The 2017 Bra Project Finalists

Beautiful Inside and Out by Madison Gregory (Hilton Head Island High School)

The design of this bra is dedicated to all of those affected by breast cancer. The pink color scheme and breast cancer ribbon design on the back of the bra represents breast cancer awareness. The stones represent the strength and beauty of those who have to face the difficulty of breast cancer, and the ruffles and flower represent beauty and growth of breast cancer survivors, inside and out.


Perfectly Pointed by Abigail Babcock (Hilton Head Island High School)

A monochromatic color scheme encompasses this design, highlighted by ribbons created by pencil points. The use of a colored pencil as the creative component of this design symbolizes how we are the author of our outlook on life.

“Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.”


The Road to Recovery: A Push in the Right Direction by Makenzie Jeffries (Savannah Arts Academy)

My godmother just recently found out she has stage 4 cancer and recently started her treatments. She has gotten the “travel bug” and wants to check off as many travel destinations as possible. She is my inspiration for this Bra Project and why I chose travel maps as my main source of materials. I love that she is doing what she has always wanted to do and is living her life-not letting cancer get her down.


The Swan Song
by Cat Laster (Savannah Arts Academy)

The first person I ever knew who was diagnosed with cancer was my elementary school music teacher. This led me to choose sheet music as my main source of materials for my design. My music teacher inspired my love of music and I choose to honor her memory through this Bra Project.



True Colors by Ivana Reyna (Hilton Head Island High School)

This bra was designed with crayons assembled on a handmade plaster base. Some of the crayons were melted and symbolically represent that although change in our life happens, our colors will not only remain the same…but they can transform into something even more beautiful than they once were.

“Sometimes when things are falling apart, they might actually be falling into place.”

The Wonder Bra by Juliana Rosenberry (Hilton Head Island High School)

This superhero theme bra was inspired by the fight with breast cancer and its eventual defeat. Broken mirrors are the main component of the design and meant to symbolically reflect how the renewal of strength is found from within. The fairy lights woven throughout the design also reflect the power of our internal light. The cape and chain represent the strength of a hero.

“She needed a hero, so that’s who she became.”
