Here's How You Can Support Breast Cancer Awareness | Clozette

As we straighten out the facts about breast cancer, the more evident it is that people, specially women, should be involved in the fight against this disease. However, with our busy schedules and on-the-go lifestyles, we can say that squeezing in our passion for a cause can be a little bit difficult. But supporting an advocacy does not necessarily need to involve picket signs or going door to door to give out flyers.

So if you want to get involved in spreading the word about breast cancer, here are easy but definitely impactful ways to get involved this Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

--------------------------

If you're in Malaysia



Whatever your opinion is about social media, we can't help but deny that it serves a significant role in our modern lives. And one way to raise curiosity and awareness for breast cancer from the comfort of your home is by joining this initiative from Estee Lauder, in partnership with the National Cancer Society of Malaysia. It'll take less than 2 minutes to show your support by changing your profile picture on Facebook with their pink ribbon filter. You can also donate* any amount you can spare to support breast cancer projects in Malaysia by visiting bcacampaign.com.my.

If you're in the Philippines

Five top notch designers, one cause -- Plains & Prints release an exclusive collection in collaboration with Rhett Eala, Rajo Laurel, Randy Ortiz, Maureen Disini, and Vania Romoff to celebrate women empowerment and fortitude towards breast cancer. Each piece is delicately designed with the modern day Filipina in mind. 



On the other hand, if you're free on the 21st of October, why not join fitness club Curves Philippines in their Breast Cancer Awareness Month: Girls Time 2016 event? Guests will be treated to free strength training and zumba sessions, as well as seminars with physicians and nutritionists on the importance of prevention and early detection when it comes to breast cancer.  Find out how you can be a part of the event here!

If you're in Singapore

Brands also take on the lead on breast cancer campaigns in Singapore. Estee Lauder teams up once again with the Breast Cancer Foundation (BCF) for a series of events, in the hopes of encouraging the SG community to take action against this deadly disease. Watch as they illuminate ION Orchard with pink LED lights as a sign of awareness or join this year's bigger and grander Pink Ribbon Walk along with Singapore's social influencers. Plus, you can also level up your beauty routine as you support the cause by checking out Estee Lauder's beauty brands Clinique, Origins, Bobbi Brown, Lab Series, and La Mer as they raise funds for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation® (BCRF). You can take part in this global movement by using #BCAStrength on your social media platforms. 


Fashion also has their share in raising awareness for this cause as Pazzion, also in partnership with BCF, release a pair of limited edition ballerina flats called Pink For Hope. Made of fine leather and completed with pink crystal embellishments, the pair depicts the shower of love and hope that the brand wants to give to all their beneficiaries. For each Pink For Hope pair sold, 30% of its net proceeds will be donated to BCF. You can get your Pazzion Pink For Hope pair here
Share your passion for this cause and join the fight against breast cancer even with the simplest ways. What's important is that we keep informed and involved in spreading the word about breast cancer not just this October, but in all months of the year.

The fight against breast cancer is not just among individual women. The importance of standing up to this deadly disease crosses over other facets of our lives such as our beauty, lifestyle, and fashion choices. And one of the brands who uses their voice to send out a message of prevention, empowerment, and survival for breast cancer is Plains & Prints.

Touched by the journeys of breast cancer survivors, renowned designers from the Philippines Rhett Eala, Rajo Laurel, Randy Ortiz, Maureen Disini, and Vania Romoff crafted and curated uniquely inspiring collections. From romantic silhouettes to modern, structured lines, these collections showed the sheer strength of character and the beauty of each woman, and of course, breast cancer survivors. 


Apart from pink fabrics and details that signify the official colours of breast cancer awareness, this amazing collaboration also shows appreciation for the strength in femininity that is truly a woman's armour not just against breast cancer, but as she endures through her daily roles with great fortitude.

--------------------------

Rhett Eala


 Rhett Eala’s collection focused on femininity with pieces that make a woman feel “beautiful, comfortable, sophisticated, and sexy.” Incorporated in his collection are touches of pink – the color of breast cancer awareness - and accentuated with navy and white for a strong yet feminine fashion statement.


--------------------------

Rajo Laurel


“It has always been my philosophy to empower women through my designs. I create clothes that women can wear with confidence. The first piece is a soft and flowy wrap dress, which is done in a very modern way, while the other is designed with more architecture. The contrasts reflect the complexity and duality of a woman." - Rajo Laurel


-------------------------- 

Randy Ortiz


“The pieces [I created] are more structured and for the active woman. For me, a woman is all about being versatile, so I created pieces that you [could] seamlessly and easily transform from day looks into evening ensembles. This [collection] is for the 21st century woman.” - Randy Ortiz


-------------------------- 

 Maureen Disini


“I wanted to design light, simple, and easy to wear ensembles. I wanted pieces that are relevant to the times, and which can take you from day to night." - Maureen Disini


--------------------------

Vania Romoff



“Taking lead from the colors of femininity such as pink, I built on that with lots of flowers and details. For women, I envisioned ensembles that are soft, easy-to-wear, and romantic." - Vania Romoff

Through the beautiful, sophisticated styles presented in this showcase, Plains & Prints aimed to inspire women to join this advocacy. Plus, in partnership with the ICanServe Foundation, the proceeds of the event went to projects and campaigns supporting the fight against breast cancer.
