Uncategorized | March 20, 2012
From a UW press release:
“Project Runway All Stars” finalist and season eight runner-up Mondo Guerra will speak Friday, March 23, at 7 p.m. in the University of Wyoming Union Ballroom.
He also will guest judge for “The Condom Couture” fashion show that begins at 9 p.m. Friday in the Wyoming Union Ballroom. Friday Night Fever and FACE AIDS sponsor the program to bring awareness to issues of sexual health and HIV/AIDS in a relaxed and entertaining atmosphere.
“UW student designers have created condom-inspired designs and will take the runway to win first-place and a cash prize,” says Kat Nicola, Friday Night Fever marketing chair.
“Recognized for his impeccable construction and styling, masterful mix of prints and fearless use of color, Mondo will speak about his experience on ‘Project Runway,'” Nicola adds.
After Mondo emotionally disclosed on “Project Runway” that he is HIV-positive, he became a dedicated advocate for HIV/AIDs awareness. He and fellow “Project Runway” alumnus Jack Mackenroth have partnered with pharmaceuticals company Merck for the HIV and AIDS education campaign “Living Positive by Design.”
In addition to raising awareness about HIV/AIDS and FACE AIDS, the event will also raise funds for Partners in Health, an internationally recognized health care provider.
