The Bras for a Cause competition, pioneered by One Wig Stand and Fustany.com, launched earlier this month. The project aims to fill the region’s existing fashion hole, as many women in the Middle East who have been affected by breast cancer are unable to find comfortable, affordable and fashionable bras to wear that will accommodate prostheses.
Organizers invite artists, students, graphic designers, illustrators, bloggers, breast cancer survivors and influential Middle Eastern figures to participate in the design competition. One of the entry categories is “The ‘Designer Piece’ Bra Design Category,” in which established fashion designers in the region may submit sketches. (Read about the other categories here)
Take a look at some of the names of the well-known designers who have agreed to take part in the Bras for a Cause campaign. Click on the images to browse through their websites and designs:
And that’s not all! As the campaign expands, the list of designers grows larger and more widespread, with more than 20 participating from the Middle East, and beyond.
Interested in taking part in the competition, but aren’t really a “designer?” That’s okay! Read about what category to enter in, how to submit your sketches, and what prizes you could win here.
