The DIFFA/Dallas Board of Trustees is excited to announce Smoking Haute Collection 2012.
This year’s event takes place on Saturday March 31 at the Hilton Anatole and celebrates a reinvention of classic fashion.
In 1966 Yves Saint Laurent introduced Le Smoking, a tailored tuxedo jacket for women. A revolutionary idea that brought traditional male tailoring to the feminine form.
We reinvent this fashion classic in 2012 with top name designers from around the county interpreting the Smoking Jacket with one-of-a kind couture designs for both men and women.
Join us in a black tie celebration of fashion and design. Experience a silent auction including smoking jackets, live auction, dinner, an amazing runway show, theater, after party, spectacle and excitement in a way that only DIFFA can deliver. All benefiting North Texas HIV/AIDS charities.
Don’t miss Smoking Haute DIFFA Collection 2012.
