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. 2015 was the first time I participated and this is the bra and ensemble I created. I collaborated with The Piazza Center to design and create this piece for one of Dr. Piazza's patients to model on the runway.
I used gold leaf and metallic paints for the bra and the jeans. Painted unprimed canvas, a painted vintage doily, and painted fabric make up the body and tail of the phoenix.
