Bust Up at The Lightbox Woking

What makes the exhibition so special is the Woking connection of a number of the bras.

Martian bra at "bust up" exhibition

On 3rd October, the start of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Walk the Walk was joined by special guests to celebrate the launch of an exhibition at The Lightbox Gallery in Woking. “Bust Up!” is an exclusive collection of one-of-a-kind bras created by celebrities, artists, designers and local businesses. Woking has been the home of the charity since it started 21 years ago.

The unique collection includes stunning bras created by top fashion designers Jeff Banks CBE and Julien Macdonald OBE, adding a touch of celebrity sparkle. A bra designed by Meccanica for Olympic champion, Jason Kenny OBE, features a replica Olympic gold medal. 

 

What makes the exhibition so special is the Woking connection of a number of the bras:- 

  • A McLaren F1 bra signed by the Woking team’s current Formula 1 drivers Fernando Alonso and Stoffel Vandoorne.
  • An incredible HG Wells’ “War of the Worlds” Martian inspired bra, made by artist Michael Condron who also created Woking’s famous Martian sculpture.
  • The bra designed by aspiring fashion designers from Woking College, Téa Breeze Harwood and Sophie Milne, reflected the architecture of The Lightbox building and gave everyone a taste of what to expect in the future.
  • Woking-based lingerie company HanesBrands showed their support with a Wonderbra creation.

That's Surrey TV interviewed Walk the Walk Founder & Chief Executive, Nina Barough CBE on the night about the eye-catching exhibition and the story behind it. You can watch Nina's interview in full below.
