White Cashmere Collection, Apparel
"The White Cashmere Collection exemplifies the diversity of the Canadian fashion industry and serves as an imaginative showcase for our top design trendsetters," says 2012 collection curator and fashion designer, Farley Chatto. "I am honoured and thrilled to partner with Kruger Products and to collaborate with our talented designers who combined their passion for fashion with support for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation."
This year's collection was photographed by Angus Rowe MacPherson, whose carefully constructed images vibrate with energy, at Toronto's historic Design Exchange. His portfolio of 15 high-fashion Cashmere photos was released at the show and is displayed at Cashmere.ca.

Kruger Products LP's partnership with the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation
"Since the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation began allocating vital funds towards breast cancer research, education and health promotion initiatives over 25 years ago, we have seen significant progress and have led a nation-wide movement to raise awareness and mobilize action on breast cancer," says Sandra Palmaro, CEO Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, Ontario Region. "There is still much work to be done towards our vision of creating a future without breast cancer and we are grateful for the ongoing commitment and support of partners like Cashmere and Kruger Products who have embraced this movement and continue to champion the breast cancer cause through outstanding events like the White Cashmere Collection."
