Cancer has claimed many of Lauren’s loved ones, creating a strong passion in her to fight back. After meeting her Art Bra model, Eleanor, through her mentor, she was invited to work with her on an art bra design.
In designing “Scarlet Phoenix,” Lauren sought “to glorify this body that had gone through treatments, hospitals, surgeries, and traumas, only to persist and thrive today – like a phoenix from the ashes, one is reborn a survivor.”
The bra is inspired by the beautiful spirit and courage of Eleanor Derounian. “It is an honor to build this for her to wear… I want her to be the most fabulous thing in the room.”
