DIFFA isn’t just about its spring couture collection. Each fall, designers create one-of-a-kind wreaths — from the uber-fabulous to the tastefully elegant — to be auctioned off in support of DIFFA’s HIV/AIDS work. This year, the champagne-and-hors d’oeuvres soiree is set for Nov. 7, at Dallas Market Hall, from 6–9 p.m. Tickets are $75, but the real treat is placing the winning on a cool wreath.
Thursday was Dallas’ most fashionable day of the week — perhaps the year. On the heels of DIFFA on Saturday, three fashion events spread throughout the day captured our imaginations — and monopolized our time.
DIFFA’s gala went toward the glam of smoking jackets — you saw a lot less denim than in previous years, but just as much skin, with a runway show that popped with fabulosity. The drag queens from the Rose Room probably got the biggest ovation when they took the stage in all-out ownership; touchingly, in the program they dedicated their performance to their recently passed colleague, Erica Andrews.
