Canada’s fashion stars dazzled at the 19th Annual Cashmere Collection Celestial Awakening: A Celebration of Strength, Hope, and Compassion on September 22 in Toronto.

Twelve designers from across Canada revealed their unique and breathtaking visions of a future without breast cancer at a one-of-a-kind show of original couture—all entirely crafted in sheets of Cashmere UltraLuxe Bathroom Tissue. Made in Canada by Kruger Products, Cashmere is Canada’s best-selling Bathroom Tissue brand.

A VIP audience of Canadian fashion industry stargazers and tastemakers sparkled at the annual, invite-only, runway event presented by Cashmere Collection Curator, Jay Manuel, who hails from Scarborough, Ont. and now calls New York City home. Famed for his roles on America’s Next Top ModelCanada’s Next Top Model and E! Network, Jay has been following the collection for years.

“Canada has an amazing wealth of fashion talent, and seeing these creative visionaries bring their show-stopping designs to life as a collection on the runway is truly an epic spectacle,” says a proud Jay Manuel, who is curating the collection for the first time.

“Our 2022 theme, Celestial Awakening, is a Celebration of Strength, Hope, and Compassion and asked our designers to look to the heavens for inspiration. I am totally blown away by the creativity, skill, and craftsmanship that went into each and every design,” he says.
