Sarah Nicol has grown accustomed to designing clothes using different materials. Leather, lace and linen are some of the materials she has used in the past, but now she is putting them aside to dabble with a new one.

The Seneca Fashion Arts graduate, who now works as a Product Design and Development Associate at the Hudson's Bay Company, was one of 15 Canadian designers selected to take part in the annual White Cashmere Collection — a fashion show where Canadian designers make dresses, sweaters and hats all out of bathroom tissue.

Since graduating from Seneca in 2005, Sarah has been making a name for herself in the industry.

Two years ago, she won the Toronto Fashion Incubator's Barbie-inspired fashion challenge and also received media attention for her work from Canada’s leading style books, including ELLE Canada and Flare.

Her Cashmere creations, which includes the design pictured right, will be shown on the runway in Toronto this fall.
