Noble Breast Cancer Awareness initiative named ‘Bras for a Cause’ started six months ago with campaign, design competition and had finally culminated with fashion show that took place in Beirut and Dubai. Organised by Fustany and One Wig Stand, the big event in Dubai happened on 24th October at the ballroom of Monarch Dubai Hotel.
As one of the Ambassadors I was honored with invitation to participate and for the fist time in my life I actually played a role of a model that walked the ramp for the great cause. My fellow bloggers were the best runway company ever and apparently the show was huge success. It felt great to be able to contribute in such beautiful way.

We all wore fabulous and comfy Aennis Eunis shoes that were later given to ‘models’ as a gift and beautiful memorabilia
The profit from Beirut Tickets, Dubai Tickets, auction and proceeds of the ‘Look Good, Feel Good’ collection will be donated to 5 organizations:
1. Safe & Sound – UAE
2. BCFE & iCansurvive – Egypt
3. Faire Face – Lebanon
4. Zahra – KSA
I’ll take this opportunity to thank everyone involved and especially to Amira Azzouz of Fustany, Loryne Atoui of One Wig Stand, Dana Abdelhadi and Zahirah Variawa of Expose Communications and Basma Masri of B.Beautiful.
I hope we made a little bit of difference.
