Anticipated like no other fashion event of the season, DIFFA Dallas’ annual Collection gala presents one-of-a-kind, celebrity-designed jackets, auctioned to a crowd of our city’s most stylish guests. A seated dinner, over-the-top runway presentation, and cocktail party round out the black tie evening.
The upcoming 2013 event will take place on Saturday, March 23rd at the Hilton Anatole Hotel, marking the organization’s 23rd year raising funds for men, women, and children affected by HIV and AIDS. To date, DIFFA has granted over $5.5 million dollars to the cause.
Announced just this week, new for DIFFA Collection 2013 are this year’s theme, House of DIFFA, as well as title sponsors, the Headington Companies and the Joule Hotel & Retail. Less self-evident than last year’s YSL motif, Smoking Haute, no information is yet available regarding specific House of DIFFA details.
We do know, however, that soon-to-open Joule boutiques TenOverSix and Traffic will be featured in the Brian Brothers and Jan Strimple-produced runway show. Also, Dallas star Linda Gray will serve as Honorary Chair.
