New York Fashion Week: Breast cancer survivors hit the catwalk

Women who survived breast cancer took over the catwalk at New York Fashion Week in an alternative lingerie show to raise funds for charity.

The AnaOno Intimates show was devised by US designer, and breast cancer survivor, Dana Donofree, and introduced by Oscar-winning actress Mira Sorvino.

Models with different shapes and stories proudly bared signs of surgery.

Nearly half of the models had metastatic, or advanced, breast cancer, according to Ms Donofree.

All proceeds went to Cancerland, an outreach and advocacy charity in the US.
