A few weeks ago, I was invited to attend the ninth annual White Cashmere Collection, hosted at the newly renovated Arcadian Court here in Toronto by Cashmere Bathroom Tissue. I, unfortunately was away on my Californian retreat and unable to attend this amazing event in support of the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, but that didn’t stop me from checking out the highlights of the show thanks to the video below:
With the help of YouTube, I had a chance to catch the beautiful details of 15 incredible dresses & accessories, all handcrafted by Canadian designers with just Cashmere Bathroom Tissue. Seriously y’all, it is truly the most interesting thing to see these designs up close; I was sad to miss this year’s show and speak with the designers about their inspirations. Even though I could not attend, one thing I was asked to do was take some of my best inspirations from the show and create a meaningful piece for Cashmere’s Facebook Page based on my favourite look.
I am eager to get to my itty bitty collage but must first say, with every white gown that graced the runway, I had to hold back my joy, as I couldn’t help but think to my cousin’s upcoming nuptials this Saturday. I am thrilled to be celebrating with my family and you’ll definitely notice its influence in my piece. Sorry…couldn’t help it. And although I was inspired by the floor-length gowns of love, I did favour another look just a soft touch more.
This look by Laura Siegel was so timely for me, as the layered, soft drapes of white left me pining for cozy knits and gentle cashmere layers of my own. I was instantly brought to a wonderland of winter whites, thick wools and soft & fuzzy cashmere. My own Pinterest design is a collection of all of these worlds: a mixed bag of bridal innocence, with a touch of cashmere, shaken by Alice in Wonderland falling down a winter’s rabbit hole.
My full board is here be sure to repin your favourites from the collection. For now, I leave you with a little taste:
