Katie Stutheit has been chosen as the Lethbridge College’s representative for the Canada-wide White Cashmere Collection 2017 competition.
Stutheit was one of 11 Lethbridge College students to create original couture made of Cashmere Bathroom Tissue. Her dress, based on Canada’s iconic trillium flower, was selected as one of 16 designs from across Canada that will be shown on the runway during an exclusive event at the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto on Sept. 28. Three designs will be chosen to win fashion bursaries from Cashmere.
Stutheit called the process “the most remarkable opportunity to celebrate who I am as a Canadian and who I am as a young designer.”
