Slideshow: 11 extraordinarily elaborate gowns made out of toilet paper

2013 Cashmere Fashion Show

Toilet paper—even very fancy, ultra-thick toilet paper—is delicate. Gowns—especially very fancy, ultra-conceptual gowns—are complex. Therein lies the draw of Cashmere’s annual fashion show, for which Canadian designers produce show-stopping dresses using large swaths of toilet paper (or “bathroom tissue,” as the company’s press materials call it). This year, the charity event benefitting the Breast Cancer Foundation returned to the AGO to mark its 10th anniversary. During the entirely pink-and-white show, top designers like David Dixon, Sunny Fong, Marie Saint Pierre and Jason Matlo showcased remarkable feats of engineering. Here are our favourites.
