Art Bra Austin is a fundraiser for Breast Cancer Resource Center of Texas. Artists and designers create/design bras for a runway show in which all the models are breast cancer patients and survivors. The bras are auctioned off to raise money for the center. This is the bra and ensemble I created in 2017. I collaborated with The Piazza Center to design and create this piece for one of Dr. Piazza's patients to model on the runway.
My inspiration for this piece was my painting "Flare". For the bra I did three small fluid paintings which I then cut up in pieces. I took the canvas pieces and created the look of the bra from them, tacking them to the bra and adding tulle on the back of the pieces. I designed the skirt, had fabric printed from my painting "Flare" and worked with a seamstress to create it.
