Toronto, ON, September 29, 2021 – Canada’s iconic Cashmere Collection returned live on the runway, after a lockdown year like no other, at an in-person runway show in support of breast cancer awareness and research, at The Globe and Mail Centre on Tuesday, September 28, in Toronto.   

The collection, which features Canada’s leading designers, showcases 16 brilliant creators, all new to the collection this year, in a remarkable show of Fashion with Compassion manifested in the form of luxuriously soft Cashmere Bathroom Tissue Couture.  

This years’ collection theme, The NEW Belle Époque, draws inspiration from innovative, boundary-pushing turn-of-the-20th Century France, and presents a modern take on the historical Belle Époque era, best characterized by new-found strength, optimism, and innovation following troubled times — much like we are living today.  

The Cashmere Collection 2021 will also be broadcast throughout Canada, for the first time ever on CTV in Cashmere Couture for the Cure, a TV Special designed for all Canadians to enjoy on Friday, October 8, at 7PM EST. The half hour show will also be available for viewing on Crave.

Ushering In a NEW Era of Optimism and Compassion 


“We see a strong reflection of the Belle Époque era in our current cultural climate,” says Susan Irving, Chief Marketing Officer at Kruger Products, proudly made-in-Canada manufacturer of Cashmere Bathroom Tissue.  

“Our goal is to showcase Canadians’ strength and resilience with this larger-than-ever 2021 collection. Our NEW Belle Époque theme serves as a reminder of the optimism and strength Canadians have shown through turbulent times, and honours the strength demonstrated by the thousands of people affected by breast cancer every year.”  

The Belle Époque, a unique period of French history, was characterized by creativity, optimism, elegance and innovation following hard times. Dating from 1880 through 1914, the era housed a number of important fashion innovations. Most notably, Haute Couture emerged with the first made-to-order dresses, including a new silhouette in the form of the empire waist and the corset. Trends such as ruffles, lace, square and sweetheart necklines dominated as primary trends of the time.  


The 16 Designers of the Cashmere Collection 2021: The NEW Belle Époque 


The Cashmere Collection spotlights Canada’s world-class, generous fashion designers, and their support of the cause through their art. It has raised millions of dollars for breast cancer through its 18 years.  

 ● The Cashmere Collection 2021: The NEW Belle Époque features 16 incredible designers from across Canada, with key focus on the designer: Anisha Kumar – Brampton, Ontario 

Anisha Kumar’s bio, garment descriptions, sketches, and quotes: 

Designer Biography: Toronto fashion designer (and U of T business grad) ANISHA KUMAR has a simple goal for her unique and extravagantly alluring ready-to-wear and made-to-order special occasion gowns: “I’ve always been the type of person that, when something doesn’t exist, I’ll go out and I’ll make it!” After a 2018 trip to India sparked her interest in her Southeast Asian heritage, Anisha launched her eponymous label focused on expanding and modernizing traditional Indian idioms—the vibrant sense of colour, the elaborate embroidered and metallic brocade fabrics and the sari components, such as the fitted, cropped bodice or choli. Her unique design styles will lend themselves well to the Cashmere Collection 2021. 

Garment Description: There’s no mistaking Toronto designer ANISHA KUMAR’s intentions with this Cashmere Collection confection. Her strapless mini-dress—with its channeled bodice and braided “belt”—is all about sweet seduction. The long, voluminous train is the added whipped cream on top!

About Breast Cancer and the Canadian Cancer Society   


The Canadian Cancer Society (CCS) is the only national charity that supports Canadians with all cancers in communities across the country. No other organization does what we do; we are the voice for Canadians who care about cancer. We fund ground-breaking research, provide a support system for all those affected by cancer and shape health policies to prevent cancer and support those living with the disease.   

CCS is the largest national charitable funder of breast cancer research in Canada. Research investments combined with early detection, and better treatment therapies have resulted in a 44% decrease in the breast cancer death rate since the late 1980s. More work needs to be done as breast cancer is still the most commonly diagnosed cancer and the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths among women in Canada. Funds raised through this partnership will be invested in CCS’s leading breast cancer research and support programs.
