The Clock Ticks for Designers Participating in “Bras For A Cause” Middle East

June 26th is the final deadline for participants submitting designs for the “Bras for a Cause” Middle East Design Competition. Organizers of the competition, One Wig Stand and Fustany.com, have reported that they’ve received some great designs. For the rest of us, we have a little more than a week to get inspired, and get sketching.

If you find yourself lacking inspiration or enthusiasm for the project, but really want to get involved and submit some sketches, try out Maya Zankoul‘s fun application on Fustany, to get your creative wheels turning. It walks you through shapes, colours, patterns and embellishments for your bra design. Take a look the design I came up with (It combines some of the same elements as my official entry for the competition, which I will be submitting later this week!):

International designers confirm participation in “Bras for a Cause Middle East” competition

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)
