White Cashmere Collection: a post inspired by designer Laura Siegel

Last week I attended a fashion show, held at the newly renovated Arcadian Court, in support of the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. In addition to a worthy cause, the show was unique because the 15 Canadian designers showcased all used bathroom tissue, yup TP, (in sheets as opposed to the perforated strips) in the design of their creations.  From evening dresses to children's wear, an entire fashion show of clothing made of bathroom tissue is an impressive feat. So it was not an easy task when I was asked to create a collage representing my favourite look for the Cashmere Facebook page. Ultimately, eco-designer Laura Siegel's ethereal frock won my vote. The theme of the show was "Hollywood" and I thought that Siegel's design had a ghostly quality that also reminded me of the ocean. Sadly, I had to run immediately after the show, so I was not able to ask her whether this is at all accurate. Here is my collage as inspired by Laura Siegel's design for White Cashmere Collection:
