Bust Breast Cancer
BUST BREAST CANCER
On Wednesday, September 26, 2018, Breast cancer survivors walked the catwalk Wednesday night modeling bras designed and decorated by local artists during a fashion show at L’Auberge Casino and Hotel in Baton Rouge, LA. The finale bra, created by Angie Crabtree, was modeled by breast cancer survivor Rose Marie Fife, who is also the Bust Breast Cancer Chairperson.
This is the sixth year for the event, founded by Heather Kleinpeter.
Woman’s Hospital’s annual “Bust Breast Cancer” event raises money for Woman’s Breast Cancer Out Reach program which includes funding for screening and cancer support.
Four judges were comparing the artists bras with a set of unique criteria, from “Breast Overall” to “Most Mammorable.” Mostly the judges were looking for originality and creativity. For the first time in the shows history, every single model, all 28 of them, were breast cancer survivors. Each model walked the runway with the artist that created their bra.
