It's back! The 8th annual “Reconstructed Bra Fashion Show & Auction” returns to raise some eyebrows and money for a good cause on Thursday, May 17, 2018 at the Southampton Social Club in Southampton, NY. The fun starts at 7 p.m. and, after eight years, artists and creative types are still creating new ways to transform bras into wearable art.

The entire evening is to benefit Hamptons-based breast cancer organizations Lucia’s Angels and the Coalition for Women’s Cancers at Stony Brook Southampton Hospital.

The evening will feature around 20 "reconstructed" bras worn by local models and auctioned live. Full open bar and high-end appetizers will be served. If past years are any guide, it's likely the event will sell out.
