Book Review: Bizarre Bras

Emma Codd

Currently based in the delightful town of Motueka, Emma is pursuing her passion for the written word and yoga teaching. Her motley background and eclectic interests provide Emma with much to write about many things, which she mostly does online. She is also busy unleashing her inner fiction writer.

Bizarre Bras from the World of WearableArt

"Where art, fashion and theatre collide, the only boundaries are the limits of the human imagination."

What do budgies, kiwi fruit, typewriters and candelabras have in common? They have all been taken by designers and turned into bras. Now, the annual World of WearableArt (WOW) Awards Show shares the wonderful creativity of one of its most popular categories: the Bizarre Bra category. Better yet, 20% of the proceeds from each book sale is being donated to the Breast Cancer Research Trust to support their work in finding a cure for breast cancer.

Since 1995, when it first burst onto the WOW stage, the Bizarre Bra category has been a favourite for designers and spectators alike. Not ones for frills and lace, Bizarre Bra designers simply follow their wildest imaginations. These designers prefer materials such as kitchen utensils, teapots, recycled telephones, and hedgehogs. If you can think it, they've turned it into underwear!

Dame Suzie Moncrieff, founder of WOW and creator of the Bizarre Bra category, says that what she enjoys about wearable art, is that it allows designers to step away from societal fashion constraints, and instead "see the body as a blank canvas." Since 1995, nearly 400 Bizarre Bra entries have been chosen to appear on the WOW Awards Show stage. This book highlights the resulting kookiness and creativity, and is an utterly gorgeous, vibrant, and compelling display.

This is a unique gift book, and a treasure for anyone with an interest in all things creative. Believe me, Bizarre Bras gives a new meaning to "over the shoulder boulder holder." This is an absolute must for any coffee table. Enjoy!
