Every year the BCRC has an Art Bra event in Austin, Texas where breast cancer survivors model bras for charity. BCRC put together an annual GRAPHIC Art Bra Runway Show. Now, this event is called Art Bra.
Art Bras signed by Yoko Ono, Willie Nelson, Mack Brown and The Beach Boys, along with elaborate, elegant bras made by artists and celebrities, were featured in the Art Bra Runway Show and Auction benefiting the Breast Cancer Resource Center (BCRC).
This year, at Graphic 5, I was one of the art bra models on the runway. I got to model a bra created by Cynthia Mason and signed by Bebe Buell (model, singer, Liv Tyler’s mom).
All bras were modeled by breast cancer survivors. It was very empowering for us. Some women, still in treatment, proudly walked down the runway bald. Many, like me, had undergone bilateral mastectomies with or without reconstruction.
