HOUSE OF DIFFA: MASQUERADE
It took our team of four + 130 models + 40 makeup artists, body painters and nail artists + 20 mask and hat makers + 15 hairstylists + 1 floral artist + countless dressers and hundreds of thousands of dollars of clothes nine weeks to prepare for two fashion shows totaling thirty minutes on a runway that would raise funds and awareness for HIV/AIDS in North Texas.
This was House of DIFFA 2014, Masquerade.
