Over 1400 people are scheduled to attend the 2022 Bra Couture® KC event. If you have interest in making a donation of a piece of artwork or design a couture bra to compete for a place on the runway, please review the following guidelines for submission:
To participate in the Diamond Walk donations for silent auction items, a completed donor form and photo must be submitted along with every item. We are seeking restaurant gift cards, hotel stays, event tickets, purses, jewelry, etc.
To donate an item for the silent auction “diamond walk” on event night, please contact Carrie Wilke at
816-213-6479 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
To donate a designer purse for our Designer Purse auction in the Diamond Walk, please contact Mindy Lallier at 913-433-3690 or email@example.com
Our survivor runway models donate months of their time to prepare for and walk the runway. They are the essence of our event!
*The deadline has closed for couture designed bras and runway designs have been selected with models completely styled. Questions related to creating or donating a couture designed bra for 2022 should be directed to Jennifer Dunham at firstname.lastname@example.org or 660-441-5491.
Please note: Art bra designs submitted will be used either for the live runway fashion show and auction or for Bra Couture® KC’s silent auction. Design guidelines have been established to best position each artist with the opportunity for their design to be considered for the live runway fashion show and silent auction.
The deadline for art bra submittals has passed so any donations would either be placed into the silent auction for 2021 or can be carried over for 2022.
To volunteer at our annual event, please call Sarah Murphy at 816-490-2771 or email Sarah at email@example.com.
Bra Couture® KC’s annual event is a huge undertaking; we actually turn an empty private airplane hangar into what can be almost called a ballroom. Click here to see the map of the event space and how we stage that space for our event.
Once you see that space, you know not only the effort but all of the details of what is required; so how do we do that exactly?
With donations; donations from so many vendors, couture designed bras, purses, artwork, sports memorabilia, e.g., The Kansas City Royals through Nick Kenny donated over $1200 of signed items to us for 2019. Also, the wine tower….all of this is in the silent auction area.
Bra Couture® KC is also proud to be supported by individuals from Kansas City’s sports teams; Alex Gordon has selected Bra Couture® KC as his charity of choice and Nick Kenny Head Athletic Trainer/Director of Medical Services at The Kansas City Royals is on our board and through him, the Royals donate over $1,000 of sports memorabilia to BCKC. As we launched and grew, Bra Couture® KC received support from Chiefs executives, Dustin Colquitt and Rita and Lamar Hunt, with Harrison Butker joining Dustin on the runway for 2019. The Chiefs Ambassadors have shared their celebrity with us for the past 7 years with several members including Bobbie Bell, Anthony Davis, and Walter White who we loved and lost to cancer.
We owe such gratitude to all of our donors, our celebrities, and our volunteers; for 2021 we will have over 100 ZTA Sorority members from William Jewell College as volunteers….just amazing.
