TAB: The Fashion Show

Because of the heavy toll AIDS took on the fashion industry early in the epidemic the Telluride Aids Benefit Fashion Show is a fitting highlight to end a week of educational initiatives and community outreach focusing on prevention awareness.

Because TAB’s muse and constant angel, Robert Presley, was a fabric artist with a penchant for strutting his stuff in public in the over-the-top costumes he created – epater le bourgeoisie – it is equally fitting that TAB’s event is a fusion of fashion and theater and the hottest ticket of the winter season.

Proceeds from the evening and the art auction the night before continue to support TAB’s growing list of beneficiaries, including the Western Colorado AIDS Project, Robert’s ally in his battle against the pandemic.

“Telluride Inside…and Out” continues its ongoing coverage of TAB’s events and beneficiaries with a sneak peak at one of the fashion show’s new designers: Alice Schoenau.
