Inspiration Collection

There’s truly lots of helpful information online regarding breast cancer awareness, but it often goes ignored for being either too deja-vu, medical or boring. We strongly believe in the role design plays in getting the right message across so we spent a few days looking online for the most creative samples out there. Below are a few of our favorites and feel free to share them with others or print them out to serve as reminders when needed:

Check out more from our collection of creative self-check tips and references here. We’ll keep adding to it along the way and if you have spotted some interesting breast cancer awareness flyers, campaigns or ads, please share with us by email to onewigstand@gmail.com or by posting directly on our Facebook page.

Events: Christmas Bra-zaar!

You’ve been to a ton of Christmas bazaars over the years and nothing much changes each time – lots of clutter, lots of the same. How about this year you try something different?

Let us ask you this: Have you ever been to a Christmas Bra-zaar? No? Well, you’re in for a unique Christmas event taking place on December 21 and 22, 2011 at One Wig Stand’s space in Achrafieh.

Also, for those who’ve been following the Bras for a Cause Middle East campaign for the past few months and haven’t had the chance to grab your favorite bras from the “Look Good, Feel Good” Collection – then you don’t want to miss this night. The Collection itself will only be on sale at regional outlets until the end of the year, but we still have plenty of sizes and bra styles waiting for you at the Bazaar. Why not give a gift to your friend, mother or sister with a special message? The bras were designed specially for the Bras for a Cause campaign and features the creative talent of regional designers all united for one cause.

Pink never goes out of style.

The last few weeks have been exciting with lots of planning and prepping for the Bras for a Cause ME fashion show (Beirut edition). It was not only the first time the bras and t-shirts for the upcoming “Look Good, Feel Good” collection were showcased, but also the custom pieces by the established designers that took part. Several designers also donated haute-couture pieces for the auction in support of the cause.

The unforgettable night was highlighted by interesting presentations by mastectomy bra specialist Dr. Yolande Badre, designer Rana Salam and breast cancer survivor Evelyne Accad (who also sang her “song of healing”) and performances by talented local bands Black Honey, Lazzy Lung and DJ Dimix. For a few hours Beirut Souks was glowing in pink for one very important cause..

All the bras and t-shirts posted here (and several others) will be a part of the “Look Good, Feel Good” collection that will be sold across the Middle East with full proceeds going towards the following breast cancer organizations: BCFE (Egypt), Breast Friends (UAE), Faireface (Lebanon), iCansurvive (Egypt), Safe and Sound (Egypt) and Zahra Breast Cancer Association (KSA). Funding will go towards breast cancer research in the region, covering the cost of mammographies and providing other specific breast cancer patient needs to facilitate the recovery process. Additionally, Bras for a Cause will be donating mastectomy bras from the collection free-of-charge for breast cancer survivors via those respectable organizations to distribute for women who cannot find the right bra post-treatment.

The shops that will be selling the “Look Good, Feel Good” collection include Galeries Lafayette (Dubai), K-Lynn Lingerie (Lebanon, Kuwait and Dubai), Pink Dust (Amman), Cream (Jeddah), Cream (Beirut), Maison Bo-m (Riyadh), Amuse Concept Store (Cairo) and AuraB.com (Online Store). We’ll be announcing as soon as the collection is in stores in the coming few days.
