DIFFA/Dallas buttons up stylish soiree ahead of futuristic gala
A little over two weeks before House of DIFFA: Futuro, DIFFA/Dallas hosted an exclusive preview party at downtown Dallas staple Traffic LA at The Joule Hotel to reveal select jackets for the big event.
The fashionable gathering provided guests with a first-hand look at some of the stunning jackets in this year's collection. Guests sipped on exquisite Ketel One cocktails (poured through an impressive ice luge), sparkling rosé by Impeccable Rosé Brut, and bites provided by The Joule Catering. DJ Steffi Burns set the mood with her popular tunes while the evening's guests were dazzled by jackets displayed throughout the room and on models.
Jackets on display included designs from Dolce & Gabanna, Monse, Alberta Ferretti, Sies Marjan, Rosie Assoulin, Zac Posen, Theory, Ted Baker, and many more. Select jackets will be on display in the windows at Traffic LA at The Joule Hotel until the night of House of DIFFA: Futuro.
DIFFA/Dallas board chair Lee Borchert and House of DIFFA event chair Tim Garippa mingled among other board members, style council ambassadors, and stylish guests, including Brittanie and Jason Oleniczak, Parker Williams, Preston Watson, Don Gaiser, John Shore, Amber LaFrance, Neil Patel, Rhonda Sargent Chambers, Steve Kemble, Carol Hatton, Nickki St. George, Darin Kunz, Lea Fisher, Dr. Steven Pounders, Paul Hollowell, Lana Constantine, Andrew Soliz, Darrell Thomas, Ashley Berges, George Field, David Brehm, Kyle Rains, and David Hearn.
This year's theme, House of DIFFA: Futuro, celebrates a future with zero stigma, zero deaths, and zero new infections.

The title sponsor is Headington Companies along with its retailers and The Joule Hotel and presented by The Louis L. Borick Foundation.
