.

Curated by wedding trend expert Jessica Mulroney of Kleinfeld, this year marked the first time the popular fashion show featured all bridal dresses, designed by 15 Canadian bridal designers ranging from traditionalists like Kim Ironmonger of Valencienne to modernists like Sunny Fong of the Vawk label. And because no bride comes without a trousseau – included in the show were jewelry, hats and lingerie also fashioned from bathroom tissue.

 

With October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month, $0.25 from every sale of the limited-edition pink Cashmere bathroom tissue will support CBCF.

Here’s an up-close look at some of the dresses from the show:
